Prior to CES 2012, the world was without a handheld 4K camcorder. JVC took care of that in quick order by unveiling its new GY-HMQ10, a handheld camcorder that captures, records, and plays video images at four times the resolution of high definition televisions. The GY-HMQ10 has a 1/2-inch CMOS image sensor with 8.3 million active pixels. It delivers real-time 3840x2160 footage at 24p, 50p, or even 60p.
JVC is banking on you being ready to stop griping about the 3D revolution and being a part of it instead. That's the idea behind the new JVC GS-TD1, supposedly the world's first consumer class full HD 3D camcorder. The GS-TD1 comes with two imaging sensors to capture three-dimensional images in similar fashion to how your eyeballs process the world around them.
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.
JVC's new Everio GZ-HD620 camcorder isn't just easy to lug around, it also happens to be the smallest HD HDD camcorder money can buy. The compact body measures just 53mm x 63mm x 115mm, and the whole thing weighs just 270g, making it the lightest HD HDD camcorder on the block as well.
Despite its small frame, the new Everio boasts a 1/4.1-inch, 3.32 megapixel CMOS sensor and a 30x optic zoom Konica Minolta HD lens with 200x digital zoom and Backside Illumination (BSI).
Other notable specs include a 2.7-inch LCD screen, a microsSD/SDHC slot, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video format support, Dolby Digital 2-channel audio, both USB and HDMI ports, and component and AV outputs.
The new model will be available tomorrow in Japan in black, red, and silver. No word yet on when JVC will start shipping the GZ-HD620 the U.S. market or for how much, but we wouldn't be surprised to see this one show up at CES next month.
3D displays aren’t high on the list of things probable to be the next major form of home entertainment, but that hasn’t bothered JVC one bit. They’ve just announced their first 3D projector designed for home theaters, the DLA-RS2.
The projector won’t require any glasses; instead it uses D-ILA projection and stereoscopic video processing to present a 1080p 3D adventure.
Details are few and far between on the projector at the moment, but it has been confirmed that SENSIO 3D technology is at the heart, and it will provide a 30,000:1 contrast ratio. While the projector will require 3D content to make 3D images, it will be also compatible with DVD and Blu-ray discs until those become more common.
No word yet on the price, but it will be ready to take home sometime in 2009.
With its stylish square lens hood and beautiful design, the HD7 just begs you to pick it up and start shooting. We especially like its focus ring (it’s just like what’s on pro lenses), which you can use to manually focus the lens. However, we don’t much care for the lens cover that makes you shift a lever to move it out of the way. Nor were we impressed with its optical image stabilization, which didn’t seem to do much of anything. We also didn’t care for the break in the audio between each shot when we played back output via HDMI on our HDTV.
