'It's relatively big, weighing 1 pound, 5.4 ounces, though it fits into a large, loose jacket pocket'
'Poor audio control.'
'The cover is connected via two feeble plastic bands that could snap at the drop of a hat if moderate tension is applied.'
'the lack of a real focus ring is one of the main reasons this camcorder might not be a consideration for more serious videographers.'
'poorly located microphone.'
'It's a textured plastic that feels a bit like sandpaper – we're not huge fans.'
'Video quality is very good.'
'sound quality is subpar'
'slightly awkward controls'
'Pricey for a standard-def camcorder'
'port cover is hard to open unless you access it with the LCD screen open, and the thin plastic strips that secure it to the body are highly susceptible to snapping off.'
'The DC50 is also easy to use, with the Joystick exposure control, Quick Start, and Horizontal Marker -- all in a stylish and easy-to-use design.'
