Sure, there were all those cool HDD camcorders shown at CES this year, but sometimes you have to get back to basics. Like JVCs line of five MiniDV camcorders, all of them are a bit easier to use, with an Auto button that switches you between manual and automatic operation. All five also have a new on-screen menu system that sorts menu layers by category. Four of these models come with a 680K-pixel CCD, and the GR-D650 has 1.33 megapixels with a built-in 1.3X tele-conversion lens along with JVC s Low Light Plus technology which combines an F1.2 lens with 3D noise reduction that the company claims reduces visible video noise by approximately 30 percent. Prices range from $300 to $450.
