Hitachi Camcorder

ERE 13, Amazon
11 March 2009
  • Summary: This is a terrible product. You can barely film indoors because the lens limits wide angle filming. If you can't get at least 15 feet from your intented subject, you will be limited to filming their head. ALERT*** You can only use Maxell discs!!! Other disc might intially work, but will fail when you try to format them. This is not mentioned anywhere in the manual. Strangely enough Hitachi owns Mawell. Hmmmmmm???

Stay away from HItachi DVDCams

Peachy "egpeach", Amazon

  • Summary: I own a previous model Hitachi DVDCam. I have had several of my DVD's become corrupt and unreadable after I had recorded (and viewed) several videos on them. I called Hitachi and after a LONG phone call was basically told that I had bad luck and they were sorry. It is a porblem with the DVD itself and they do not stand behind the DVD's (because they are from a different manufacturer).

Never been more disappointed in my life

Wyndie Prestwich "nan3boys", Amazon
28 April 2007
  • Summary: I bought this item as a gift for my husband. After 2 1/2 months, we thought we finally had it figured out. But just this evening, it erased the latest disc when my husband plugged it in to try and finalize it. It just displayed "Disc Access" for several minutes before shutting itself off. When he was finally able to get it to come back up, everything on it (our sons' track finals and talent show) was gone.

Disk errors = No video of daughter first birthday

M. Sanders, Amazon
28 April 2007
  • Summary: After 4 months of light use the Hitachi DZ-GX3200A (a camera that appears to share many components with the 3300) it decided to start giving disk errors, resulting in the loss of all video of my daughters first birthday. It will format and start to use the disks, only to show a disk error sometime during the recording. I have be unable to recover ANY data from the disks after an error occurs.
