Video Performance* (3.0)*
The Canon DC210 has most of the standard imaging specs for an entry-level camcorder. Of course, a lot of a camcorder’s performance is derived not from the parts but from the processing. That said, there’s only so much you can expect from a small chips. The DC210 has a 1/6-inch CCD with a gross pixel count of 680,000. The effective pixel count in 16:9 with the electronic image stabilization (EIS) is 450,000.
