The new compact PV-GS19 digital video camcorder is a full-featured model that incorporates a powerful optical zoom, up to 24x. This camcorder allows you to be up close no matter how far way you may be.

Among the other innovative features included in this is the easy to use one-touch navigation. A convenient thumb wheel lets the user quickly access major functions such as JPEG playback, memory card recording and tape recording while a new joystick allows easy navigation of the controls using the thumb only.

The PV-GS19 was developed to maximize the quality of the video recording by concentrating on those features that consumers will use most often. One such feature is the image-enhancing MagicPix that creates rich videos under low-light conditions. An Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) system compensates for hand and camcorder jitter.

A digital still camera feature can be used to snap still images and save them to an SD Memory Card, while USB capability provides a convenient way to transfer digital video and still images to a PC for archiving, e-mailing and more.


MiniDV: The MiniDV format records high-quality digital video onto small tapes, allowing for an exceptionally compact camcorder body.

Digital still mode: Use your camcorder as a camera to shoot digital images on SD memory cards-perfect for email.

2.5" LCD: This 2.5" LCD screen delivers a clear picture of the action during recording and playback.

Zoom: The enormous 24x optical zoom lets you get up close while you're shooting, and the additional 800x digital zoom lets you hone in on the details before or after shooting.

Image stabilization: The image stabilization system keeps movies steady and smooth.

Soft skin mode: Smooth out skin in close-up shots to make every subject look great.

Zoom microphone: Make sure your movies sound as good as they look. The zoom microphone follows the optical zoom so your sound stays with the subject, not the videographer.
