The world’s first Hybrid DVD and Hard Disk Drive HDD Camcorder
The Hitachi DZ-HS300 combines the convenience of the DVD format – for easy playback and sharing – with the storage capacity of a Hard Disk Drive (HDD) in a revolutionary hybrid design that simplifies and speeds up the home movie making process. And at the touch of a button you can record video from the internal hard drive to DVD all directly from the camcorder – with no need for an additional PC based process. The DZ-HS300 hybrid provides unparalleled versatility and performance and in a compact design that makes the home movie making experience easier and better than ever.
Shoot for Hours – Hard Disk Drive enables up to 6 hours of recording time.
Edit in Seconds – Select all or individual scenes to record.
Share in Minutes – Burn DVD’s directly from the camcorder’s hard drive – no computer required!
Integrated 8 GB HDD
Hitachi’s own internal 8 GB hard disk drive delivers outstanding recording times and unbeatable reliability. As one of the leaders in hard drive technology, Hitachi has squeezed all this into a drive just one inch across. Simply, this means you get the capacity you need without the bulk you don’t.
Our one touch easy dubbing feature means 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 scenes with the thumbnail interface. It’s as easy as that.
Whatever the DVD format, the DZ-HS300 can probably burn it. 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.
1-Second quick start
Life doesn’t wait to be filmed. That’s why our 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.
True 16:9 widescreen
Not only do Hybrid Camcorders record in true 16:9 widescreen, their own on-board 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.
Accidents happen. That’s why the DZ-HS300 hybrid has an (ESP) extra sensory protection drop proofing system to protect the HDD. Their Zero G sensors automatically detect falls of 10 cm or more, suspending read-write activity and cushioning the hard drive for impact. The result is data loss reduced by up to 50%.
