Key Features

DV Format
With this mini DV camcorder, you will realize truly amazing picture and sound quality. Images reaching up to 520 lines of horizontal resolution reveal stunning detail and clarity.

Built-In Digital Still Mode
The still mode is capable of capturing crystal-clear still images of up to (1024 x 768) XGA resolution. The images are stored onto an optional MMC/SD memory card.
NOTE: In the 1024 x 768 mode, images are shot in 720 x 480 pixels and are converted and stored in the 1024 x 768 file size.

Live Slow
This feature is extremely useful for playing back precious or hard to see moments at a slow speed. Slow motion images are recorded with sound on a DVC tape and played back in real time sound. In addition, even footage shot at normal speed can be played back with the slow motion effect.

Super High-Band Processor
Digital technology expands the camera signal's frequency range to raise the video's horizontal resolution to 520 lines, taking full advantage of the DV format's original resolution.

Data Battery
Allows the user to check remaining battery and recording time by simply touching one button even with the power turned off. This feature allows you to check what remains for both the battery and recording time before shooting, so you can prevent the battery from running out during shooting.

Web Camera Function
You can connect the camcorder to your computer via iEEE-1394 interface and use it just like a Web Camera for your teleconferencing and remote monitoring applications.

LCD Monitor
2.5" Clear View LCD monitor suppresses diffusion of internal light to deliver a brighter, clearer image, and also reduces reflection and glare from external light so that images are always clearly visible even when shooting outdoors in bright sunlight.

Built-in Auto Light
Brightens up your subject in low light situations using energy efficient LEDs to reduce battery drain. The camera will automatically turn off in bright environments so energy isn't.

Picture Stabilizer
The stabilizer system corrects camera shake instantly, giving you smooth and stable pictures. This feature will give you full color images wheather your subject is close-by or far away.

JVC's Night Alive feature boosts light sensitivity for a bright picture, even in situations with minimal illumination. Gives you full color images, whether your subject is close by or far away.

On Screen Languages
You can choose between the Spanish, English, French and Chinese languages used for menu settings and camera operations, making the camera much easier to operate.
