      In case you've been on Mars for the last year, the Pocket DV range is the best-selling line of all-in-one digital recording equipment on Firebox.com.

      Being digital, all the Photos, Videos and Audio recordings you take can be easily downloaded to your PC and then either emailed to your mates or burnt onto CDR - and playable through most DVD Players!

      ...Movie-making has never been easier!

      Pocket DV3 Camcorder Building on the features of the top-selling Pocket DV2 Camcorder, the DV3 now offers:
      • A brighter, sharper 1.5" colour TFT LCD screen
      • Digital Zoom
      • 2.1 Mega-Pixel resolution (up to 3 mega-pixel through software interpolation)
      • FREE 32MB CompactFlash card
      ...all for under $pound;130!

      Expandable Memory
      The 32MB of CompactFlash bundled with the standard model gives you around 5-8 mins of video, but you can upgrade the memory (up to 512MB) with additional CompactFlash (CF) cards to give you up to two hours of video! Click here to buy CompactFlash cards separately, or save money when you buy them with the DV3 itself!

      LCD Screen & A/V Out
      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.

      Now you can review your photos and videos on the 1.5" colour LCD screen, and even connect the DV3 to your TV or Video with the A/V leads supplied.

      Free Software
      With the free bundled software you can:
      • Edit and organise your photos
      • Edit your video footage
      • Use the DV3 as a PC Camera
      • Host live video conferences
      • Produce personal VCDs playable in most modern DVD players
      The Pocket DV Camcorder also comes complete with a carry case and 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.
