The Panasonic VDR-D310 offers easy recording directly to 8-centimeter mini-DVDs, so users can record one moment and re-watch it on any DVD player the next. The DVD recording system includes an indexing feature that makes it easy to find any scene in a snap. The palm-sized unit also features a 10x optical zoom Leica lens paired with a professional-grade 3CCD imaging system at 3.1 megapixels. Panasonic's Optical Image Stabilization (O.I.S.) system, which is also found on all of Panasonic's digital still cameras, helps reduce blur caused by camera shake. Featuring a 2.7" widescreen LCD, the VDR-D310 can record in both 16:9 widescreen format and standard full-frame 4:3. Aside from its video capabilities, it can take 3.1-megapixel still images of very good quality.
