In an industry where, suddenly, if you can’t record full HD and take stills with a CMOS sensor, you’re not in the game, JVC has still managed to pull out an impressive camcorder in the shape of the Everio X.
The X, or GZ-X900 as it’s also known, offers 9-megapixel pictures and 1080p HD at a weight of 298g but, most interesting of all, it features video capture at up to 500fps. That translates as 10x super slow motion speeds. It’ll be like watching the Tornado Camera in your own home movies.
It’s out in June complete with 5x zoom Minolta glassware, an HDMI 1.3 port and will record onto SDHC. Prices to follow.
