Product Description
The JVC GR-SXM320U VHS camcorder offers high performance and resolution mixed with versatility and ease-of-use. There's a 2.5" color LCD monitor for on-camera recording and playback. Digital picture stabilization assures steady recording - free from 'camera shake.' The unit includes rechargeable battery, AC adapter and shoulder strap. It features 6-omponent digital signal processing with Chroma Noise Reduction, Time Base Corrector, Luminance Noise Reduction, Horizontal Aperture Circuitry, Vertical Aperture Circuity, Variable g Circuitry, Animation and Timelapse. Animation lets you shoot video a frame at a time to make drawings and objects "move" on the tape, while Timelapse automatically records at set intervals so you can catch rare scenes, like a flower blooming, on tape (SP mode only via optional remote control).
Amazon.com Product Description
The JVC GR-SXM320U palm-size compact VHS-C camcorder offers 400x variable speed digital zoom and 16x optical zoom. This is ideal for catching action at sporting events or just at home in your backyard. The zoom is a variable-speed zoom triggered by finger pressure with numeric zoom ratio readout in the viewfinder/monitor. The GR-SXM320U includes a high-resolution 2.5-inch LCD color monitor with 112,000 pixels. The monitor rotates 270 degrees so you can view what you are recording from any angle. The camcorder has three recording modes and uses S-VHS recording to deliver up to 60 percent better resolution than standard models. For quality and economy, the S-VHS ET mode lets you take high-resolution videos using any VHS-C tape. For compatibility with any VHS video recorder, standard VHS is also available.

At the touch of a button, Super LoLux boosts low light sensitivity to less than 1 lux for needed performance in real-life shooting situations. The picture stabilizer gets rid of annoying picture shake. Your viewers will appreciate this feature during playback because it will make your recording easier to watch.

The VHS-C format tapes used in this camcorder are simply smaller-size VHS tapes. You can play your tapes in any VCR with the included cassette adapter. This feature also allows the manufacturer to make a compact, affordable camcorder. In case you need to travel away from an electrical outlet, the JVC GR-SXM320U includes a battery pack with a shooting capability of up to two hours. The camcorder has seven programmable auto exposure modes and digital special effects. The title generator features eight preset messages in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese.

A time-lapse capability allows you to record at preset intervals to catch slow motion action such as plant growth or cloud movement. You can also record in a special animation mode that creates the illusion of movement for an otherwise stationary scene when you shoot a series of slightly different poses. For editing features, the JVC GR-SXM320U offers digital wipes and fades, as well as a black fader and a quick review and retake function. Through the J terminal you can easily integrate your JVC camcorder with PC and multimedia peripherals to create a computer-controlled video-playback and image-capture system. The necessary control software comes supplied with select JVC digital camcorders. The accessories include a shoulder strap, compact VHS cassette playback adapter, and AC adapter and battery recharger.

3 out of 5 stars Does not have XP link!!!.......2002-10-24

Purchased this to replace Wizard that does not offer PC link with XP-pro. This one does not ALSO. I spoke to Sharp and they say it is not compatable with the "new" software. Number keys are small. Still a good value for the $.

4 out of 5 stars Solid organizer.......2002-08-06

This is a solid organizer for the money. It includes a PC backup cable (serial port only, sorry USB people.)

One thing that is not mentioned in the manual or on the Sharp website but that caused me days of headaches is that you must have either zero or more than one entry before you try and link with a PC. I entered one phone number as a test and then spent 2 days trying to figure out why the organizer and PC wouldn't talk to each other. Then I reset the organizer and it worked. Entered one phone entry again and it stopped working. Then I entered a second phone entry and it started working again. This was very frustrating should have been documented. I tested on three different YO-270 units from different stores and all exhibited this behavior.

The backup cable is cleverly named so because the included software will only allow you to dump a backup file on your PC. With the included software, you can not synchronize with PC apps or even perform data entry on your PC. This was beginning to annoy me until I found this website:...

This "PC Interface Software" listed here is what is included with the unit. The "PC Link Software" is NOT included with the unit, but you can download it from here and it works fine for me... The "PC Link Software" makes data entry a whole lot easier. There are also Import and Export functions in the software that may allow some rudimentary synchronization with other PC software, but I have not tested that functionality.

All in all, a solid organizer and it would deserve five stars if the problem I mentioned was documented and if the "PC Link Software" was included with the unit.

4 out of 5 stars hi.......2001-11-29

i have not used this yet but i was thinking about getting this for my daughter she wanted a organizer with a speaker,dose this one come with a speaker

4 out of 5 stars Cool, but no PIM-sync capability.......2001-09-02

I bought this organizer but took it back when I realized it couldn't be syncronized with Outlook or other PIM apps. Too bad too, because it and other Sharp organizers are easy to use with the built in keyboard, and are loaded with features. Unfortunately, you can only backup the organizers data onto a Sharp personal organizer file on your hard disk. Buy this if you don't mind entering in all your own data.
