DIGA DVD Palmcorder® MultiCam™ Camcorder with 30x Optical Zoom and 1000x Digital Zoom


Multi-Format Recording - DVD-RAM, DVD-R or DVD-RW - The Choice is Yours!
Our DVD Palmcorder 174; Camcorders can record on DVD-R, DVD-RW and even DVD-RAM discs. Record over and over again on DVD-RAM discs or record something just once on DVD-R discs. You can choose whichever type of disc works best with your DVD player or recorder.

Easy Shooting, Quick Editing and Convenient Viewing
  • No Stress, No Mistakes. Our DVD Palmcorder camcorder automatically finds a blank section on the disc for recording. You never need to search for blank disc space and there's no need to worry about recording over a previous recording.
  • Quick, Easy Editing. The index screen makes it easy to search for a particular scene. You can view, delete and edit quickly and easily.
  • Easy, Direct Networking. When you finish shooting, just take the disc from the DVD Palmcorder camcorder and slip it right into your DVD player or recorder. There's no need to connect any cables and you can start viewing right away.
Powerful 30x Optical Zoom

MPEG2 Engine Captures Complex Motion with Precision
Our MPEG2 engine is a wide-range, high-precision search engine that produces smooth, beautiful moving pictures. Because it records the differences in each frame, it can render fast, complex motions - like those of children in the thick of the action - with exceptional precision. The MPEG2 engine also uses the Variable Bit Rate system that we adopted for our high-end DIGA DVD recorder. LP (Long Play) mode now offers nearly twice the resolution of previous MPEG2 recording video cameras, giving you the best possible resolution at the longest recording times.
