JVC announced yesterday, a new top-end JVC HD Everio video camera, the GZ-HM1 HD Everio. The new camcorder offers a full slate of technologies to optimize picture quality and an array of manual controls for creative flexibility. The GZ-HM1 provides superior results thanks to a new CMOS sensor that boosts sensitivity to four Lux, it offers 1920 x 1080 Full HD video, with 1080/60p output through the HDMI connection and 64GB of internal storage and an SD/SDHC card slot.
JVC uses prism technology to provide effective results at the wide angle end of the zoom range and delivers real 10 megapixel stills for detailed images. The GZ-HM1’s 1/2.3-inch 10.62 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor dramatically increases sensitivity, enabling recording of high quality images even in low-light locations. The camera also uses KONICA MINOLTA HD LENS which is currently one of the world’s smallest and slimmest HD lenses, and offers 10x optical zoom. The JVC GZ-HM1 will be available in March for $1,199.95.
