The ZR-series camcorders make it easy to transfer your digital movies to your computer's hard disk, edit your scenes, and then use them to create high impact Web sites, video e-mail, interactive CDs and DVDs, or a personal video album. All three models feature a USB Terminal and DV Terminal (IEEE 1394 or Firewire) for transfer of your memories without any loss in quality.
For convenient storage and portability of your still images, the ZR300 features an additional built-in slot for SD (Secure Digital) Memory Cards or a MultiMediaCards. As an added bonus, the ZR300 kit includes an 8M SD Memory Card, so you can start shooting and sharing straight from the box.
Normal and Motion JPEG Extended Movies
Record movie clips in Normal and Motion JPEG Extended movie formats directly onto the memory card, for clear images and smooth playback. Alternately, you can take the 320 x 240 pixel or 160 x 120 pixel mini-movie and attach it to an e-mail or post it on the web. Best of all, you can record for the full length of the SD Memory Card*.
*Max. 60 minutes (512MB SD Memory Card). When using MultiMediaCards, movie clips are limited to 10 seconds in 320 x 240 and 30 seconds in 160 x 120.
Picture Transfer Protocol
The ZR300 goes even further to make life simple by supporting Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP). PTP enables data communication with a computer without the need to install dedicated driver software. In other words, PTP creates a direct link with the computer to access the camcorder as though it was an external card reader*.
*This feature is available only with computers running Windows XP or Mac OS X (version 10.1 or later) operating system.
