Summary: I have used this same model of camera at work and wanted one of my own. It is a great budget camera and has a fair number of features for the price. It produces a good standard definition picture and video clips are easy to download from the camera's hard drive. The lightweight and compact design allow you to carry it anywhere.
Summary: Chrome exterion, compact and does the job, I like the 6 hours recording time on the built in hdd.The digital zooming capability is great, the dubbing to dvd's is easy. It can be used as a camera for still pictures.
Summary: Never had a video camera before. This one is easy to use or at least figure out how to use. I like the internal HDD and the option to record directly on mini-dvd's. The sellers handling was outstanding.
Cool features average image (even at highest resolution

Summary: The camara is awesome looking and has a ton of features. The problem is the quality of the image. It was basically average in decent light and below average in dark light. The ability to record on the 8 Gig drive and then burn right to DVD is unbelievable convenience. If your looking for a entry level HD/DVD camera definitely take a look. If your looking for high-end great looking recording, go for the Everios or other models.
Summary: IT WAS A SURPRISE THIS CAMERA. WORKS WITH HARD DRIVE, WITH MINI DV AND MEMORY CARD. IT S REALLY SIMPLE TO USE AND VERY POWERFULL. I HAVE MANY CAMERAS, LIKE JVC 60 GIGA, SONY MINI DV, YASHICA AND PENTAX, DIGITAL AND NOT BUT THIS CAMERA IS REALLY THE BEST.
Good Product- emphasis on Good, Not Excellent, Not Avg.

Summary: This product has some excellent features, particularly the hybrid mode. Though I haven't used the mini-DVD yet, I like the idea of being able to make one for friends on the fly. I'm hooked on the Hard Drive function. Be prepared to suck up some hard drive space on your PC, though. Works really well outside and reasonably well inside. Think LIGHTING (like all camcorders).
Summary: The DZ HS300A is just what I needed. The HDD/DVD combo keeps me from having to buy many dvd's and with the quick recall system you can watch what you've recorded without any hastle. I recommend this camera if you're a point and shoot camera man as, in the long run, it will save you money.
