Other Features
2.7" Widescreen LCD screen and .27" Wide EVF: The LCD screen and EVF let you see exactly what your camcorder is recording, and what your TV will display later. The LCD provides a 211,000-pixel image, while the .27" EVF provides a 123,000-pixel image.

Electronic built-in lens cover: To aid in easy, one-hand operation of the HV20, it comes equipped with a built-in lens cover that automatically opens when the camcorder is turned on and closes when turned off. It also eliminates the inconvenience of a dangling or lost lens cover.

USB 2.0 Full Speed: Allows for DV streaming and ultra-fast transfer of movies and photos.

Analog to Digital Converter
Analog Digital Image Converter: This function lets you feed the analog signal from your TV, VCR or analog camcorder to your HV20 to convert to digital for recording on DV tape. The HV20 can also be used as a signal converter by connecting it between an analog device and another digital device.

Microphone/Headphone Terminal: You can attach an external microphone to the HV20 with this terminal, as well as use it for a headphone for audio monitoring during a shoot. Manual audio level adjustment gives you complete control over the sound you record.
