Pros: For the price of this camera - the quality was outstanding - having both DVD, Hard drive AND memory card to record on gives a huge selection of media to use -saw similar version of the camera for $600 retail
Cons: the Mini Dvd's are a pain in the rear to use - the format doesnt just pop into a dvd drive or player like i thought
Summary: A good camera. Purchased a hitachi bundle 2 that included the case, dvds, extra long life battery, etc. Fortunately Vista Ultimate has some decent dvd writing software so transfer to pc is my preferred way before burning to dvd (if possible). Does a great job recording video.
Summary: I have been searching for a while for a decent camcorder that wasn't tape. I found this in stores and fell in love with it right away. I couldn't believe how much money I saved by buying this on NewEgg! The stores were wanting $599, when NewEgg was asking only $424!
Pros: Small size, great combo (HDD & DVD), easy to learn, and the PRICE!!!
Cons: This is sort of a Con, but it doesn't have a light, so if your in a dim lit area there isn't a way to enhance the subject your filming. Unless of course you turn on more lights. ;)
Summary: fun camera to have. It's especially nice b/c of the HDD feature it has. No hassle with tapes. Just turn the knob to HDD and press record. Simple. Not to metion it's an eye catcher when going on spring break. Girls love the camera!!! Anyways 5 eggs from even with the cons.
Pros: Great LCD Screen Quality. Audio when recording is great. Zoom feature is intense!!! Picture quality is superb.
Cons: When taking a picture you have to be ABSOLUTELY STEADY...or else your pictures turn out HORRIBLE. The software that comes with the camera isn't exactly windows movie maker or Adobe quality. Forget about the NOVEL Hitachi included to explain the camera. Just figure it out on your own.
Conclusion: muy buen producto derivado que grabas todo al disco duro del dvd y despues si gustas lo borras desde la videocamara y despues lo pasas a un minidvd o a la pc. la calidad es muy buena de grabacion
