Summary: I bought this for a homestay teacher exchange program to Japan, sponsored by Hitachi. As part of the agreement, we had to purchase a Hitachi digital camera/camcorder. Some of the technology was "awkward" and made it difficult to edit and produce a final product once I returned.
Summary: the prducto excellent when used in very good this pewter physical functioning and the product was very good paratodo foulbrood pressures achieved in the unicique recordings do not like the resolution of the camera but this excellent video
Summary: I was in need of a DVD based camcorder and with most camcorders on the market today being flash memory or HDD based it came down to this unit or the Sony Handycam. The price was better on this unit with similar features to the Sony. The unit appears to be a refurb'ed unit.
Summary: Fantastic Product! It takes fantastic pictures and does not easily create shaky images. All you need is a simple DVD ripping software and you can upload directly to youtube. The quality is superior to most HDD camcorders out there and well worth the purchase. Very pleased!
Summary: The 5020A is a first timer camera that is going to make home videos of the usual travels, family outings and such. It's actually fairly easy to use and you can use a variety of recordable mini-dvd's.
Summary: Have had this camera for over 2 years. Takes great pictures if you use the best quality setting. The only problem there is that, at least with the disks I have, there are only 19 minutes per disk at this quality.
