Hitachi DZ-GX20A Review

 

Overall, the DZ-GX20A is rather button-free and is not intimidating.

At well over $700 ($799), the Hitachi DZ-GX20A is hard to recommend. With uneven video quality, poorer than poor stills and a manual only the authors could love, this one is a loser. That said, it makes my job simple: Just don’t buy it.

Image quality

 

Hitachi DZGX20A

Solid low-light video quality; in-camera editing; compact and lightweight; impressive battery life.

DVD-RAM not supported by most set-top DVD players; touch-sensitive controls difficult to use; stills often blurry.

The Hitachi DZGX20A is a reasonable contender for your first DVD camcorder.

Hitachi DZGX20A

 

Straight-to-DVD camcorder captures strong video in good light but suffers from several small drawbacks.

You can conveniently record straight to DVD with the Hitachi DZGX20A and then watch your video in a set-top DVD player. But this camera doesn't match Sony's DCR-DVD403 DVD Handycam for overall quality.

Geared towards the shooter looking for an all-around solution, the Hitachi DZ-GX20A has powerful optics and intriguing in-camera editing features. This camcorder has a lot to offer beginner and intermediate shooters with its versatility and stunning image

Great image quality Mic input USB connector

EIS jerks during pans Blocky DVD compression at Low Quality Settings Mediocre low light performance

Overall, the DZ-GX20A has one of the prettiest pictures from a DVD camcorder. It also has some nice in-camera editing options
