New! JVC 3-CCD Mini-DV Camcorder offers 5-Megapixel Still PerformanceThe new next generation JVC GR-X5 features 3 individual CCDs for red, green and blue to produce vivid images with true-to life color. A MiniDV camcorder with high quality 5-Megapixel digital still capability set this camera apart. To further enhance performance, the new Mini DV camcorder includes JVC's proprietary Megabrid imaging engine that separately optimizes image quality for video and digital stills. This technology is packed into a fresh, new design that is both compact and comfortable to hold and operate.3-CCD/5-Megapixel PerformanceThe GR-X5 creates sharp and vivid and images by dedicating a 133 (1.23 effective) megapixel CCD to each color - red, green and blue. JVC's advanced prism optics and filterless 3-CCD pixel shift technology quadruple the pixel count to record 5 megapixel-class stills. (691,200 effective pixels are used for each RGB video color.) The broad dynamic range delivers videos with realistic colors and photo-quality digital stills up to 2560 x 1920 pixels for beautiful 8" x 10" or A4 prints. JVC optics using three dimension angle mounting technology assures high precision CCD registration with accuracy on the order of one micron.Innovative DesignSmaller than most 3-CCD camcorders, the GR-X5 is palm-sized, yet large enough that all controls are easily accessible and the camcorder easy to hold securely. A Dynamic Backlight 2.5' LCD Monitor insures a super clear bright view located at the rear of the camcorder, where it can be opened and viewed in the "down" position directly behind the camera body, or flipped up above the camera and swiveled around to both the left and right. Mounted at one's fingertips, the combined Manual Focus, Exposure and Program Auto Exposure Dial provides direct access to key adjustments.Megabrid Engine For Optimum QualityTo make the most of the GR-X5's image gathering capabilities, it uses JVC's Megabrid imaging engine that separately processes video and still signals, providing optimal processing for each. This results in high sensitivity and a high signal-to-noise ratio for moving pictures, as well as clear, high resolution still images. This JVC-exclusive engine works in conjunction with JVC's proven Super High-Band Processor that restores the high-band components of the luminance signal to ensure a crisp, clear picture.It also offers JVC's 3-Dimension Noise Reduction (3D NR), proven picture improvement technology used in high definition digital VCRs that's now available in JVC camcorders. This circuitry reduces video noise by up to 30 percent, especially when shooting in low light.Photo-Quality Stills...5 mega pixelsThanks to the high quality lens, 3-CCD/5-megapixel performance and Megabrid engine, the GR-X5 is able to shoot photo-quality digital stills up to 2560 x 1920 pixels (5 mega pixels) in size, which make beautiful 8" x 10" or A4 prints. And since the GR-X5 offers PictBridge support, prints in the size and quantity desired can easily be printed directly from the camcorder, with no need for a computer.Convenience Features
Bundled Editing & DVD Authoring Applications - The CyberLink DVD Solution bundled with the GR-X5 includes two applications that make it easy to make full-length DVD movies.
