Unboxing the Hitachi DZ-BD7HA Blu-ray Camcorder

We can't help but flaunt the world's first Blu-ray Disc camcorder that arrived in our office today. Say hello to the Hitachi DZ-BD7HA Blu-ray Disc camcorder, their flagship model that squeezes in an additional 30 GB hard drive. We've only had time to unbox it and take in a short moment of joy knowing this could be a significant change in consumer video formats. Or, it could just fade away like any other not-so-much-adopted technology. But, we won't let that destroy our moment for now. Check back in with us as we'll be taking more snapshots and running the DZ-BD7HA Blu-ray Disc camcorder through its paces next week. Our full review will be published to our website and in the January issue which will reach newsstands and mailboxes weeks before the format war ends according to that Panasonic Exec at CEATEC.

  1. Wow, you’ve had this camcorder for two weeks now and still no feedback or early preview comments. This world moves a lot faster than that! Time Compression, folks!

  2. Would love to see some pics and video from the camera . . . is there any plans to upload anything?
