Product Specifications

The NV DS55EG is the worlds smallest Palm-style digital video camera. It has all the features of the NV DS35 as well as the new MultiMediaCard for the storage of digital still images. With the NV DS55EG you are ready to step into a new age of multimedia. Panasonic's digital video cameras, known for being the smallest in the world, have broken their own record and become even smaller and slimmer. The Super-Flat LCD monitor allows for the ideal slim design. The result is an ergonomical, compact body and a comfortable hold that enables filming stability in any situation. The new technology of the MultiMediaCard allows you to capture the image with the digital video camera and save it directly to the MultiMediaCard. Multi-Screen mode displays 9-images on screen at the same time. Picture-in-Picture displays a small picture within the normal moving picture.
