The cheapest and chunkiest camcorder on test, the Pocket DV5 combines a traditional design with a strong set of digital features.

Product Specifications

An ergonomic and streamlined exterior, distinguishes the NISIS Pocket DV5 camera from the typical and standard design offered by other camera manufacturers. The stylish design provides maximum comfort in handling without sacrificing ease-of-use while using the camera's many functions using only one hand. The NISIS Pocket DV5 Digital Video Camera is a multi-function DV Camera that is ready to capture video recordings and take still photographs, whenever you want. It utilizes the latest, industry standard, MPEG-4 encoding technology so you can record longer, and higher resolution video clips, than was achievable with earlier DV Cameras. It has a high-resolution 3.1 Mega pixel CMOS color sensor, and employs a built-in software interpolation technique to produce still photographs of up to 4.1 Mega pixel resolution. To enable you to record longer videos and take larger numbers of still photographs, the DV5 can accept additional Compact Flash memory cards of up to 512 MB! The DV5 has a 1.8" color TFT LCD screen which is larger than any previous NISIS DV Camera, and can be tilted through angles of up to 225
