Product Specifications

JVC innovations in DV and miniaturization technology provide this MiniDV camera with superior picture and sound quality, sophisticated effects, and computer connectivity. From the compact, lightweight lens offering excellent contrast and minimal color aberration and triangle stereo microphone (with three pickups to improve directional sensitivity and preserve sound quality) to the LCD monitor and DV terminal, every detail has been designed to deliver optimum performance in an ultra-portable package that is extra-tough thanks to its die-cast magnesium and carbon-fiber reinforced body. Offering 400-line resolution, the swivel-mounted 180, 000-pixel polycrystalline TFT active matrix LCD monitor on the GR-DVM5 provides superb clarity at all times for both shooting and playback. As well as the 10x optical zoom, there's a 100x digital zoom featuring spline interpolation to smooth contours when you want to pick out a face from the crowd. Also handy when zooming in for a portrait is the digital image stabilizer, which helps to eliminate camera shake without affecting image quality. You can be quick on the draw with the GR-DVM5 because of its power-linked operation. Just pull out the color viewfinder or open the monitor, and automatically the lens cover opens, power turns on and you're ready to shoot. Full Auto Mode is available with such features as Auto Macro (for close-ups), letting you concentrate on composition.
