Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty

Experience the extraordinary with the GR-DF550! Its EZ grip design puts total control in the palm of your hand. But it's not just the comfortable feel that makes the GR-DF550 a powerful performer. Thanks to its 1.33M CCD imager you'll enjoy 540 lines of high resolution video. JVC's exclusive Low Light Plus incorporates two key technologies: The F1.2 Super Bright Lens obtains twice the light of an F1.8 lens assuring a bright picture with less noise even in less than desirable lighting conditions. And Three Dimensional Noise Reduction (3D NR) eliminates picture noise up to 30% in low light situations. JVC's exclusive Megabrid Engine applies separate optimized processing for high resolution video and superior digital stills.

Keep your subject in view outdoors with a 2.5 inch Clear LCD that reduces glare and reflections, and a built-in auto " Illumi-Light" for 1/10th the power consumption. There's also a color viewfinder, Power-Linked Operation, Night Alive, and 700X Super Digital Zoom with Spline Interpolation. Record HG digital stills at up to 1600 x 1200 to the SD/MMC card slot. There's also an accessory shoe and mic input with plug-in power. Be your own director with the power and performance of the GR-DF550.
