After a long search for dvd Camcorder I decided on the Canon HR10 - Perfect choice, it is very user friendly, compact and light.
The quality is fantastic, recording straight onto dvd, perfect!
I have used both dvd and camera functions, the quality of the still pics is fantastic! Load the dvd, shoot, finalize and play on your dvd player - simple.
Built in flash and video light, records onto dvd and sd card, it has a huge amount of features you can use, battery life is pretty good.
I would give the HR10 10 out of 10!
