The biggest strength in DZ-GX3300, DZ-GX3200, and DZ-GX3100 is the quick start mode that allows the camcorder to start up in approximately one second. This function lets you start taking pictures whenever you are ready. Also, there is the still image capturing feature you can use to select a scene from a recorded movie to turn into a picture (still image). The camcorders utilize "PictureMaster for DVD camcorder" with image processing features specialized for handling DVD images based on MPEG2 compression. This feature enables recording and replaying of high-resolution images.
