Hitachi has announced its new DZ-BD10HA high definition camcorder, able to record directly to Blu-ray disc, internal 30GB hard drive, or SDHC.
It features a seven megapixel CMOS image sensor offering full 1080p high definition recording, a dubbing feature which allows footage to be transferred directly from the hard drive or memory card to the Blu-ray disc, face detection, and image stabilisation.
The unit has launched in Japan, and will arrive in the US during September, priced at $999 (£500). UK availability and pricing to be confirmed.
