The compact JVC GR-D70 is a stylish, go-anywhere digital video camcorder that incorporates all JVC's key camcorder technologies. This entry-level MiniDV camcorder is 50 percent smaller than previous models and features a 16x optical zoom, picture stabilization, a digital still mode, JVC's Night Alive feature, and a 2.5-inch LCD.

Optics & Audio
The GR-D70 offers a 680,000 CCD with 520 lines of horizontal resolution. Combined with JVC's super-hi-band processor, you'll be assured of capturing crisp, clear video. Equipped with a 16x optical zoom, the GR-D70 also features a 700x digital zoom that allows you to zoom in for incredible close-ups. You can also zoom in on any part of an image during playback with the 44x pinpoint zoom.

The GR-D70 also features PCM digital stereo sound in either 12-bit or 16-bit options. The 16-bit mode offers one set of stereo tracks and achieves the same quality as CD, while the 12-bit mode creates two sets of stereo tracks. Audio dub is possible when recorded in 12-bit mode.

Digital Stills
The still mode is capable of capturing crystal-clear still images of up to 1,024 x 768 pixels. The images are stored onto an optional MMC or Secure Digital memory card. You can also record still images onto the video cassette with a "shutter" sound effect in full frame or pin-up mode.

More Features
  • JVC's Night Alive feature boosts light sensitivity for a bright picture, even in situations with minimal illumination
  • A 2.5-inch tilting LCD screen for high-angle overhead shooting, low-angle shots, or even self portraits
  • The Picture Stabilizer system corrects camera shake instantly, giving you smooth and stable pictures
  • The Power Linked Operation feature prepares the camera to record simply by opening the LCD or pulling out the viewfinder
  • The IEEE 1394 (FireWire) connections provides fast, loss-less digital transfer to a computer, or dubbing from or to another DV unit
  • A built-in analog-to-digital converter that converts the analog audio-video signal to a digital signal, and can be recorded to a DV tape
  • Remote control features include playback with special effects, zoom, slow motion, and audio dubbing-insert editing

MiniDV Format
MiniDV is the preferred format for personal and broadcast-quality video, highly regarded for its high audio and image quality. With up to 520 lines of horizontal resolution and minimum color noise, MiniDV delivers a 20 percent clearer picture than analog camcorder formats. This is all delivered on a cassette that's 1/12th the size of a standard VHS tape. A MiniDV tape offers digital recording time of 2 full hours--20 times the capacity of a CD.

This package includes the GR-D70 camcorder, AC adapter (AP-V13U), battery pack (BN-V408U), shoulder strap, AV cable (mini-3 RCA), USB cable, wireless remote control (RM-V718U), lens cap, and CD-ROM with Presto! ImageFolio and Presto! Mr. Photo 3 software.
