Capture family memories in magnificent 1920 x 1080 resolution with the Hitachi DZ-BD7HE Blu-ray hybrid camcorder. You can record up to 4 hours of high definition video onto the integral 30GB hard drive, and then connect the camera to a Full HD TV and watch your movies come to life with incredible depth and image quality.
But thats only the beginning. With this marvel you can actually dub your blockbuster straight from the hard drive onto an 8cm recordable Blu-ray disc at the touch of a button. And all without a PC in sight! And if your friends havent invested in a high definition Blu-ray player yet, you can record your home video onto an 8cm conventional DVD in standard definition, to share with just about everyone.
You can even let the camcorder guide you, with an Interactive Guide which helps you get the full benefits of the DZ-BD7HE, without having to get out the instruction book.
