JVC MG730 camcorder

Posted by: Mark Peters Monday 7th, January 2008

JVC introduces a higher-performance camcorder, the JVC MG730. Also new is Laser Touch, a touch-sensitive scroll bar that simplifies operation and a new design that’s some 20 percent smaller than last year’s entry-level model. The JVC GZ-MG730 offers higher-resolution digital stills by virtue of a 7 Megapixel CCD, making it unnecessary for people to carry both a camcorder and a digital still camera. This model is the first in the world to have an embedded 1.3” hard disk drive (30GB), which allowed JVC to integrate a large 1/2.5” CCD and its accompanying large optical lens section, without getting bulky - thereby providing the quality benefits of a large lens while maintaining a small body and offering large capacity.

Engineers from the imaging industry have ‘discovered’ video. Video, in all its quality formats, becomes more important than ever before.

Dimensions and weight, and High Definition video quality, packed in a compact housing are one of the most important specifications for success.
