Hitachi DZ-GX3200A review: Hitachi DZ-GX3200A


Hitachi DZ-GX3200A

Decent low-light video quality; solid battery life; in-camera editing.

Hidden touch-sensitive controls; poor auto white balance for stills.

Hitachi's DZ-GX3200A delivers decent video quality at a relatively inexpensive price for a DVD camcorder.
