The DC40 digital camcorder gives you all the convenience and functionality of DVD technology, which includes a wide array of options for shooting and sharing your video. Only 3" (8cm) in diameter, the DC40's DVD -R/-RW discs are compatible with most DVD players and can store up to 30 minutes of video in standard mode and 60 minutes of video in long play mode. That's 120 minutes on a double-sided disc!
With the DC40's DVD technology, you no longer have to worry about mistakenly taping over a once-in-a-lifetime piece of video. Whenever your shoot, the DC40 automatically records onto a blank part of the DVD.
The DC40's DVD functionality also makes it possible for you to review your footage quickly and easily without the bother of rewind or fast-forward searching. With the camcorder's Visual Index, you can review your footage at a glance and play the selection you want. You can even select shots and arrange them into a playlist. It's like editing your video right in your camcorder!
What's more, the finalization process for these DVDs is quick and easy. It's just one more reason why you'll love recording direct to DVD with your DC40.
