The Hitachi DZHS500A Hybrid Camcorder Kit records digital video and still images onto a 30GB hard drive and removable 8cm DVD-RAM, DVD-R/W and DVD+R discs. This results in images that you can play back thousands of times with virtually no degradation of picture quality. A 1/6" CCD captures video and stills in high-resolution recordings, while SD/MMC cards can store still images in 640 x 480 resolution.

Small and streamlined, the DZ-HS500A also boasts a 1-second start-up time, 16:9 recording mode, and a simplified menu system. With this camcorder, you can enjoy all the convenient benefits of both the hard drive and DVD format and top of the line features, all at entry-level prices.
