New JVC Video/Still Hybrid Camera Offers Pro-Level Performance and Features
WAYNE, NJ, October 3, 2011 – JVC today announced a new digital camera that uses a new high speed imaging engine to shoot both high quality digital still images and stunning Full HD video. The JVC GC-PX10 is a true hybrid camera that shoots 12 megapixel stills and Full HD 1920 x 1080/60p video. In addition, it offers such professional-level capabilities as 60 shots per second still image shooting, 300 frames-per-second video recording for high-quality super-slow motion and the ability to capture pristine still images from video.
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 technology with the processing power to allow the GC-PX10 to record Full HD progressive video at 36Mbps for rich, detailed images. In addition, the camera can shoot 8.3 megapixel stills while recording Full HD video for clear, high-quality still images from recorded video. The camera’s image sensor is a 1/2.3” 12.75 megapixel back-Illuminated CMOS sensor.
Digital still shooting in real time offers up to 12 megapixel resolution (4000 x 3000). An ISO6400 mode is available for increased sensitivity when shooting in dark environments. Rapid-fire still shooting of 8.3 megapixel (3840 x 2160) stills is possible at 60 shots-per-second, up to 130 shots total per burst, or 12 megapixel stills at 30 frames-per-second. This surpasses the capabilities of digital SLR cameras currently available.
For super-slow motion shooting, the GC-PX10 can shoot video at 300 frames-per-second. Image resolution is VGA (640 x 360), making it more than sufficient for online posting and viewing. But more importantly, this mode can be used for approximately two hours straight. So, to offer an extreme example, it’s possible to record an entire soccer game in super-slow motion.
Other features that will appeal to the serious shooter include optical image stabilization with JVC’s Advanced Image Stabilizer, 10X optical zoom (19x Dynamic Zoom with no image degradation when zoomed), KONICA MINOLTA HD LENS, a mode dial for both automatic and manual settings (white balance, aperture and shutter), microphone output and headphone input.
The camera offers 32GB of internal memory, SDXC/SDHC card slot, tiltable three-inch touch panel monitor, HDMI output and bundled LoiLoScope FX software for Windows®.
The JVC GC-PX10 will be available this month for $899.95.
