No tapes. No discs. JVC's innovative GZ-MG40 can store approx. 5 hours of DVD-quality recordings on its built-in 20GB disk drive. Imagine filming your entire vacation without having to carry along all those extra cassette and disc cases, and never having to stop and reload.
Finding a particular scene you've recorded is a easy, too, thanks to the hard drive's direct access capability. There's no fast forwarding or rewinding necessary - your movie clips are cataloged as thumbnail images. Just select the one you want and it's instantly ready to view. You can easily delete scenes to free up disk space, or assemble them into playlists for viewing in any order you wish. And there's never any risk of recording over precious, once-in-a-lifetime footage. The 'MG40 always selects a blank space on the hard drive to begin recording your next scene.
When you've finished shooting your video, you can use the cam's high-speed USB interface to download it to a compatible computer. JVC includes intuitive, easy-to-use software for editing your footage, adding titles and effects, or even mixing still images together with motion video. Use your PC's DVD burner to make copies for permanent storage and for sharing with friends and family. You can play your movies back on a TV, as well, or record them to a VCR or component DVD recorder using the 'MG40's audio/video outputs.
Along with its flexible, hard-disk-based recording abilities, this camcorder offers a host of features that help ensure stunning video. It uses a 15X optical zoom lens that is designed to gather more light, teamed together with JVC's proprietary video noise reduction system. The result is a brighter, cleaner-looking picture, even in dimly lit conditions. A 1.33-megapixel image sensor lets you capture crisp digital photos and save them to the hard drive or to optional SD memory cards. And this cam's advanced image processor handles video and still images separately to deliver optimal performance for each.
