Hitachi DZ-BD7 review

 

Hitachi brought the UK its first DVD and ‘hybrid' cams. But it's still innovating...

30GB Hard drive ; Easy to use

Discs weren't recognised by Blu-Ray player ; Quite large and heavy

The BD7 has some great ideas but, as it’s the first of its kind on the market, there are still problems that need ironing out. A great first attempt, though!

Hitachi DZ-BD7HE review

 

The Hitachi DZ-BD7HE is an HD camcorder with Blu-ray recording capabilities.

It's got an interesting feature set, and you can't fault the storage options, but we weren't fully convinced by the Hitachi DZ-BD7HE's recording quality. And at £850, we would expect to be.

Hitachi DZ-BD7HE

 

Now that HD DVD has drawn its last gasp and the format war is over, Hitachi must be breathing a sigh of relief, having just introduced a pair of Blu-ray supporting HD camcorders, of which the 5.3mp CMOS sensor DZ-BD7HE is one. Due to the fact that it...

Records to 30GB hard drive, removable Blu-ray disc, DVD or SD card ; both high- and standard-definition capture

Bulkier than hard drive or SD-only devices, discs easily corrupted, operation overcomplicated and fiddly, sluggish to focus and noisy in low light

Unfortunately, the Hitachi also delivers one of the noisiest low light performances here, and its lens provides a narrower field of view than the others. While colour is vivid, it's too warm to match reality, and the audio is a little hollow sounding.

Whether you're in the market for a new camcorder for that trip of a lifetime or are a newcomer thinking of getting into video blogging, there's plenty of choice when it comes to how (and in which format) you record your home movies.
