JVC unveils rugged all weather camcorders
JVC today announced three new rugged, weather-proof Everio camcorders- GZ-R70, GZ-R30 and GZ-R10. The three new JVC Everio camcorders feature JVC’s Quad-Proof structure – water resistance to a depth of 5 meters/16.4 feet, the ability to withstand a drop from 1.5 meters/4.9 feet, as well as dust-proof and freeze-proof down to –10˚C/14˚F – packaged in a familiar camcorder form factor. And rounding out their all-weather versatility, they float. The new models also feature an internal, long-life battery – 4.5 hours on a single charge – for even more versatility.
The definitive advantage that Everio camcorders offer over smartphones is quality optics. Everio is equipped with a large-caliber KONICA MINOLTA HD LENS with high-quality 40x Optical Zoom. With 60x Dynamic Zoom, the 2.5M Back-illuminated CMOS Image Sensor maintains the picture’s HD resolution even when exceeding the optical zoom range. Other feature includes audio that zooms with the picture, and compatibility with third-party editing software, including iMovie and Final Cut Pro X.
The three new JVC Everio camcorders are differentiated by internal memory capacity, the inclusion of a built-in LED light in the GZ-R70 and GZ-R30, and the GZ-R10 is available in black, blue and red.
