HDD or Hard Disk Drive camcorders are one of the most popular storage formats today. They are typically used to store the newer AVCHD format video which is a high compression-low quality format (as compared to HDV).

HDD storage is often the perfect compliment to most consumer grade camcorders - their large sizes, often going upto 500GB, offer much more affordable storage costs as compared to the more expensive flash camcorders. The downside is that hard disk drives due to moving parts are much more prone to failure on rough handling as compared to flash camcorders - however this might not be a very big concern as they are still robust enough for your typical camcorder usage environments.
