We’re fairly sure this is the first of its kind: a digital camera that comes with a built in hard disk drive. The 3.1-megapixel camera is from Vivitar and comes with the catchy name of DVR390H. The camera itself is actually an attachment that plugs into the hard drive along with a flash. The hard drive provides the 3.6-inch LCD preview screen for taking shots and also for creating mini slideshows.
The device will also record MPEG4 video, playback MP3 and MP4 files, act as a TV/video recorder and act as a digital voice recorder. All this crazy converging, however, will suck the life out of the batteries, leaving you with just 3-4 hours of power. It sounds like it’s only coming out in Australia for the time being, but we’ll let you know if we hear any different.
