Summary: I had no idea that Blu-Ray cameras existed for the home market that take such GREAT HD videos. Requires a mini BD-R or BD-RE disk, which are somewhat pricey, but once you see the result, you'll be amazed that such a small camera can take such highly defined videos.
Summary: Nice but expensive product; seems ur much better off buying a newer camera. Prices are low. This one is good if you need a mini bluray. I still like it, though. But I had to buy an extended battery to get any decent use out of it.
Summary: Just got my DZ-BD10HA last week and used it for the frist time Thanksgiving useing the Maxell BD-RE Bluray disc that came with the camcorder. Used it inside and in the Full Auto mode. I played it back on my Sony BluRay Player with my 50" Plasma looked like you could crall into the TV.
Summary: I am very satisfied with the purchase of Hitachi DZ-BD10HA Camcorder. It is the only HD hybrid camcorder on the market that offers recording on Blu-ray disc, hard drive and memory card. You can copy the recorded video between all three of them within the camcorder.
Summary: Just purchased this camcorder new for less than half retail. It takes great video outdoors and average video for sub $1000 camcorders indoors. Despite comments in previous review about Mac compatibility it is very easy to transfer data from the hard drive to either the DVD or directly into a Mac.
Summary: My husband and I have had this camera for a couple of months and have used it quite a bit over the holidays. The picture quality for outdoors is good for a small hand-held camera, and (as with any hand-held) the indoor image quality is a little fuzzy.
