DZ-HS303SW / Camcorder

This is the world’s first hybrid camcorder that allows you to record on both DVD and hard disk.
The camcorder enables you to record on the hard disk for extended periods and copy onto a DVD, without using other equipment.
Although the camcorder incorporates a hard disk, it is similar in size to regular DVD camcorders thanks to the efforts for size reduction.
The hard disk is located under the hand grip and creates an ergonomic profile, which makes the camcorder more comfortable to hold.
The surface of the main body is treated with a spattering process to enhance the high-gross black finish.
