JVC Jumps into High-End Camcorder Market with GZ-HM1 HD Everio

Paul Lilly

There's a new flagship HD Everio video camera in town, and its name is GZ-HM1. According to JVC, this newcomer excels in three areas , including low light performance, camera shake compensation, and digital still quality, so even if you're hopped up on caffeine on an overcast day, presumably you'll still be able to take serviceable shots.

JVC says the low light performance is aided by a new 1/2.3-inch 10.62 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor that boosts sensitivity to four Lux, and that the camera shake compensation also occurs at wide angle settings and not just high zoom ratios.

Other features include Full HD 1920x1080 recording with 1080/60p output through HDMI, 10x optical zoom, up to ISO6400 sensitivity when shooting stills, a plethora of manual controls, a mic input, audio level control, headphone output, and high speed recording at up to 600 frames per second for ultra-slow motion playback.

The GZ-HM1 is available now for $1,200.
