JVC GR DV-2000 review


With impeccable timing, as we had dismissed JVC's MiniDV devices as unusable for DV editors, the company launched its new range of camcorders for 2001. Leading the pack out of the factory is a well-featured 'enthusiast's' model - the DV2000 - sporting...

Shooting modes are manual or automatic, with a range of presets. Hit the central button near the right thumb and you're recording - and the photo button is directly on top of the camera. This basic configuration is fine if you're holding the camera...

Product Specifications

Born to shoot - a new breed of digital video camera. Based on a straightforward idea - that a better camera produces a better picture. Optically and digitally ready to perform - if serious performance is what you want, the GR-DV2000 is the answer that catapults you to a higher level of videography and photography. Totally focused on quality this high-band DV model is improved thanks to a 680,000 pixel Progressive Scan CCD, a high-band video processor, and the unique JVC Progressive Color Filter. By using this technology, JVC is able to achieve Progressive 1000 super resolution - an astounding 520 lines horizontal by 480 lines vertical resolution. This technology also offers a digital still picture quality that exceeds the capabilities of traditional DV videotape. JVC has added the Dual Cam feature with a removable SD memory card/ MultiMediaCard compatibility (16MB MMC card included), which can be used to store your highest-resolution still pictures. A digital still picture output is provided, and both the USB cable and CD ROM software for Windows are included to allow easy downloading of still pictures to your computer. DV in/out provides for easy computer connection for more advanced applications. Geared towards shooting the GR-DV2000 boasts a slim shooting-oriented in-line design, a real-touch manual focus ring, power-linked operation (as soon as you pull out the viewfinder or open the LCD monitor, the camera automatically powers up), an Info-Shoe for various accessories (auto light, video flash and stereo zoom mic), a lens hood, and an endurance shooting. An analog input allows for older video sources to be copied to the Mini DV format. This makes it possible to create an archived copy or lets you download the video to a computer for additional editing. The GR-DV2000 has the best view in the house with a 3.5" LCD view screen, and a color viewfinder. The 300X zoom makes sure you don't miss any of the action. Playback zoom lets you move in for a closer look after you have made the recording. Add to this a wide selection of Pro Style digital effects and scene transitions - most of which can be applied during playback, without affecting the original recording; Progressive Super Wide to shoot a wider image; dual shooting mode to shoot motion video and a still picture at the same time uninterrupted. And a multi-brand remote control allows you to control the cybercam as well as many brands of video recorders. Random assemble editing provides an eight-scene memory for favorite scenes as well as the ability to add special effects while editing them to a video recorder.
