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.
PCM Digital Stereo Sound
12/16-bit audio: 16-bit offers one set of stereo tracks and achieves the same quality as CD, while the 12-bit mode creates two sets of stereo tracks. Audio dub is possible when recorded in 12-bit mode.
Equipped with a 16x optical zoom that lets you close in on your subject with a pure optical quality, and the 700x digital zoom that allows you go all the way out with incredible close-ups.
The stabilizer system corrects camera shake instantly, giving you smooth and stable pictures.
This camcorder is equipped with a 2.5" tilt able LCD screen for high angle overhead shooting, low angle shots, or even self portraits.
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. This feature supercedes the infrared based system which turns the image black and white, and you have distance limitations.
A combination of built-in Digital Special Effects and Wipes/Fades will give your videos a polished and professional look.
