Within the electronics industry, there are some manufacturer’s that don’t get as much publicity as the “big dogs,” but yet, they have some of the nicest products available. One of these companies is Hitachi. I’m sure that everyone is well aware of this company, however, not very many people can recall when, or if, they have owned one of their products. Well, that is about to change, because they have one of the nicest DVD Camcorders available on the market today. Which, is really exciting, because we are finally going to see this manufacturer fight up against the major players. I am talking about the Hitachi DVD Camcorder with 30GB Hard Drive and Digital Still Mode, Model: DZHS500A.
This camcorder has a plethora of features, all of which are extremely usable. I think this is why I enjoy this camcorder so much, because, one of my pet-peeves is having a product that is chalked-full with features, but most of them are just there and rarely ever get used. However, you will find that with this camcorder, you will actually use all of the features that are placed within it. And this is enough to make me want to purchase it, and own no other type of camcorder.
So what exactly are the features? This camcorder is completely outfitted with every type of technology to give you beautiful results. Some of the features this camera will give you include amazing zoom capabilities. You will get 30x optical zoom and 1500x digital zoom, this is absolutely amazing. I know what many of you are thinking, if you are going to zoom that much, the camera would be moving so much that you wouldn’t be able to see the image clear. Well, this company has figured that out and made a solution to the problem. They have a features that is an electronic image stabilizer, which actually eliminates shake and vibration from the image, giving you nothing but a smooth and clear video.
This camera also has a very quick start-up time. There is only a 1 second delay from start-up to actual recording. Now, you will never miss that special moment ever again, because the second you see something happening, you can be recording. But, how exactly does this camera give you such good results? Well, they have the Hitachi Cinema Res image processing, which gives you beautifully detailed, extremely accurate and noise/distortion free images. Also, this camcorder comes with 16:9 widescreen shooting modes, which can capture wide panorama’s without the need to crop. And, of course, you can capture digital still images with the camera mode. You will also have three quality settings to choose from with the still image mode, and the top resolution goes up to 640 x 480.
There are so many features that come with this camcorder. However, the ones that I pointed out are ones that can compare and beat the leading camcorder to date. You will honestly be amazed when you see all that this camcorder has to offer you. Using a camcorder is more than just pointing and shooting, you are actually recording memories that will last you and your children a lifetime. So, once you think about your camcorder as being more than a picture-taker, but as a memory saver, you began to think twice about what you are using to film. If you are in the market for a new camera, I would definitely check this guy out.
