Panasonic VDR-M53 DIGA DVD Palmcorder MultiCam Camcorder with 24x Optical Zoom

Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty

DVD Recording is Easy, Convenient and Fun
The VDR series Camcorders record directly onto DVD-RAM or DVD-R discs for multiple recording and playback options. With DVD-RAM discs you never have to worry about erasing a recording or finding blank space. You can just start recording. DVD-RAM discs can also be played back in compatible devices, like select computers and home DVD-players. DVD-R discs are strong and versatile, and can also be played back on most home DVD players.

Rotating 2.5" Diagonal Color LCD Monitor
Panasonic's LCD monitor provides excellent viewing clarity in full vibrant color. The 2.5" diagonal color LCD screen rotates up to 270-degrees for multiple viewing angles, providing sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. Enjoy your finished recordings right away!

Get an extraordinarily Close Shot with 24x Optical Zoom and 800x Digital Zoom
The optical zoom acts like a telescope to produce close-up shots with extraordinary clarity. And, with variable zoom speeds, you can adjust how fast the camcorder lens moves from wide-angle to full telescope. In addition, the digital zoom ratio can be increased up to an extraordinary 800x. Now that's close up!

Digital Electronics Image Stabilizer (D-EIS) Helps Eliminate Blurred Images
Digital EIS compensates for hand and camcorder movement to stabilize your recordings, even while you're recording as a passenger from a moving vehicle or while walking. With Digital EIS, you will not have to worry about shaky soccer games or family outings.

Digital Still Images
The VDR-M53 has a built-in digital still camera which lets you capture natural lifelike still images directly onto a DVD disc or SD Memory Card. SD memory cards are about the size of a postage stamp that work as "digital film," letting you capture images and then transfer them to a compatible PC, TV, PDA, or other device equipped with an SD slot. It is an easy way to share your images with friends and family.
