Straight-to-DVD, widescreen-ready Megapixel video recording – for everyone.


Capture vivid, detailed images via a high quality Megapixel CCD. Recording direct to DVD (-R/-RW/-R DL) is the most convenient way to get your movies onto the big screen: simply finalise a disc in-camera before watching it back in your home DVD player. No waiting, no fuss.

Be part of the action

You’ll get closer to every moment you shoot thanks to the DC230’s powerful 35x optical zoom lens. Move nearer by activating the 1000x digital zoom. An Electronic Image Stabilizer (EIS) cuts out camera shake, most noticeable at the upper range of the zoom.

True widescreen

The DC230 is optimised for true 16:9 recording, allowing you to record movies in cinematic widescreen. To make sure you get the perfect shot, preview images in widescreen too: the camcorder features a 2.7" 16:9 LCD and a wide 0.27" EVF (Electronic Viewfinder).


Inherited from Canon’s High Definition camcorder range, DIGIC DV II is a super-fast processor featuring advanced noise reduction technology: enjoy high quality movies and photos full of vivid colours that remain faithful to the shooting subject. DIGIC DV II uses split path processing, allowing you to simultaneously capture video and stills - snap a shot any time the mood takes you.

DVD-R Dual Layer

The DC230 is compatible with a wide range of DVD formats. Support for DVD-R Dual Layer offers generous recording times and allows up to 108 minutes of video to be stored on one DL disc.

Quick Start

From Standby mode, you can be ready to start shooting instantly with a single press of the Quick Start button.

Joystick controller

Designed for easy one-handed shooting, the DC230 is operated using an intuitive Joystick controller.

Stylish and slimline

Compact and lightweight, the DC230’s contoured design provides comfortable and balanced shooting.
