Multi-Format Recording - DVD-RAM, DVD-R or DVD-RW - The Choice is Yours!
Our DVD Palmcorder ® Camcorders can record on DVD-R, DVD-RW and even DVD-RAM discs. Record over and over again on DVD-RAM discs or record something just once on DVD-R discs. You can choose whichever type of disc works best with your DVD player or recorder.

Easy Shooting, Quick Editing and Convenient Viewing

* No Stress, No Mistakes. Our DVD Palmcorder camcorder automatically finds a blank section on the disc for recording. You never need to search for blank disc space and there's no need to worry about recording over a previous recording.
* Quick, Easy Editing. The index screen makes it easy to search for a particular scene. You can view, delete and edit quickly and easily.
* Easy, Direct Networking. When you finish shooting, just take the disc from the DVD Palmcorder camcorder and slip it right into your DVD player or recorder. There's no need to connect any cables and you can start viewing right away.

Powerful 30x Optical Zoom
Enjoy remarkable 30x zoom magnification in a camera that fits comfortably and securely in one hand. The lens also features low distortion and since the zoom is optical, it captures both moving and still pictures with exquisite beauty.

MPEG2 Engine Captures Complex Motion with Precision
Our MPEG2 engine is a wide-range, high-precision search engine that produces smooth, beautiful moving pictures. Because it records the differences in each frame, it can render fast, complex motions - like those of children in the thick of the action - with exceptional precision. The MPEG2 engine also uses the Variable Bit Rate system that we adopted for our high-end DIGA DVD recorder. LP (Long Play) mode now offers nearly twice the resolution of previous MPEG2 recording video cameras, giving you the best possible resolution at the longest recording times.

Direct Mode Dial for a Quick Easy Switch from Shooting to Playback
Easy-to-understand icons indicate the modes for both disc and card recording and playback. Just rotate the dial with your fingertip to select the icon that corresponds to the mode you want.

Simple, One-Hand Operation
The joystick makes the camera much easier to use, letting you control all basic operations with one hand. As you shoot, just watch the image in the monitor and follow the instruction guide. You can handle a number of operations quickly and easily, without even taking your eye off the subject.
