JVC Everio GZ-HD7

JVC Everio GZ-HD7

The new JVC Everio GZ-HD7 ($TBA; April) lays claim to fame as being the first consumer full high definition 3-CCD camcorder capable of shooting and recording full HD images (1920 x 1080i). This hard drive-based camcorder uses three 1/5-inch 16:9 progressive scan CCDs designed for HD use in a diagonally offset pixel configuration. It also sports a Fujinon lens used in broadcast video cameras and a super high-end processor, among other features.

  • Nikon D40

    With all the focus being put on prosumer digital SLR cameras, it's about time someone designed one for the point-and-shoot crowd. With the capabilities of a dSLR and the ease-of-use of a pocket shooter, the compact and lightweight Nikon D40 ($600; Dec. 06) is ready to go with a 6.1-megapixel sensor, nearly instant startup, the ability to shoot 2.5 pictures per second, in-camera image editing, and a simplified menu system with built-in help. It's got a 2.5 inch LCD, eight preset modes, SD storage, and a 18-55mm Nikkor lens. The perfect model for a photography novice looking to make the jump to an SLR.

  • Nikon Lens Pen Cleaning System

    We've said before on Uncrate that a camera is really only as good as its lens, and that lens won't do you much good if it's covered in smudges and dust. The Nikon Lens Pen Cleaning System ($8) is a simple, easy-to-use lens-cleaning system. One end holds a retractable brush that takes care of wiping any dust or debris away, while the other end polishes out
    smudge marks. It's highly portable, and
    will work on other optics as well — such
    as binoculars and telescopes.
