The Canon DC95 digital camcorder captures video footage and saves it directly to a DVD (Digital Versatile Disc). The DC95 captures video in both widescreen (16:9) and full screen (4:3) format and is capable of recording still images up to 530,000 pixels in size. Once you have set up your camcorder, you might need to know about its basic operations. You'll want to know your camcorder well before relying on it to capture special events like weddings, birthdays and sporting events.
