Default I Would Like To See Highend Blu-ray Camcorders

I hope that there will also be some high-end 1080P BLU-RAY camcorders that have 3 CCD’s instead of the lower quality 1 CCD. The first 3 CCD pro BLU-RAY camcorder might cost $3,000-$5,000+.
Here is another article on the Hitachi BLU-RAY camcorder.

Default World's first Blu-ray camcorder (product image)



The single-drive DZ-BD70A comes equipped with a 5.3 MP CMOS sensor, and 10x zoom, 12-element aspherical lens system, and has a graduated ND (neutral density) filter. Videophiles and enthusiasts can record up to one-hour of 1,920 x 1,080 content to an 8cm single-sided Blu-ray disc (BD-R and BD-RE), or two hours in 1,440 x 1,080 resolution. Standard definition video can also be recorded onto “regular” DVD discs (DVD-R/-RW/-RAM).

What, no mention of its sibling?:



BD + 30GB HDD - Can hold 4 hours of 1,920x1,080 and 8 hours of 1440x1080
Can write from the HDD to the BD-R/RE directly
Can transcode HD from the drive to SD on a DVD-R/RW for HD and BD challenged family and friends.

Am I the only one that sees that as DAMN COOL?

Default Hitachi releases BR camcorder




http://www.digitalcamcordernews.com/...ders#more-1012

Today just seems to be the day for camcorder announcements, and Hitachi has joined the club by officially unveiling the world’s first Blu-Ray camcorders. The Hitachi DZ-BD70 will record to mini Blu-Ray disks and the Hitachi DZ-BD7H will record to both hard drive and Blu-Ray disk, which is what I would call the ultimate hybrid camcorder.

Both the Hitachi DZ-BD70 and DZ-BD7H are capable of recording one hour of Full HD (1920×1080) footage to Blu-Ray Disc (BD). BDs have 5 times the capacity of regular 8cm MiniDVDs and can be played in any compatible Blu-Ray player.

Both camcorders also feature a 1/2.8″, 5.3 megapixel CMOS sensor with an effective 2.07 megapixels for video and 4.32 megapixels for stills. You will also get a 10x optical zoom (electronically stabilized) and 2.7″ widescreen LCD on the Hitachi DZ-BD70 and DZ-BD7H.

Video on the Hitachi DZ-BD70 and DZ-BD7H can be output via HDMI, S-video or USB 2.0. Thankfully, Hitachi has also included a microphone jack on both camcorders.

The hybrid Hitachi DZ-BD7H also includes a dubbing capability, which allows you to transfer your video from the 30GB hard drive to Blu-Ray disc at 2x speed. This lets you do some basic in-camcorder editing without the need for a computer. You can even downconvert to standard definition and dub to regular DVD-R or DVD-RW media for playback in that “old” DVD player.

If you are using the HDD or a BD-RE disc (re-writable version of a BD disc), Hitachi says you can do basic editing functions such as split, delete and connect right inside the camcorder, no PC required. You can also create and rearrange playlists of your clips.

The Hitachi DZ-BD70 and DZ-BD7H will begin selling in Japan later this month, and will be available in overseas markets starting in October. Right now, no price point has been announced.

Hitachi Unveils 1st Blu-ray Camcorder
The company says it will be available in U.S. in October.
By Swanni

Washington, D.C. (August 2, 2007) -- Hitachi today announced the world's first Blu-ray camcorder which will record one hour of 1080p HD video on a Blu-ray disc.

The company said two Blu-ray camcorders will launch in Japan on August 30 and then worldwide in October.

The Hitachi DZ-BD7H has a Blu-ray drive and 30GB build-in hard disc drive which can record four hours of 1920 x 1080 high-def video or up to eight hours of 1440 x 1080 HD video. The camcorder, which will be roughly $1,600, can also record HD video on a 8cm Blu-ray disc.

The second Blu-ray camcorder, the DZ-BD70, is a single drive camcorder which can record approximately one hour of 1920 x 1080 HD video or two hours of 1440x1080 high-def video. The price will be roughly $1,350.

Hitachi says the camcorders capture and record high-def video using a new HD, 5.3 mega pixel image sensor. They will be compatible with any Blu-ray player including the Play Station 3 and will include HDMI connections so they can be connected directly to a high-def set.

The two camcorders were unveiled today in Japan.

Guess it won't be too long before the mods merge threads...

This is good news! I'll have to wait for the prices to drop some more before I make the plunge. For my limited video recordings, I can't justify $1,600!!
