Product Description

Compact VHS-C 25X Optical Zoom 1000X Digital Zoom 2.5" LCDScreen Includes Cassette Adaptor

Amazon.com

There are still great purchases to be made in the VHS format, and the JVC GR-SXM38US Compact Super VHS Camcorder is one of them. This slim, compact silver camcorder includes a powerful zoom, digital noise reduction, and an LCD screen to make recording at picnics, backyard barbecues and graduations easy. Best of all, when you are done recording, simply pop out the cassette, place it in the included VHS Playpak adapter, and play it on any standard VCR.

The GR-SXM38US camcorder features a digital time-base corrector (TBC) that helps eliminate picture jitter, and digital chroma noise reduction (CNR) that eliminates color noise and smear. This unit also features a picture stabilizer function that corrects camera shake instantly, giving you smooth and stable pictures, which when combined with the TBC and CNR features makes this camcorder not only incredibly easy to use, but as point-and-shoot as they come. And with the Pro-cision five video head VHS-C and Super VHS recording technology that this camera employs, you get an all-around 60-percent better picture quality than with regular VHS recorders. The GR-SXM38US also includes 108 combinations of built-in digital special effects and wipes/fades that allow you to give your videos a polished, professional look, as well as a built-in battery charger that means you will always have a spare at your fingertips, without having to fumble for an extra battery in the middle of an important moment.

This JVC VHS camcorder utilizes a 1/6-inch CCD image sensor with 320,000 pixels, and a 2.2 to 44 millimeter f1.8 wide-angle lens. This unit provides you with both a 25x optical zoom, and a 1000x variable-speed digital hyper zoom, ensuring you will always be able to get up close and personal no matter how far away you are. The GR-SXM38US has a 30.5 millimeter filter, and requires less than one lux of lighting in Super LoLux mode. This compact camcorder utilizes the NTSC system for VHS-C and VHS NTSC Standard formats, includes mono audio, and date and time stamping. You can view your subject while filming through the 0.5-inch black-and-white CRT viewfinder, or via the 2.5-inch color LCD display that both rotates 270 degrees, and flips out before snapping back so you can film your video from virtually any angle. This unit includes both auto and manual controls for the focus, exposure and white balance, has a built-in microphone, and a title generator that features eight preset messages in either English, Spanish, French or Portuguese. The JVC GR-SXM38US allows for animation and time lapse, has a quick review and retake function, includes a black fader feature, and provides you with digital auto tracking. Weighing 1.7 pounds and measuring 3.2 x 4.9 x 8.5 inches (W x H x D), the GR-SXM38US is backed by a 1-year parts and 90-days labor manufacturer's limited warranty.

What's in the Box

The JVC GR-SXM38US Super VHS Camcorder is a great little camcorder . . . it is easy to use and takes great video, even under very low light conditions. I am extremely pleased with this camcorder. I wish, however, the proper cables to hook up to a television were included with the camcorder. It took a couple of trips to Fry's to finally get the right cables to use with my television and watch my videos. As far as the camcorder goes - I highly recommend it for anyone purchasing their first camcorder, and the price was very reasonable, as well.

I had a lot of fun with this camcorder although I should've taken better care of it because I had to replace it with a used one when it got broken and they don't sell these new anymore for a price that is not crazy!

This is a great camcorder.. I owned it for several years..have moved too many times and have lost it and am in process of buying another..I used it to make movies of my sons football games..lots of vacation recording too...cant say anything bad about it..the sound it records is very good.. use to record in my car while moving and had stereo in car playing...records sound very good... bass response and everything..during playback it reproduced music flawlessly as well as having a great picture...anti jiggle thing works really good..zoom is awesome but if you zoom in too close the picture loses quality..but im talkin digital zoom mostly..it has both..you wont go wrong with this camera..if things are really quiet you can hear some motor noise from camera but usually not noticeable...I have taken many of the tapes and transferred to digital...if you dont after a few years you might find that your tapes arejittery and even blank.. so after recording I suggest to transfer to digital within a couple years...
