Features of GY-HM70

  Catch Every Moment in Bright and Stunning Detail
Capture those special moments in stunning clarity and brightness with the on-board shooting capabilities of the GY-HM70. Brighter and faster than conventional lenses, the dynamic 16x F1.2 Bright Lens gives you professional results in low light environments, providing brilliant results when recording weddings, social functions, or other special events without the need for additional lighting. Low light sensitivity is further enhanced by the onboard features, which deliver clear images with precise colours when indoors or in dark situations. Housed in the prominent lens barrel, the 29.5mm GT Lens was developed specifically to guarantee
optimal results together with the 1/2.3-inch 12 Megapixel Back-illuminated CMOS sensor, yielding high resolution, high sensitivity, and excellent colour reproduction.


·  Flexible Recording Formats and Powerful Processing

With the kind of flexibility demanded for by professionals, the GY-HM70 covers all of the bases with both SD and HD production
workflows. Recording is possible in silky-smooth AVCHD Progressive 1920 x 1080 50p Full HD resolution as well as in standard definition, providing exceptional image quality and workflow versatility. This remarkable recording flexibility is supported by ALCONBRID™, JVC's high-speed processor for advanced video applications. Delivering tremendous processing power on a single chip, the on-board FALCONBRID™ engine processes large amounts of video pixel data at exceptional speeds. Even more, it is possible to shoot stills in 12 megapixel Ultra High Resolution, while stills


  AVCHD Format
HD Recording 1920 x 1080/50p 28Mbps
1920 x 1080/50i 24/17/12/5Mbps
SD Recording 720 x 576i 6/3Mbps
 

·  Shoot with Confidence Using Dual SD Card Slots and Automatic Card Slot Relay

For maximum flexibility and convenience, the GY-HM70 uses SDHC/SDXC recording media, the reliability and cost-effectiveness
of which makes it the most widely used media by professionals today. Failsafe shooting is further provided by the two onboard card
slots, ensuring you never miss a moment. When the card in slot A(B) is full, the camcorder switches seamlessly and automatically to the
card loaded into slot B(A)*. Also, if the card in slot A encounters an error during a shoot, recording will automatically switch to slot B by Auto Recovery Mode.
* Cards are not hot swappable.


·  Unprecedented Recording Times with Dual Battery Mounts

Equipped with dual battery mounts, the GY-HM70 makes sure that you outlast those extended shoots, giving you long-lasting battery power to capture every moment from start to finish. Two battery mounts not only give you double the recording time initially, they are also hot swappable. This means you can keep exchanging batteries without any break in recording. Marking an industry-first in camcorder battery technology, JVC delivers peace of mind in everlasting power.
* Only one battery supplied
