JVC's GR-D870 MiniDV Camcorder, the step-up from the D850, provides for those who love the tape format along with giving you still image capture directly to SD/MMC cards (sold separately). If you want to capture stills while recording video you can utilize Panasonic's Dual Record mode for simultaneous video and still capture. Another defining feature of the 870, Live Slow, lets you record video in slow motion with real time audio.
Looking at the basic functions of the camera, the 870 has a 1/6" CCD image sensor, 2.7" wide LCD screen, and 35x optical zoom. An Auto Illumination light gives low-lit scenes more pop while the Data Battery lets you know how much time is left before needing to change batteries. The camera also features an Auto LCD Backlight, a Stick Control for one-finger management of menus and manual settings, and 3-Dimension Noise Reduction, among many other great features.
