The JVC Everio GZ-R440DUS Quad-Proof HD Camcorder, which is orange in color, is capable of recording HD AVCHD video at a resolution of 1080i60 at bit rates of up to 24 Mbps. The Everio GZ-R440DUS is constructed with a durable camera body designed by JVC called Quad-Proof, which makes it capable of capturing your experiences regardless of the weather.

This tough camcorder can withstand water depths of up to 16 feet, shocks from falls of up to 5 feet, dust, and temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit. The camera’s back-illuminated 2.5MP CMOS sensor works in conjunction with JVC’s Falconbird image processor to record 1920 x 1080 HD video onto SD media cards or the camera’s own 4GB of memory storage space. Taking still photographs is possible in two modes, at resolutions of up to 10 megapixels or 2 megapixels.

The Konica Minolta HD lens found in the Everio GZ-R440DUS has both an optical zoom of 40 times and a digital zoom of 60 times. When the camera is held by a hand, advanced image stabilization (AIS) helps lessen the amount of wobble that occurs.
