JVC has introduced the new JY-HM360 handheld HD camcorder.
The JY-HM360 is ideal for use by weddings, schools, conferences and event videographers. It features a 1/2.3-inch 18.9 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, offering high-resolution recordings. This sensor, when combined with the camcorder’s dynamic 19x F1.2 bright GT lens, provides excellent sensitivity with less noise, even in low-light environments. This makes it possible to record events, social functions or weddings without the need for additional lighting.
The camera is capable of supporting major file formats such as.MOV with Apple Final Cut ProTM, MP4 with XDCAM EX™ cameras and.MTS for AVCHD compatibility, as well as high-definition images in MPEG-2 35Mbps and AVCHD 28Mbps (progressive) format. Furthermore, the processor also supports H.264 video format in 50Mbps extreme high quality (XHQ) mode for virtually no block noise when capturing moving subjects.
The JY-HM360 features several functions including Face Recognition Auto Focus, Optical Image Stabilizer, and Beautiful Skin mode. Allocated to one of the seven user-customisable buttons, Beautiful Skin mode can be assigned for turning the feature on or off when shooting. There’s a seesaw lever to enable smooth zooming from very slow to high speed, and image parameters such as gamma and colour matrix, as well as other detail settings, can be customized and stored in both the camera’s internal memory and SDHC/SDXC card.
