Consumer review (

JVC GR-SXM920U is a great value per $ for a S-VHS-C flip-display camcorder


I just placed an order for a new camcorder this weekend and wanted to share with you my experience leading to my happy decision to buy the JVC GR-SXM930U. There is almost no difference between the GR-SXM930U and the GR-SXM920U so this review applies...

3" display, Digital Camera, S-VHS-C, image stabilizer, 400x zoom, sub 1 Lux light sensitivity

It's spirit is digital, but its tape is not :)

Great family camera


I was in the market for both a digital camera and a new camcorder. I saw someone else with this one and knew that this was the one I wanted! How many times did you have the camcorder with you and wish you had your still camera too? This is the...

Many features - VHSC and Digital pictures all in one camera!

Hand grip area is just a little too wide for my short hands.

Product Specifications

The GR-SXM920 DualCam is JVC's top-of-the-line analog camcorder for the 2000 model year. This S-VHS ET model can record the superior resolution of S-VHS video on more affordable VHS-C blank cassettes. With the included adapter, the compact cassettes can be played back in any VCR that accepts the S-VHS format. The GR-SXM920 has a 16x optical zoom lens, and digital magnification extends the zoom a bit further. In telephoto shots - especially handheld ones - you can activate the digital image stabilizer to compensate for unwanted camera movements. The 3-inch swiveling LCD monitor makes it easier to shoot over the heads of a crowd, while the color viewfinder provides an alternative to the LCD in bright sunlight. After the sun goes down, the built-in video light improves color accuracy. Although the GR-SXM920 records analog video, its imaging chip can also capture digital stills, which are saved in the 2MB of built-in flash memory. The 640 x 480 resolution makes the snapshots suitable for Web and email use. Among other features are 6 Component digital signal processing with Chroma Noise Reduction, Time Base Corrector, Luminance Noise Reduction, Horizontal Aperture Circuitry, Vertical Aperture Circuitry, Variable g Circuitry; Animation and Timelapse - Animation lets you shoot video a frame at a time to make drawings and objects "move" on the tape, while Timelapse automatically records at set intervals so you can catch rare scenes, like a flower blooming, on tape (SP mode only).
