JVC Rolls Out Everio X Dual Use Camera

JVC has announced a new dual-use camera that shoots high definition video and high resolution digital still images. The new hybrid Everio GZ-X900, or Everio X, is a small, light, all-in-one camera that promises the powerful shooting combination of 1920 x 1080 Full HD AVCHD video and 9-megapixel still photos, plus creative shooting functions such as slow motion video and high speed “motor drive” still photography.

JVC said the new Everio X was designed for the consumer who wants to shoot high quality digital stills and HD video, but wants the convenience of a single camera.

Slow motion video recording is a key Everio X feature. The camera’s high-speed recording function shoots ultra-slow motion video. Any one of three speeds – 120 frames per second (fps), 300fps and 600fps – can be selected; the faster the recording speed, the slower the playback motion. With this function, approximately 2.4-second bursts of video are recorded that are then played back over a period of up to 24 seconds, a maximum of 20 times longer than normal speed.

The Everio GZ-X900 will be available in June for $1000.
