Hitachi DZ-MV730A Camcorder (aka) Wow !

Hitachi DZ-MV730A DVD Handycam Camcorder - you know why its a wow. It burns DVD, what you see via viewfinder. It records directly onto a DVD-R.

Thats approximately $870. (hold on, im counting....).

(ok, im done.. I cant buy it,.).

[ctsy - Hitachi dvdcam ]

I have wondered if buying a Handycam would be wiser than buying a Digicam (Still). Im more amused by Still images, than boring and wierd home videos asking people to smile and "Say Something" talks. I admit, it would be of gerat use, and a treasure rather at some occassions. But for most of them, i guess a Digicam would do.

Talking about cameras, and after having landed in "The Land", I have got myself my dream camera - the Digital Rebel from Canon (Oh yeah, it is not the latest but it is one of the best out there)!

If you wanna get the camcorder, don't wait up, just get it!
