Shoot crystal-clear high-definition video with the JVC GR-HD1 digital video camcorder. By utilizing a 1.18-megapixel progressive-scan CCD and JVC proprietary processing, the GR-HD1 camcorder records and plays back at 750 lines of resolution at 30 frames per second, recording MPEG2 video to MiniDV tape.
The GR-HD1 comes with an optical 10x zoom lens and built-in optical image stabilizer. It also uses a newly developed 1/3 inch-type 1.18-million pixel (1.14 million effective pixels) progressive-scan CCD. The GR-HD1 can also record digital stills up 1,280 x 960 pixel resolution to SD cards.
Featuring up-converter and down-converter functions, the GR-HD1 can adapt video playback to any monitor. The up-converter function converts 750/30fps digital high-definition images and 525fps progressive-wide images to the 1125i high-definition standard. The down-converter function converts images to the conventional 525i broadcast standard.
The camcorder's grip section rotates by up to 90 degrees so you can film at low angles without removing your hand from the grip. The grip adjusts its position during filming, enabling more stable filming at all times.
The camcorder offers a FireWire port, a USB port, a headphone-out and a microphone-in port, and an S-video and RCA Video in-out port.
