Design prototypes for future Hitachi camcorders on display this week at the CEATEC trade fair in Makuhari, near Tokyo. The device on the right will have a Blu-ray disc in it. The one that looks like a shaver, on the left, is designed to have flash memory. Several manufacturers want to bring cheaper models (priced at $1,000 or less) to the market next year.
