HDD and DVD Hybrid
Combining the convenience of the DVD format-- for easy sharing and archiving-- with the flexible capacity of an internal Hard Disk Drive (HDD), the revolutionary design simplifies and speeds up the home-moviemaking process.

Easy Dubbing
Hybrid camcorders make creating the DVDs you want simple. Our 1-touch easy dubbing feature mean 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 on the highlight scenes. It's as easy as that.

Advanced Drop-proofing
Accidents happen. That's why our Hybrid camcorders have their own (ESP) extra sensory protection drop-proofing system to protect the HDD. Their Zero G sensors automatically detect falls, suspending read/write activity and cushioning the hard drive for impact.

USB 2.0 Connectivity
USB 2.0 connection enables you to connect to your computer with high-speed data transfer and produce professional movies at home with supplied editing software.

Multiformat+ Compatibility
The Multiformat+ drive will burn DVD-R, DVD-RAM, 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. In addition to DVD, SD cards can be used to store digital still photos.

True 16:9 Widescreen
Not only can Hitachi camcorders record in true 16:9 widescreen-the onboard 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.

Cinema Res
Cinema Res image processing ensures video and pictures always appear detailed and accurate. By reducing noise and increasing sharpness, your home movies will look better than ever.

Photo Capture from DVD
Why do people always blink in photographs? Fortunately, that's now history with Hitachi camcorders. You can now select any frame from your movies and turn it into a digital still photograph. Simply save the photo to an SD card and then print or share by e-mail.

1-Second Quick Start
Life doesn't wait to be filmed. That's why Hitachi 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.
