Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The UltraVision DZGX5020A DVD camcorder, with support for DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-RAM and DVD+RW formats, is ideal for easily archiving important moments and memories, such as weddings and graduations, to send to friends and family, or play back on most home DVD players. The Photo Frame Grab feature lets users easily capture any video frame as a still image.

DZGX5020A Highlights

Multiformat+ compatibility The Multiformat+ drive will burn DVD-R, DVD-RAM, DVD-RW and DVD+RW. So not only will DVDs play on your home DVD player-they are also compatible with your friends’ and family’s players, too. In addition to DVD, SD cards can be used to store digital still photos.

True 16:9 widescreen Not only can Hitachi camcorders record in true 16:9 widescreen, but the on-board 2.7-inch widescreen LCD screen is true 16:9, too. It means that what you see is exactly what you’ll get--no cropping, no compromise.

Cinema Res Cinema Res image processing ensures video and pictures always appear detailed and accurate. By reducing "noise" and increasing sharpness, your home movies will look better than ever.

Photo capture from DVD Why do people always blink in photographs? Fortunately, that’s now history with Hitachi camcorders. You can now select any frame from your movies and turn it into a digital still photograph. Simply save the photo to an SD card and then print or share by e-mail.

1-second quick start Life doesn’t wait to be filmed. That’s why Hitachi camcorders feature 1-second quick start from standby--the fastest start-up time on the market. It means you need never worry about missing the moment again.

Shoots pretty well indoors.
Tracy A. Riegel
Constant issues with "formatting disks" -Off button is not locked and often moves to "on" while transporting, when you take it out for use, battery is dead.

If you loose that cord like I have - you're screwed, you can't any movies out of the camera - the discs won't play in any dvd player and you are just SOL.

I am 13 and I got this camera as a gift. it is awesome and is compatable with many disks including maxwell disks and Sony Handycam disks (those are the ones I use.)
Shoots pretty well indoors.
No manual reading required, but I did so to find out the features.
It also can take pictures and capture photos from a video.
I recommend Hitachi Camcorder Accessory Kit 2 for Hitachi DVD Camcorders. The bag fits the camera, batteries, disks, cords, and the manual nicely. I bought this because of the battery (a couple of hours life). Plus you get 3 Maxwell DVD-R disks (disk cases included)

Overall, this is a great buy for beginners AND pros.

I have the GX5020 and have found it to shoot good footage both inside and outdoors. The quality of the camera is good with intuitive controls, no manual reading required!

The only shortfall is the battery provided does not last more than around 40 minutes, so a long life battery is a wise investment.

Small, quick and easy to use! I love the ability to save a picture to an SD card from any frame. We bought digital frames for the grandma's this Christmas and I was able to save pictures from the camcorder directly to the SD cards for use with their frames - I didn't need the camera at all. And I have the best pictures because I was able to pick the perfect frame to make a picture! That perfect smile that I would have missed with my 2 second delay camera - I got it this year using the camcorder. There was no learning process and it is very user friendly. The only downside so far is that the lenscap doesn't stay secure when clipped on and I tend to zoom way too fast! This is my first camcorder and I am very pleased.

Fantastic Product!
It takes fantastic pictures and does not easily create shaky images.
All you need is a simple DVD ripping software and you can upload directly to youtube.

The quality is superior to most HDD camcorders out there and well worth the purchase.
Very pleased!

I got thic DVD cam as a gift and am very unhappy about it. I wish I could return it. It has multiple problems like reading disks, finalizing disks, poor picture quality and so on. I would not reccomend it.
