The new DVD drive has reduced the product size by 15% and a bare DVD load creates a sleeker, more compact design overall. In addition, the camcorder features an SD or MMC flash card to make sharing photos even easier with other electronic devices, such as printers, digital print stations and SD-compatible PCs, TVs and DVD recor- ders. The Hitachi DZMV730A also fea- tures a dedicated photo button for ease of use as well as a Quick Start func- tionality that allows for recording to begin seconds after power-on, an improvement of more than 50% over previous DVD Camcorders.

Hitachi DZMV730A DVD camcorder - Pioneer of DVD camcorders
"Hitachi pioneered the first DVD Camcorder, anticipating the market trends and the needs of our customers," said Jeff Fochtman, product manager for Hitachi America, Ltd., Home Electronics Division. "We continue that dedication to users by constantly improving our products based on their feedback and the latest engineering innovations. Five years of refinement of DVD Camcorder engineering has allowed Hitachi to offer the Hitachi DZMV730A camcorder at an incredible value. Consumers looking for the latest in camcorder technology now have a more cost-efficient solution."

Hitachi DZMV730A DVD camcorder - Big features and Low price
The Hitachi DZMV730A offers users a 16x9 widescreen recording for DVD-R and DVD-RAM formats as well as extensive in-camera editing capabilities on DVD-RAM recordings. Using the Hitachi Disc Navigation feature, each movie clip or still photo is presented as a thumbnail image on the LCD panel, which can be selected for instant playback. The sophisticated system allows users to fade, move, divide, delete and combine clips without the need for a computer, and also create up to 99 play lists for custom playback of movie clips. For the ultimate in convenience, the user can take a DVD-RAM or DVD-R disc directly out of the Hitachi DVD camcorder and play it back in select Hitachi DVD players/recorders.

Hitachi DZMV730A DVD camcorder - High quality video
Additionally, the Hitachi DZMV730A utilizes high-quality and high-efficiency MPEG2 video recording technology. Users can select between increased recording quality or extended recording time. When using a DVD-RAM disc, the camcorder utilizes either variable bit rate (VBR) or constant bit rate (CBR) recording formats. With a double-sided DVD-RAM disc inserted, the camcorders record nearly 40 minutes of video in extra-fine mode (640x480, 3-6Mbps VBR), 60 minutes in fine mode (640x480, 6Mbps CBR) or 120 minutes in standard mode (352x480, 3Mbps CBR). A double-sided DVD-RAM disc can also hold 1,998 still images recorded at high (640x480) resolution.

Hitachi DZMV730A DVD camcorder - Record photos
Users can also record digital still photos directly to the DVD-RAM disc or to a SD or MMC removable memory card. Depending on the compression and the selected resolution, the camcorder can record 220-880 JPEG images on a 32MB memory card or 45-190 on 8MB of memory. The Hitachi DZMV730A features a 680k pixel 1/6-inch CCD and 16x optical zoom lens with 240x digital zoom capability. The unit's 2.5-inch 200K pixel color LCD monitor also works as light for "0 Lux" operation, a new feature for this product generation. Other features include an Electronic Image Stabilizer for video, a Hitachi exclusive Quick Mode simple menu for easy navigation, six-mode auto exposure, auto and manual white balance, and full auto and manual focus.
