Hitachi Embracing Blu-ray to it's Fullest

Hitachi has just released it's new DZ-BDH9 model camcorder which features a blu-ray drive and a 60GB HDD, an improved 5.3megapixel CMOS sensor. It still captures an incredible 1920 x 1080 MPEG-4/H.264 video to the internal HDD or 8cm, 7.5GB blu-ray disc. It aslo features an bright, colorful 2.7" LCD screen and the standard HDMI and USB 2.0 ports. Apparently, not too many consumers were pleased with their first generation model, but they have come back, ready to show the world what they got. Hitting the Japanese market on February 12th at $1,700, this might not be something to just purchase right off of the shelf.
