Mini DV and HD Camcorder Review JVC GR-HD1

 

JVC, inventor of the ubiquitous VHS format, has done it again, offering an innovative high-definition consumer camcorder that is the first of its kind. High-definition enthusiasts seeking a unique accessory for their HDTVs will love it. If you own an...

HD, progressive scan ; Very easy to use

JVC GR-HD1 HD Digital Camcorder

 

I have been reading comments on the web and it seems many people can't figure out how to install the software.

True 16:9 ratio and not matted or squeezed. Big improvement in the home video camera market. Composite output.

If you dont have the right lighting its a bit "Noisy" in the lux department. Apature adjustments usually help. It's only a single charge coupling device and not a 3CCD. For the money I wish it did.

JVC GR-HD1 HD Digital Camcorder

 

NO RESEARCH BEFORE INTRODUCING THIS CAMERA TO THE MAKET.

Display screen,video capture option-HD,SD,DV

NOT COMPATIBLE WITH CURRENT VIDEO EDITING SOFTWARE. WILL NOT WORK WITH PREMIERE. MUST CAPTURE IN DV MODE ONLY TO WORK WITH PREMIERE. ANY DV CAMERA UNDER $400 WILL DO THAT, THE HD1 IS $3,500.
