Canon Announces DC50 DVD Camcorder

Canon just announced its new DC50 DVD Camcorder. This $799 handheld camcorder is feature-rich and is perfect for those on the fence between amateurs and professional. The DC50 offers direct-to-DVD recording, a 5.39-megapixel CCD image sensor for 5-megapixel photos, 10x optical/200x digital zoom, DIGIC DV II technology, level and grid image marking, and the ability to record in true HD.

You’ll be able to capture some sweet footage with this bad boy. Then you can transfer it all via USB 2.0 and edit it with the included Roxio software. Want the DC50? You’ll have to ride it out until mid-February, when it’s due to be released.
