Product Specifications

Palmcorder PV-DV203 is a 3 in 1 camcorder that features the benefits of a digital camcorder, digital still camera and web cam camera. The PV-DV203 is fully PC compatible, with i.LINK IEEE 13941 and USB computer interfaces. This enables video and still images to be easily downloaded to a desktop or laptop computer, where they can be saved, edited, digitally manipulated or added to a Web site or e-mailed. It also incorporates a removable SD Memory card for quick and secure storage and transference of digital still images. Using the MPEG-4 Movie Messenger system, video captured by the PV-DV203 can also be downloaded and emailed to friends and family.The PV-DV203 can also serve as a Web camera for video conferencing with friends and relatives, or even for simple Internet-based surveillance when you're away from home. As a digital still camera the PV-DV203 can also record still pictures with exceptional clarity. Panasonic's Progressive PhotoShot captures image data and temporarily stores it in two separate field memories. The images in the two memories are then combined with no time lag, resulting in pictures with 1.5 times the resolution of standard-recorded stills.In addition to this wealth of features, the PV-DV203 also features a color viewfinder, Dual Digital Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) that compensates for camcorder jitter, both during recording and playback of previously recorded video, and a digital LED light for low power consumption and safety.
