This little camcorder, revealed at the Japan-only CEATEC, records directly to itty bitty Blu-Ray discs, and looks like a Gundam shoulder mounted cannon. This reminds us of the low-end Samsung mini dvd-camcorder we wrote about a few weeks ago. Except that one was cheap and terrible, and this one will never see a Best Buy store shelf, and is completely awesome.
With all the flash camcorders out there, I would never buy a camcorder that records to discs. You?
