It's time for a new kind of camcorder Shoot for hours. Edit in minutes. Share in seconds. The original inventor and champion pioneer of the DVD camcorder, Hitachi is now the first to launch two Hybrid DVD/HDD Camcorders - an entirely new category of camcorder device that allows users to shoot longer and share faster. Combining the convenience of the DVD format - for easy sharing and archiving - with the capacity of an 8 GB (gigabyte) Hard Disk Drive (HDD), the revolutionary design simplifies and speeds up the home movie making process. Users can now shoot more footage, select required scenes stored on the HDD and burn DVDs to share with friends and family all from the camcorder - without any additional DVD burning hardware or PC connection. Integrated 8 GB HDD Our Hybrid Camcorders use Hitachi’s own 8 GB hard disk drives to deliver outstanding recording times and unbeatable reliability. As one of the leaders in hard drive technology, Hitachi has squeezed all this into a drive just one inch across. Simply, this means you get the capacity you need without the bulk you don’t. Easy dubbing Hybrid DVD/HDD Camcorder DZ-HS303E Hybrid Camcorders make creating the DVDs you want simple. Our one touch easy dubbing feature means you can quickly burn entire movies saved on the HDD to DVD. Just press the button and the camcorder will do the rest. Alternatively you can create your own director’s cut by selecting scenes with the thumbnail interface. It’s as easy as that. Multiformat+ compatibility Hybrid DVD/HDD Camcorder DZ-HS301E Whatever the DVD format, the Hybrid Camcorders probably burn it. The Multiformat+ drive will burn DVD-R, DVDRAM, DVD-RW and DVD+RW. So not only will DVDs play on your home DVD player, they are also compatible with your friends’ and family’s players too. Photo capture from DVD Why do people always blink in photographs? Fortunately that’s now history with our Hybrid Camcorders. You can now select any frame from your movies and turn it into a still digital photograph. Simply save the photo to an SD card and then print or share by email. True 16:9 widescreen Not only do Hybrid Camcorders record in true 16:9 widescreen, their own on-board 2.7" widescreen LCD screen is true 16:9 too. It means that what you see is exactly what you’ll get, no cropping, no compromise. Advanced drop-proofing Accidents happen. That's why hybrid camcorders have their own (ESP) extra sensory protection drop proofing system to protect the HDD. Their Zero G sensors automatically detect falls of 10 cm or more, suspending read-write activity and cushioning the hard drive for impact. The result is data loss reduced by up to 50%. More features Other features you’ll find as standard on our innovative new Hybrid Camcorders and range of DVD CAMs: MOVIE MASTER ensures pictures always look well defined and sounds are crystal clear by minimising distracting audio and background visual clutter. USB 2.0 connection enables you to connect to your PC with high speed data transfer and produce professional movies at home with supplied editing software. The SD card reader slot allows you to save photos straight onto an SD memory card for easy processing. Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS) is an advanced feature that will ensure recording results are smooth and steady. 1-Second quick start Life doesn’t wait to be filmed. That’s why our Hybrid Camcorders feature 1-Second Quick Start from standby – the fastest start-up time on the market. It means you need never worry about missing the moment again. The world’s only DVD and HDD camcorders. Convenience and capacity combined. Shoot longer Whatever you’re filming, chances are that the disc will run out at just the wrong moment. But with the Hybrid Camcorders’ built-in 8 GB hard disk drives, you can now record up to 6 hours without stopping and without changing discs.
