They also record to DVD-R DL (dual layer) discs that can store up to 108 minutes of video. The Canon DC330 DVD Camcorder also offers exclusive Canon 48x Advanced Zoom, a feature only possible with industry-leading optical technology.

    great camcorder for the price. perfect for taking family videos or youtube stuff. had it for a year with no problems. stick with the mini dv, the sdram video is too slow and the HD is limited....more info
  • Not 48x Optical Zoom, but 37x !
    One remark: The camera has 37x OPTICAL ZOOM and 48x Advanced Zoom (optical + digital combined), a proprietary technology of Canon. This is true for the 320 and 310 also.

    Amazon recommends the DVD+RW and I purchased them. Guess what? It doesnt work. Other reviews point this out. I wasn't able to capture the birth of my daughter this past Sunday....more info
  • Love this camera!
    This camera is light, small, very intuitive and easy to maneuver. I chose the Canon DC330 over the DC310 because this model has the USB connection. I like recording on DVDs because I need to backup my computer anyway. Sound quality is very clear. ...more info
  • the mini-dvds shown do NOT work with this camcorder
    I don't know why amazon includes the sony mini-dvds on this page, because they do NOT work with this camera! I ordered them based on amazon's recommendation and they are not compatible. I'm having a tough time finding a mini dvd-rw that will work with the camera. Otherwise, it is ok. The movie editing software isn't very easy though, but the picture quality is fantastic. Colors are true to life and recording is easy. My two complaints are mini-dvd-rw issue and crappy software for editing.

    UPDATE: Spoke to Canon and now know the difference is the plus/minus! This camcorder requires DVD-R/RW (notice minus sign) and cannot use the DVD+R/RW (notice plus sign). When purchasing mini dvds make sure to get the minus and then just about any brand should work (verbatim definitely does)....more info
  • canon camcorder
    This was a great purchase. The controls are easy to operate. Small but very effecient....more info
  • Why bother?
    No hard drive, can't record directly onto a memory card. Waste of time and money. Buy one with a hard drive instead....more info
  • Great picture
    Just purchased the DC330 camcorder in late July 2008. I must say the video is very clear and the colors saturated. The most impressive thing to me was the zoom. It's incredible! I video recorded my kids when they were getting surfing lessons. I was probably 30 yards from them. The resulting video made it seem as though I was right beside them. I even captured a decent audio from them! I wish the still picture capability were better than 1M but the video is superb. My only real issue was that one of the CDs that came with the camcorder was scratched on delivery and I am not able to load the software at this point. I am in contact with Canon at the moment. We'll see how their customer service is I guess....more info
