JVC Mini DV GR-D870 and GR-D850 camcorders with 35X optical zoom

The compact design of the new JVC MiniDV camcorder line JVC GR-D870 and GR-D850 belies a rich set of powerful features, such as a KONICA MINOLTA LENS with 35x optical zoom and a 2.7-inch 16:9 widescreen LCD monitor with automatic backlight control for easy viewing, even on a bright, sunny day. For low-light shooting there is also the built-in Auto Illumi-Light LED. A powerful 35x optical zoom and 800x digital zoom provide great detail without sacrificing quality.
The GR-D870 provides a new level of versatility with Dual Recording and Live Slow features. With Dual Recording, users don’t have to choose between shooting still images or video: still pictures can be taken while shooting video.

Both JVC GR-D870 and GR-D850 come with an array of features to enhance ease-of-use and ensure top quality footage. Other standard features include Multi-Language On-Screen to switch the on-screen display language, a dedicated Auto Button to instantly switch between auto and manual modes, and Power-Linked Operation, which switches the camcorder on as soon as the LCD monitor is opened.
