Product Description From Hitachi:
Though full-size VHS camcorders are becoming less and less common, some people still prefer them to newer, smaller models. Despite their larger size, standard VHS camcorders offer two advantages over VHS-C and 8mm cameras. First, the tapes can immediately be played through a VCR, rather than using an adapter or requiring the camera to be connected to the TV. Second, the shoulder-mounted shooting style necessitated by the camera's size makes it much easier to shoot smooth, steady videos.
The VM8500LA features a 16x optical zoom, as well as a 240x digital zoom. The camcorder can also shoot in as little illumination as 0.3 lux, and if it's too dark for good footage, there's a built-in auto light. Five digital fades and five digital effects give you the opportunity to add a touch of professionalism to your footage. Digital image stabilization helps to keep the shakes out of your videos. To compose and review shots, users have two options: a black-and-white optical viewfinder and a 3-inch swivel-mounted color LCD. A built-in playback speaker lets you hear mono audio from the footage you've just shot. A manual character titler also lets you label the footage you're shooting.
To make sure your shooting experience is as easy as possible, the VM8500LA automatically sets shutter speed, iris, white balance, focus, and backlight compensation. It will even automatically select macro mode when appropriate. The VM8500LA comes equipped with a rechargeable battery and an AC adapter/charger.
