JVC has just announced the launch of the world's smallest digital-video camcorder. The pocket sized camera, with a mouthful of a name -- Miniature GR-DVp3/DVPl- uses MiniDV-standard tape and an SD Multimedia card to capture still images and MP3s (condensed music player system).

The tiny camera integrates a digital still-camera function, the ability to email video clips in MPEG4 format and has MP3 sound effects built in. It also offers 10x optical and 100x digital zoom, as well as playback controls. The camera switches on and off when the view-finder or the two inch high -resolution LCD monitor are opened or closed.

According to JVC, the colour bandwith is almost three times that of analogue video and the video camera has a CD-quality sound-recording system in either two-channel, 16 bit sound at 48kHz; or four channel 12-bit sound at 32KHz.

UK prices for this miniature wonder range from [pound]1,100 to 1,300.
