JVC Camcorder Features to Look Out For

Capturing Sound

If you want to capture equally high quality audio look out for microphone support and a headphone jack. This will help to record several voices at once or filter out background noise to get the best all-round recording.

Real-Time Playback

For viewing footage in real-time, many handheld JVC camcorders include an LCD screen sometimes with touchscreen support to adjust settings. They can often support a built-in viewfinder which can be beneficial when it’s difficult to view footage on the display.  

Manual Controls

Most modern JVC camcorders will come with a host of automatic settings to help take the complication out of filming but having manual controls - like the option to adjust exposure levels and shutter speed - can give you more flexibility when you are filming things like fast-moving action at a sporting event.

Connectivity

A camcorder with connectivity support like built-in Wi-Fi or tablet and smartphone support can make it easier to share content, upload it to the web or quickly transfer it to your PC or Mac.

Getting Close Ups

To get up close to the action having a good quality zoom is going to be key. Most camcorders feature a digital zoom and optical zooms though the strength of the latter is most important.

Stablisation

To prevent video from looking shaky, look for a JVC camcorder with optical image stabilisation. This will help compensate from the movement when you are moving around to film the action.

Storage

You should also think about how footage is going to be stored. Some camcorders will come with internal flash memory which is lighter than traditional hard drives. SD card support also means you can quickly transfer footage to a computer for editing.
