The Panasonic camcorder is designed to be small, easy to use, and record high-quality videos and photos. With the Panasonic VDR-D310 video camera, users do not have to upload videos to a computer to make a DVD. Instead, the Panasonic camcorder records directly on a DVD. Rather than having to scan through the disc to find a blank space to record, the camcorder will automatically locate one upon recording. Additional cables are not needed with the Panasonic VDR-D310 video camera because the DVDs are ready to be viewed in a DVD player as soon as they are done recording. For capturing close-up shots, the 700x zoom camcorder can get 700 times closer to the action. In addition, the 700x zoom camcorder has the ability to adjust to different shooting modes including indoor, outdoor, and action scenes. Not only is the Panasonic camcorder easy to use, but it also uses a 3CCD optical sensor for professional quality video recording.
