JVC has a follow up on the 4K camera they showed at CES 2012, but first, two new cameras, the GY-HM600 and the GY-HM650. Both have a small form factor, and can be handheld, so first we’ll cover the GY-HM600.
This ProHD camera features a 23x zoom lens and combines it with great low-light performance. TheGY-HM600($4,700) goes for versatility by working in multiple file formats like XDCAM EX and Final Cut Pro (MP4 and MOV respectively.) It will make use of SD cards and can relay them for continuous recording even after they fill up. A second function here is to simultaneously record to multiple cards so as to provide a client with an on the spot copy or give yourself a backup.
