The JVC Everio GZ-R320 takes stunning HD video, and is ready for everything. A Quad Proof design makes it water proof, dust proof, shock proof and freeze proof. A five hour battery means you can continue recording far longer than a typical camcorder. Take this camcorder places you would never take a normal camcorder for videos that are unlike anything possible with a normal camcorder. Rain, Snow, Swimming Pools, Off-Road, Amusement Parks - you name it. Look forward to legendary JVC video quality with a high performance HD zoom lens, high bit-rate AVCHD recording, zoom microphone and advanced image stabilizer - all features that are not available from a typical smart phone or tablet.
