The smart folks at Genius recently kicked off their foray into the camcorder business with the launch of the G-Shot HD575T. The G-Shot is a hybrid high-definition touchscreen optical camcorder with "one of the slimmest" profiles around, the company claims, but despite its comparatively thin stature, it's capable of shooting Full HD 1080p video and snapping up to 16-megapixel still images with software interpolation. It has a 3-inch LTPS touchscreen display that folds in and out as needed, as well as rotates. If you tap the screen before snapping a photo, you can make brightness adjustments with... Read more...
Tough? Rugged? Waterproof? Check, check, check. Sony's new Bloggie Sport camera has all of that, and it's trying hard to move on and prove that while FlipVideo is gone, there's still a market for portable, pocket-friendly camcorders. This new one shoots 1080p at 30 frames per second, and it'll capture 5.1 megapixel still shots. It's waterproof, dustproof and shockproof, and there's a 2.7" touchscreen that can be operated underwater. There's 4GB of internal memory (enough for around two hours of video), as well as an HDMI output. No word on price yet, but there's a video below showcasing the features.... 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...
What if Sony popped out a new Bloggie camcorder, with Wi-Fi? According to a drop in the FCC, that may be on deck. Pocket camcorders have shipped with Wi-Fi before, and Sony's Bloggie line has seen a great deal of success through the years, and it looks that the next one may be the barnburner that makes us forget about the death of Flip Video. The MHS-TS55, as it's called, could bring 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi to the company's portable HD camcorder line, and while Sony hasn't confirmed it, the FCC's word is as good as gold, usually. The FCC filing also points out an HDMI output, and it's expected to also... 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...
For every gem you find on YouTube, there are at least a dozen crappy videos recorded in standard definition. It's not YouTube's fault -- the Google owned video sharing site came into existence before affordable hand-held camcorders capable of shooting HD videos emerged. But as long as companies like Toshiba keep releasing high-tech gear at low-tech prices, we expect to see higher quality videos posted online. Take Toshiba's newly introduced Camileo P100 and B10 camcorders, for example. As the more expensive of the two, the P100 will only set rookie directors back $180 (MSRP), yet it offers Full...

Now that Flip Video is out, other companies are swooping in to take over where Cisco left off. If you're still in the market for a new pocket camcorder, Sony has an interesting new option up for sale: the Bloggie 3D. Though announced already, the 3D-enabled device has just gone on sale in recent days, giving those in the U.S. the opportunity to capture 3D content with a device that's hardly larger than the palm of one's hand. The Bloggie 3D runs $249.99, and that gets you a 2.4" 3D display and of course, the 3D recording capabilities. But here's what we want to know: is 3D seriously hanging around,... Read more...
Flip Video may be over and done with, but there are plenty of options out there for those who still believe in the form factor. Samsung Electronics has one of those alternatives, as the "multi-proof" W200 pocket cam seeks to bring Full HD video filming to those who just need a camcorder in their front pocket. It features a 5MP BSI CMOS sensor, an f2.2 lens, a rugged shell and the ability to capture video underwater. The W200’s anti-water drop coating also means that the LCD screen will stay free of condensation, even in damp conditions, so you can film without wiping the screen. The lens... Read more...

3D has clearly taken the consumer electronics universe by storm, and while the jury is still out on whether or not it's a fad that'll become a lasting trend, there's no question that companies are jumping onboard the bandwagon. GoPro is no different; they're best known for creating head-mountable cameras, and now they're adding something special to their popular 1080p camera headset: 3D! The 3D HERO system is an add-on module for existing 1080p HD owners, where they can strap two 1080p HD HERO cameras together to form a single 1080p 3D camera. The company claims that this setup makes the smallest... 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...
