From the Manufacturer
From the Manufacturer High quality optics and digital technology combine to push the limits of MiniDV, making the GR-DZ7 a super-advanced, palm-sized wonder. The camera’s 1/3.6" CCD with a total of 2.12 million pixels (effective: 1.23 million for moving pictures, 2 million for still pictures) comprises a superior image sensor with the high resolution capabilities needed for high-end videography.
The 9-group 11-element lens structure features a high-precision glass-molded aspherical lens to maximize performance while minimizing overall lens size. Made specifically to meet the highresolution demands of the 2.1 Megapixel CCD, this 10x optical zoom lens delivers superior resolution and contrast to assure high fundamental quality for video and still shooting.
Megabrid Engine for optimal video and still quality
Applies separate, optimized processing to moving and still images, providing high sensitivity and a high signal-to-noise ratio for videos even in low-light conditions, as well as clear, high resolution still images that deliver beautiful quality prints. RGB based processing assures more rich and realistic color reproduction.
3-Dimension Noise Reduction (3D NR)
This frame-based noise reduction provides more accurate noise reduction based on twice the visual information of conventional field-based types. Reduces video noise by 30% in low light for a 2dB improvement in the signal-to-noise ratio. So even in low-light situations, it’s able to minimize noise while maintaining high picture quality.
|Conventional 3D NR is fieldbased, comparing fields A and B that make up a frame and thus offering limited accuracy since it compares odd and even scanning lines.|
|JVC’s new 3D NR compares field A to field A, and field B to field B, across two frames, so it detects noise components in the same lines between the two frames.|

What I would like but not exist in this camcorder:
a) video light
b) cold/hot shoe
c) F1.2 lens
d) 30x zoom
e) optical image stabilizer
But I did not regret because this is my first camcorder and it should be low price. After few years then only I'll upgrade to 3CCD with a lot of manual function. Something like Panasonic GS400.
Plus, it takes awesome video too!
I've checked other JVC problems on the net; broken CCDs, reset problems, etc. Stay away from JVC; I wish I did.
By the way, JVC is terrible in low light compared to my 10 year old Sony 8mm.
Surprsingly, this JVC model cannot even play back the tape properly. The two replacement units Amazon sent to us do not work either!
To verify the tape itself, I tried one Canon and one Panasonic camcorder at local BestBuy. It can be played flawlessly.
