JVC GZ-V500 overview

  • 1Description

The compact GZV500BE Full HD Camcorder (PAL) from JVC weighs only 14oz yet still manages to pack a host of features including intelligent auto, low-light shooting, and a built-in touch panel LCD. In addition to high-definition recording, the GZV500BE is equipped with high-speed video capture so you can stop the action with slow motion playback and not lose any of the clarity. Additionally, you can take 10MP still images at any point during video recording. Thanks to the camera's image stabilization the photos will come out clear and blur-free.

The camera features JVC's Super LoLux which illuminates the scene in low light settings so you can shoot almost anywhere and still get accurate colors. Additionally, the GZV500BE includes optical image stabilization so that when you use the camera's 10x optical zoom you'll still enjoy blur-free video throughout the whole range. Also included with the 10x lens in mind is the Zoom Microphone. The camera changes the microphone's focal point to match the picture so that when you zoom in the microphone's focus area is smaller and wider when you zoom out.

The GZV500BE includes video editing software that lets you personalize your videos with text, music, and transition effects. It also provides an easy way to trim your video clips to maximize their impact by cutting out the unnecessary parts. Additionally, the camera provides easy uploading to Facebook and YouTube. Other features include time-lapse recording which records a frame at intervals of 1 to 80 seconds, and Auto REC which only begins recording when a subject enters the detection area and stops after 5 seconds of no activity.

Face Recognition for Shooting Convenience
The Smile Meter keeps an eye on how much your subjects are smiling, giving you a % display. With Smile Shot, the camera automatically takes a picture (in video mode) every time the smile % reaches a certain level. It's a great way to take group shots filled with smiling faces. Some models even feature Pet Detection function that detects and tracks the faces of dogs and cats, capturing them with the best setting possible. And it automatically takes stills when they face the camera directly
Face Sub-Window
Touch on a face on the LCD screen, and that face is automatically shown enlarged in a corner of the screen. So you can record both a group shot and a close-up of someone at the same time
Animation Effect
Have fun decorating while you shoot. Add stamps wherever you touch. Or spice up faces with decorations that automatically position themselves correctly. You can even add hand-written titles and captions using a provided pen as part of the recording too
Time-Lapse REC
Time-Lapse REC records one frame at a time at set intervals (1 to 80 sec). So you can watch movement that's hours long in just a few seconds when played back. It's great when you want to observe an event that takes place over a long period of time or to record unique-looking scenes in a creative way
Auto REC
When a subject enters the detecting area, recording starts automatically. Recording continues as long as there is movement within the area and automatically stops after 5 seconds of no movement. You can use it like a surveillance camera or to observe something. Discover new ways to use the camera
