JVC GC-QX3U Review

Reading time: 5 - 8 minutes
Submitted by admin on January 15, 2009 – 10:59 pmNo Comment

The GC-QX3U is the newest, state-of-the-art, digital still camera from JVC. The 3.34 Mega Pixel CCD allows for high quality pictures at resolutions up to 2032 X 1536.
Pro-Still Technology offers several modes that improve picture even further when photographing stationary subjects.
The 6 Mega Pro-Still mode uses advanced pixel shifting to create an even higher resolution image equivalent to over 6 mega pixels. NR Pro-Still can be used to dramatically reduce picture noise by up to 9db.
DR Pro-Still allows digital stills that approach the same wide latitude of conventional film by creating separate exposures for highlight & shadow areas. Then these separate exposures are combined. This, in effect, triples the cameras dynamic range.
The GC-QX3U offers maximum creativity & convenience with collage modes, video e-mail capability, auto flash and a 200,000 pixel 2" TFT View Screen..
This JVC digital still camera is easy to connect via USB terminal, and both Windows & Apple drivers are provided. A special high speed connection is also offered for the matching JVC GV-SP2 printer.

More Information
Model Name:
Notes & Features: Special effects Black and White*, Sepia*, and Negi-Posi (*applicable during playback) Camera has unique Pro modes: One doubles resolution using a pixel-shift technique, another increases dynamic range by multi-sampling, a third decreases noise, also by double-sampling.



Pros: It's small and has many functions, and the discs hold a lot of pictures.
Cons: It is expensive because it is a relative novelty, and do not get it wet.
The Bottom Line: Most people would find this to be a camera to suit all your needs. Just read and follow the directions and don't get it wet.
