Looking for a versatile camcorder that makes shooting great home movies super-simple? JVC’s GR-D90 combines Mini DV’s gorgeous video quality, the photo-snapping ability of a digital camera, and lots of features that make it really easy to use. The LCD viewscreen is one element that helps make newer camcorders so user-friendly — you get a nice view of your subject for recording, and what you’ve taped is readily visible on playback. Most Mini DV cams come equipped with a 2-1/2″ viewscreen (measured diagonally), but the GR-D90’s viewscreen measures 3-1/2″. That may not sound like a big difference, but it actually amounts to almost twice the screen size! Other conveniences that allow for easy filming include Digital Image Stabilization to prevent shakiness, 16X optical zoom for great close-ups, and Night-Alive mode, for taping full-color video in low light. And of course, since the ‘D90 captures your videos digitally, you can easily transfer movies to your compatible PC or Mac® using the cam’s i.LINK™ jack. After that, use separate software to trim or rearrange scenes, and add effects! Interested in snapping still images? The included 8MB MultiMediaCard® will store between 24 and 190 photos, depending on resolution. Use the included USB interface to transfer those pictures to your computer for editing, e-mailing, or posting online! Learn more at Crutchfield.com.
