JVC Everio GZ-HM1 HD Camcorder Packs 64 GB

JVC has unveiled its new Everio GZ-HM1 camcorder at the high end of its Everio line, packing in 64 GB of onboard storage (plus an SDHC slot) along with improved image stabilization and improved low-light capability compared to the previous GM-HM400 model. The GZ-HM1 also has improved digital still capability, shooting “real” 10 megapixel digital stills with sensitivity all the way down to ISO 6400.

According to JCV, the GZ-HM1 features a new CMOS sensor that boosts sensitivity for four Lux, compared to non Lux in the previous GM-Hm400—the result is the ability to capture full 1080p high-definition video in low-light situations. JVC has also introduced improvements to its anti-shake technology that improve wide-angle performance, particularly when the user is tracking a subject with the camera.

But the features don’t stop there: the GZ-HM1 sports a Konica Minolta lens with a 10× optical zoom, 1080/60p HDMI output, microphone input, headphone output, and a complete range of manual controls that give videographers strong control over what they capture, and a top-mount accessory shoe for add-ons. For folks who want things a little less manual, the GZ-HM1 sports face detection, auto-record, a built-in flash, and one-touch export and upload to YouTube. The GZ-HM1 also supports time-lapse recording, and high-speed recording at up up to 600 fps.

According to JVC, the GZ-HM1 should be available now (well, “in March”) for a suggested retail price of $1,199.95.
