Look, we don't want to know how you're going to use a 34x optical zoom on a camcorder, just know that such a beast is now available. That's right, JVC's latest consumer camcorder -- the GR-D750 -- brings what JVC claims to be a "world's highest" optical zoom to the game. It also packs more mundane features such as recording to miniDV in 16:9 or 4:3 formats, a 2.7-inch LCD, and the low-light shooting capabilities JVC is known for. As a member of the "baby movie" series, we guess that zoom is meant to keep tabs on the the robots we use to babysit our kids
