The new models also feature an SD Memory Card slot for use with the camcorder’s digital still camera feature.
“These new DIGA DVD camcorders are the logical choice in DVD recording,” said Rudolf Vitti, national marketing manager of the Panasonic Optical Group. “They offer easy recording onto DVD media, in-camera editing and no-nonsense playback via a standard home DVD player.”
