Product Specifications

The JVC GR-SXM340U has three recording modes: it uses Super VHS recording to deliver up to 60% better resolution than JVC's standard models for better-quality home movies. For quality and economy, the Super VHS ET mode lets you take those high-resolution videos using any VHS-C tape. For compatibility with any VHS video recorder, standard VHS is also available. Easily capture digital stills from your video footage by serial (RS232c) connection. Just hook up the provided connector and run the provided Digital Photo Navigator program, and capture stills individually, or at selectable intervals, or automatically import the scenes where you've used the Snapshot mode in your videos. A 2.5" LCD view screen allows the camera to be operated from any angle, for maximum comfort. The picture stabilizer gets rid of annoying picture shake. The 600X zoom makes sure you don't miss any of the action. A built-in light improves the picture in nighttime situations. Endurance Shooting allows up to two hours recording time with the provided battery pack. When you are done recording, the tapes play back & and can be shared in any VHS video recorder using the provided VHS-C Playpak.
