JVC GR DVX 4 : I have the JVC DVX4EK Digital camcorder.

 

This digital camcorder is a compact lightweight and easy to use piece of equipment. At first glance it might look a bit daunting, but don't be put off as it is very user friendly. A pull out colour LCD screen (which also rotates 360) makes for easier...

Product Specifications

A highlight of the new GR-DVX4 MiniDV camera is its compact, lightweight design. The full-metal chassis provides for superb durability, and the sleek stylish body houses a 800, 000-pixel CCD image sensor to bring out the full characteristics of the MiniDV format. Yet it fits into the palm of the hand for easy one-handed operation. Its outstanding portability means there's no reason to ever leave it behind - it slips into a bag or daypack ready to capture anything and everything that catches your eye. The GR-DVX4 MiniDV camera incorporates a compact lens assembly and a high-performance 800,000-pixel CCD image sensor to capture high-quality video footage. The GR-DVX4's Advanced Snapshot and Motor Drive functions add a unique touch to video footage by integrating still image "snapshots." The Motor Drive integrates rapid-fire still image shots into your full-motion video, ideal for recording fast action sequences in short segments. The Auto Flash feature provides for improved still image recording, automatically flashing when existing light levels are insufficient. Choose the Red-eye Reduction setting to avoid this unwanted phenomenon. Fill-in Flash lets you manually activate the flash on demand. In addition to the 10x optical zoom, a 100x digital zoom with spline interpolation to smooth contours helps you to pick out a face in the crowd. A 400-line resolution LCD monitor lets you enjoy framing high-quality digital video recordings during shooting, and reviewing them during playback. The GR-DVX4's power-linked operation makes for quick starts. Simply pull out the color viewfinder or open the monitor, and the lens cover automatically opens, the power switches on and you're ready to shoot. Full Auto Mode lets users concentrate on composition of their shots. Quick Rec enables the sequential shooting of 5-second segments.
