HD Video Camera

The other day I was thinking about buying a Hitachi DZ-HV564E HD camera well today I did and so far I’m very pleased with it. Especially for the price I paid, just £130.

The build quality is great although the plastic body does fell slightly cheap. It produces great videos at 1080p down to 640 x 480.

Below is a sample video captured with the camera (also in HD).

The mic is the best, in fact its quite disappointing, if the room is totally silent the mic picks up a hiss.

Would I recommend it, yes if your in the market for a cheap HD camera and don’t plan on producing anything near professional video because the built in mic just doesn’t cut it.
