Hi Begus,

You will have to do a little research on your own to decide what is right for you. You may be able to get by with a simple adapter, or you may wish to purchase a camcorder designed for use in Europe. Many better hotels have begun offering rooms that have both European outlets and American outlets, so a lot depends on where you go. Because of the difference in voltage, you may require a transformer and/or converter to make the device functional. Also, be aware that because of the difference in frequency, some devices may run slowly in Europe if designed to work with American electricity standards.

So, the things to look for are your specific product ratings of voltage, frequency (measured in Hertz), and what type of plug is on the end of the cord. Then contact the place you will be staying to see if there is a way to match the camcorder.

Thank you,
Jason,

POWER VOLTAGE


No. To work with 220V~240v; the device need a step down transformer to be connected in between line and device. The transformer [voltage converter] should be used, otherwise; the unit will get damaged. The step down transformer adaptors can be bought locally. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Will not turn on with good battery.


Can you not detach the lead to the charger unit, and plug that directly to the camcorder, to see if its the actual camcorder at fault ?
Near the camcorders power socket, you should see a small picture telling you what power the cam uses - usually around 7 volts, centre positive connection jack plug, at around 900mAh. As long as you get the voltage close, and have enough amps behind it, it will still work safely.
Camcorders are rarely fussy about the exact voltage, but you should never go above 9 volts unless its needs more. Most take the internal power down to 5 volts inside anyway.
The batteries do have a tiny non-replaceable internal fuse, triggered by voltage spikes or overheating, and if that goes, it usually means buying a new battery :(
Batteries can go at any time from the very first second they are used. I've bought many, and had a few that didn't last 2 months from brand new. One high-end type lasted over 9 hours on its very first charge :) and then never worked again after that :(

Require a instruction manual for a Canon DC21, in English. Regards Howard


The DC21 was not marketed in the United States, and I cannot locate an English version of the manual on Canon Europa's site (although the manual is available in six other languages there). But the DC21 appears to be quite similar in specification to the DC22 that was marketed in the US. Here is a link to the DC22 manual. Understand that the specifications for the NTSC model may be different than the PAL model, but operating procedures should be very much the same.

Video transfer from Canon Optura 10 to Apple iMac


It should work well with Apple iMovie that came with your mac. There is a new version (imovie 09) that is said to be a major improvement over imovie 08 (the version that likely came with your computer). It is part of the iLife suite of multimedia Apple software. Available for $79 from the apple store. Here's a link to the store page. Buy now

LOST MY CHARGER


You can either buy one from CANON directly, which is expensive, or you can look on ebay for a generic device, which is risky (you need one with the correct voltage etc etc).

Charging battaries oversea.


The battery chargers that are included with JVC camcorders sold in the U.S. are designed to operate on power from 110 to 240 Volts at 50 or 60 Cycles AC. All that is needed to use the battery charger overseas is a plug adapter to connect into a foreign electrical outlet. These are generally available from a store which carries electrical supplies.
