In the world of action cameras, GoPro currently rules the roost. But there's always room for competition, and JVC is hoping to steal a bit of the market share with an updated version of its own tough-as-nails, go-anywhere recording machine. The upgraded GC-XA2 ADIXXION was announced today, offering a water-, shock-, dust- and freeze-proof chassis. In terms of specification improvements, they include 1920 x 1080 60p/50p Progressive Full HD recording, and 1280 x 720 high-speed recording at 120fps/100fps for 4x slow-motion playback. Other upgrades include a brighter and wider-angle optical lens, improved... Read more...
Wi-Fi in cameras and camcorders? Seems like a pipe dream from just years ago, but more and more it's becoming a reality. JVC has been a company hot-to-trot with Wi-Fi enabled goods, and the new Everio GZ-EX250 is one of four new JVC camcorders with built-in Wi-Fi that allows video clips and still images to be emailed, wireless transfer of files to smartphones, and a range of other functions. The Wi-Fi feature is available on four 2012 Everio camcorders that combine the benefits of a conventional camcorder, such as superior image quality and a powerful zoom, with the communication convenience of...

4K? That's the buzz here at CES 2012, where a load of television makers were introduction (or at least showcasing) 4KTVs. JVC was on hand to display the "world's first handheld 4K camcorder," which is definitely fairly small given the video capabilities. It can capture, record and play video images at four times the resolution of HDTV. It's powered by JVC's Falconbrid large-scale integration (LSI) chip for high-speed signal processing and a 1/2-inch CMOS imager with 8.3 million active pixels, it delivers real-time 3840×2160 footage at 24p, 50p, or 60p. High resolution 4K still picture imaging... Read more...
Is this the Frankencam? Perhaps! JVC's new GC-PX10 is half video camera, half still shooter, and it's certainly one of the strangest hybrid cameras of any kind that we've ever seen. The company's marketing this as a camera that can offer pro-level performance and features, but in a semi-compact body. It shoots 12MP stills, 36Mbps progressive Full HD video, as well as super-slow motion. Sounds like an ideal all-in-one, really. At the heart of the GC-PX10 is JVC’s new FALCONBRID high speed imaging engine, first seen in JVC’s Full HD 3D camcorder, the GS-TD1. FALCONBRID is a single-chip... Read more...
The 3D boom is shaking the entire consumer electronics universe. First it was TVs, now it's gaming, and soon it'll be cameras and camcorders everywhere. JVC is claiming a world's first this week with the shipment of the GS-TD1, which is described as the planet's first Full HD 3D consumer camcorder. It uses two camera lenses and two imaging sensors (one for each lens) to capture three-dimensional images in the same way that human eyes work. The camcorder definitely looks strange compared to a conventional 2D camcorder, but it's not exactly huge. Definitely not the "shouldercam" your mother used... Read more...
At this point, it's becoming difficult to keep track of all of the pocket camcorder options out there. The trend that Pure Digital started with the Flip Video is still going strong, and JVC has just debuted the PICSIO GC-WP10 and GC-FM2 in order to join the crowds. Both of these units are highly similar, arriving in a few color options and easily slipping into a coat or pant pocket. These also record Full HD (1080p) content, with the main difference being the waterproof casing that wraps around the GC-WP10. Both camcorders offer a 4x digital zoom, support for 5MP still photos and four different... Read more...
The camcorders, they just keep rolling in. Much the same as clockwork, the Spring always means new camcorder releases, shipping just in time to catch mom or dad in a good mood and thinking about all the fun they could have shooting Little Johnny's ball games. JVC isn't one to let an opportunity pass by, so today the company is shipping a new top-end camcorder for those who just can't live with VGA quality video any longer.The GZ-HM1 ships with 64GB of storage onboard, ditching the tapes of yesteryear and going the flash NAND round. It's also designed to work well in low-light areas, and the SD/SDHC... Read more...
The camcorder sector has largely grown without too much attention over the past few years. It just hasn't emerged as one of those "must-have" mainstream technologies, whereas netbooks, smartphones and tablet PCs are just about everywhere. A lot of innovation is still going on with camcorders though, and while many of them are somewhat boring, this particular JVC caught out eye. The company just announced that this model (the Everio GZ-HM550) was shipping, and it definitely packs more features than your grandma's camcorder. Featuring a handheld form factor, a 10.6MP CMOS sensor, 32GB of integrated... Read more...
JVC introduced its first pocket flash memory camera, the PICSIO GC-FM1. This portable camera can capture 8 megapixel still images and 1080p Full HD video. To help minimize camera shake, the PICSIO offers image stabilization. The camera itself is about the size of a small cell phone. It comes in three colors: Black Ice, Blue Steel, and Purple Passion. Videos are recorded in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format and stored as .MOV files for easy sharing. PICSIO provides four video and still recording modes: Video Recording Mode Image Size Frame Rate 1080p 1440 x 1080p 30 fps 720p 1280 x 720p 60 fps VGA 640... Read more...
Wow, how the bandwagon has grown. Once upon a time, the Flip Video pocket camcorder was the only game in town. If you wanted a low-res camcorder with great battery life and a low price tag, particularly one suitable for shoving in your front pocket, that was the only way to go. Nowadays, there are lots more to choose from, with options from Sony, Samsung, Kodak and now JVC rounding things out.The new GC-FM1 is one of the more stylish pocket camcorders that we've seen, boasting a prism-like finish and a few bold colors to set itself apart from the plain competition. As for specs, the FM1 includes... Read more...
We know the raft of summer vacations is sadly over, but there's always a need to capture those Thanksgiving get-togethers and holiday pow-wows, right? JVC has today announced a new Full HD camcorder designed to hit the sweet spot between high-end cams and consumer-level SD cams. The HD Everio GZ-HM400, which records to an SD/SDHC card and includes 32GB of internal memory, features a 10.3MP CMOS sensor which can take 9MP still images and record video up to 600fps (for slow-motion playback). The core image sensing device for this camera is a 1/2.33-inch 10.3-megapixel CMOS sensor with Bayer Array... Read more...
Don't get us wrong, we know that JVC is a trusted name in consumer electronics, but it's hardly the first name we think of when considering a new TV. When big brands such as Sony, Samsung and Sharp soaking up the ad time, it's oftentimes hard to remember that JVC is in the mix. Of course, all that could change thanks to one set, but we'd argue the pricing needs to be aligned with current market demand before anyone eyes it seriously. Announced this past week at the CEDIA Expo in Atlanta, Georgia, the super sleek, super-thin LT-32WX50 is easily one of the thinnest televisions we've ever seen. It's... Read more...
