NEW STANDARD FOR AFFORDABLE
PRODUCTION WITH GY-HM70 CAMCORDER
- WAYNE, NJ (March 11,
Professional Products Company, a division of JVC Americas Corp.,
today announced the GY-HM70 ProHD shoulder-supported camcorder,
which delivers 60p full HD images and innovative features at a cost
effective price point. With a 12 megapixel CMOS imager, it records
1920x1080 footage in the AVCHD Progressive format at 28 Mbps to dual
solid-state memory cards.
- The GY-HM70 is equipped with a high quality
29.5mm wide-angle GT lens that offers smooth 16x dynamic zoom
performance. Veteran shooters will appreciate the camera's manual
focus, iris, and shutter controls, as well as manual and automatic
white balance. The camera also provides an optical image stabilizer,
auto focus, and focus assist.
- At the core of the GY-HM70 is its 1/2.3-inch
12 megapixel CMOS imager. When combined with JVC's advanced
FALCONBRID high-speed processor, it captures, processes, and records
1080/60p, 1080/60i, and 480/60i (SD) footage at various bit rates to
SDHC/SDXC memory cards. It also allows high-speed video recording
for slow motion footage at 300 fps (720x480 resolution), and
captures 12 megapixel still images.
- JVC's unique, hot swappable dual battery
system allows hours of continuous, uninterrupted shooting. For
shoulder shooting, the GY-HM70 has a .24-inch LCOS color viewfinder,
but it also includes a three-inch LCD flip-out touch screen display
for tripod shots and playback. Audio features include a built-in
zoom microphone, 3.5mm microphone input, and 3.5mm headphone jack.
- “With the introduction of the GY-HM70, JVC
immediately focuses on the entry-level professional video market
with a very cost effective shoulder-mount camera,” said Craig
Yanagi, JVC national marketing and brand manager. “At this price,
and packed with innovative features, the GY-HM70 will appeal to
various market segments where budget is limited but a full-sized
camcorder is the preferred choice, such as schools and universities,
as well as event and wedding videographers.”
- The GY-HM70 has an MSRP of $1,995 and will be
available in May 2013.
