Hitachi introduces smaller Blu-ray camcorder
Hitachi has announced today a new Blu-ray capable camcorder that’s about 20% smaller then it’s predecessors. It was possible to shrink the camcorder, named DZ-BD10H by further miniaturization of its 30GB HDD and the CMOS image sensor.
With an optional 32GB SDHC card users can store about four hours and 45 minutes of full-quality 1920×1080 AVCHD video, the internal 30GB HDD can also store about four hours and using a mini BD-R of 7.5GB you can store about an hour all in the same full quality.
The new CMOS sensor improves light sensitivity to five lux and allows shooting pictures at 6.2 megapixels. The camera gives live previews on its 2.7-inch swivel LCD or on an HDTV through an HDMI output with CEC support that allows the camera to automatically control certain aspects of the TV.
The BD10H upgrade appears first in Japan, where it will sell on August 6th for an approximate $1,486. The BD9H is already on sale in the US and is likely to receive the same update in the near future.

The first-generation Blu-ray camcorder they made was absolutely horrible, and so they learned from their mistakes and made the second-generation player much better. This latest one appears to be another step in the right direction, so let's see what happens...
