Recorded video and still images captured by the VDR-M30K can be played back on DVD-RAM and the majority of DVD-R compatible MPEG2-conforming devices. The camcorder also has a USB port for easy direct connection to a PC.
Panasonic's Hybrid VBR (variable bit rate) technology brings the excitement of DVD recording to the VDR-M30K. Recorded video and still images can be saved onto 8cm DVD media. Additionally, still images can be recorded onto an SD Memory Card.
With the VDR-M30K, users can access recorded scenes without the hassles of searching, fast-forwarding or rewinding. Indexed thumbnails are displayed on the unit's 2.5" color LCD. In addition, the camcorder will automatically find blank space on the DVD-RAM disc whenever a recording begins, eliminating the possibility of recording over precious memories. Camcorder editing features include delete, rearrange, fade in/out, wipe, divide and splice.
Other features include a color viewfinder, powerful 10x optical/240x digital zoom2 and digital electronic image stabilization.
