Hitachi DZ-BD10HA review


Few things work better than convenience for getting consumers to adopt a new technology, and in the case of camcorders, convenience means supporting your preferred format. By that definition, Hitachi's DZ-BD10HA Blu-ray camcorder is certainly...

Decent video quality; above average photo quality; multiple recording formats; simple operation.

Slow performance; generic-looking design; low on other features.

The Hitachi DZ-BD10HA is the most hybrid of hybrid camcorders and still manages good video and photo quality. But it's also slow and expensive.

Review: Hitachi DZ-BD10HA


Canon Vixia HV30 $999 A top-notch miniDV cam popular with the pro crowd for its sharp HD image and usability. Sorry guys, Hitachi's model is...

Jack-of-all-formats camcorder with tasty video output. 6.2-megapixel stills. Simple video-transfer features

Control-center layout needs more thought. Mac support nonexistent. Heavy

Product Specifications

The DZ-BD10HA hybrid camcorder offers 3 formats to record Full HD videos to. A newly developed 7-megapixel CMOS image sensor captures rich and vibrant videos and stills in Full HD (1920 x 1080) High Definition. The built-in SDHC card slot provides additional flexibility by allowing for Full HD video and still recordings. The new DZ-BD10HA also offers a dubbing function that allows Full HD video to be transferred with the single push of a button from either the HDD or SDHC card to the BD drive, all within the camcorder, without having to connect to a PC. Editing functions such as split, splice, delete, merge, and transitions can also be performed within the camcorder before dubbing for additional functionality. The transcoding feature allows for the camcorder to transfer Full HD videos off the HDD or SDHC card to standard definition DVD discs for the sharing of videos with friends and family who may not own a Blu-ray player yet. Another new feature added to camcorder is face detection, which automatically detects and focuses on faces to provide the most true to life color accuracy and clarity. Additionally, Hitachi has developed a compact, low power consumption, quiet and highly reliable 8cm BD/DVD drive, which results in a 20% reduction in overall volume.
