Advice has been given time and again on avoiding hybrid cameras if you are particular about the quality of video. The reason for this is very simple, video quality of most still digital cameras are just not that good, with even the best digital cameras often producing grainy videos.

However, the truth is that even though we love video cameras, a lot of people cannot afford to get a separate still camera and video cam. Splitting your budget to buy two dedicated cameras also doesn’t make sense because you’ll just end up with a crappy video cam and digital still cam.

If you have budget woes, like most people do, then the way to go might be to buy a point and shoot camera that has a good reputation for shooting quality videos. Sure, you can bet the videos they take will be nothing compared to those the best video cams can, but until you save up for a high-end video cam or make lots of money via FOREX trading then you can at least shoot decent videos.

Ive seen the CANON DC40 and I am impressed. Canon DC40 is very attractive with a functional design It was built with solid quality. The videcam is very decent daytime and surprisingly solid low-light video quality and has a broad set of semimanual photo and video controls.

However,the videocam also has its boo-boos. It has small LCD and it uses Mini SD cards rather than standard SD. It has a blinding video light and there’s no S-Video input for converting analog video to DVDs.

The important bottomline here is that the Canon DC40 definitely deserves a spot on your short list of DVD camcorders.
