The HamiltonBuhl High-Definition Camcorder features a 5MP image sensor capable of recording 1280 x 720p HD video, as well as capturing interpolated 11MP digital stills. Since it uses AVI (h.264) format for recording, the camera is able to shoot more with less memory. The HDV5200 is equipped with 64MB of internal flash memory, but it also has an SD/SDHC card slot capable of handling up to 16GB SD/SDHC cards (sold separately).
The HDV5200 is equipped with a 2.5" LCD display panel as well. This display can be used as your recording viewfinder or as a display for instant playback. After you return home, you can upload your footage onto YouTube or Facebook using the camera's Mini-USB 2.0 port and included USB cable. If you want to share your footage and stills with friends and family, you can use the camcorder's HDMI output and included cable to connect directly to your TV. This way you can view your footage in up to 720p HD quality while enjoying crystal clear audio.
Besides just capturing video and stills, the camera can also load and store MP3 files so you can use it like an MP3 player and enjoy your favorite songs. Plus, the device is designed for students, so it's built to last with its rugged construction. For helping you get the most out of the camcorder, HamiltonBuhl has equipped the camera with white balance, auto/manual exposure settings, a light for shooting in low light, and a self-timer with a ten-second delay. If that's not enough, you can also use the HDV5200 as a PC webcam or a USB mass storage disk. It has a built-in speaker and microphone for video-chatting online with friends and family, thanks to the integrated Mini-USB port.
