JVC With Two MiniDVs for 2008: The GR-D850 and GR-D870

January 6, 2008 - Amid a flood of camcorder announcements today at CES, JVC announced their new MiniDV lineup. MiniDV camcorders now litter the budget market with little innovation. However, JVC may have managed to infuse some life into the category. The GR-D870 ($249.95 MSRP) and GR-D850 ($229.95 MSRP) are both compact and highly affordable camcorders that suit shooters looking for longer record times and reliable, achievable media. New features this year include Dual Recording (simultaneous video and still capture) and Live Slow (slow motion).
