Hitachi DZBD7HA

The Hitachi DZBD7HA, the company’s new flagship consumer model, is the world’s first Full HD3 format hybrid camcorder. This high-end hybrid camcorder features full High Definition video recording capability at a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, a built-in 30 gigabyte hard drive as well as an 8 centimeter Blu-ray Disc/DVD drive. The disc drive is a compact and energy efficient unit developed by Hitachi and is compatible with BD-RE/-R and DVD-RAM/-RW/-R media.

The DZBD7HA uses a 5.3 megapixel CMOS sensor that can capture video at 1920 x 1080 pixels at 60 Hz and still images at resolutions up to 2400 x 1800 pixels. It offers a 2.7 inch widescreen LCD viewfinder and an SD memory card slot for saving still images. The DZBD7HA has a quick start-up time of 1 second (stand by mode to recording mode).

Video Recording

With the camcorder’s 30 gigabyte hard drive, the user can record 4 hours of video in HX mode (1920 x 1080 pixels) or up to 8 hours in HS mode (1440 x 1080 pixels). Each BD-RE/-R disc, meanwhile, can record 1 hour videos in HX mode or up to 2 hours in HS mode. For DVD-R/-RW/-RAM discs, the user can record up to 30 minutes of videos in a 720 x 480 pixel resolution.

The DZBD7HA also offers in-camera editing of movies (split, delete, connect, etc.) and adds a 1-touch dubbing feature. With a single press of a button, the user can transfer movies on the hard drive to a Blu-ray disc or DVD. High definition recordings will also be transcoded when transferring to standard definition DVD media.

Still Image Recording

In addition to the 5.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, the camcorder also features an exclusive high resolution LSI image processing chip which improves still image quality by reducing noise and enhancing colors.

The DZBD7HA’s Photo Capture feature allows the user to convert a frame from a movie into a 2.07 megapixel still image and save it onto an SD memory card.
