      Join the digital video revolution and create your own 3 minute movies with the Pocket DV Camcorder.

      The abbreviation "DV" in this case stands for "Digital Video", so everything you shoot can be easily downloaded to your PC, edited using the free software provided, then saved for posterity and distributed to all and sundry. Movie-making has never been easier!

      The 16MB of onboard SDRAM gives you:
      • 450 still photos in high resolution or 2000 in low resolution
      • 3 minutes of 320x240 video (inc sound), or
      • 30 minutes of pure sound recording!
      Most great movie-makers started out with short films, and this little beauty will have you up and running and making Oscar award-winning* pieces in minutes. (* Not guaranteed, obviously).

      With many Hollywood movies coming in at over two hours these days, the Pocket DV Camcorder is a timely reminder of the art of brevity. Imagine having to condense the best bits of Star Wars, or The Godfather, or even Carry on Camping - into just three minutes. It would be tough, but you know the resulting masterpiece would be pure gold from start to finish.

      Where the l'espion and Blink capture mere snapshots of time, the Pocket DV Camcorder can record whole videos sequences of your life - ready to be saved, edited and emailed to your mates. The possibilities are, quite literally, endless.

      The Pocket DV Camcorder also comes complete with a mini-tripod to help eliminate any "morning-after shakes" from your cinematic efforts. Alternatively you can go commando and achieve that gritty, Blairwitch-esque feel by shooting handheld.
