Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Impressive spec sheet...........at 36mbps it outpaces JVC's own new HM100U!
"This changes everything" might be applicable with this small wonder-cam.....can't wait for a review.

(There are sample videos floating around- they look incredibly sharp and detailed with very nice color....I hope the IS is good!)

B&H says available this month........I'm ready!

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

It's form factor is very similar to the Sony DSC-F717: https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikiped...-shot_DSC-F717

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

I'll be most interested in seeing how the slow-mo footage looks.

300fps is plenty fast to do some really nice work for action scenes.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

About the sensor size, is this between a 2/3" and 4/3rds sensor?

Agreed. I'll buy one in a heartbeat if it's 300fps at 720p or better... they *conveniently* don't tell you anywhere what resolution it shoots 300fps at though. Could easily be sub-VGA and still look great on their website. it does look very good compared to other 300fps cameras though.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Actually the form factor resembles a camera/camcorder they had awhile back called the JVC MC500 (and later MC505).......they didn't copy Sony's F505 series as they had this body around the same time (I owned a few- back in the days of IBM's Microdrives!)
See here; http://www.infosyncworld.net/2005/03..._mc500e_01.jpg

As for the 300fps- I believe it shoots that at 640X360- I recall something like that!

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Bummer on the low rez output for the slow-mo. Thats not going to be good enough. 720p would work but VGA rez wont.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

This must be the first of the Falcon Brid cameras. I've wondered when they'd come out.
I like the design.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Yes, this chip is reported to be able to handle 4K2K footage .....I guess that's why it can easily output 1080P60 and all those other super-fast high-megapixel frame-rate burst photos!

Check out the detail at 0:33 seconds of this clip:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMWPS0xIoxY

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Looks really nifty.

I'm just going to put it out there that bit rate isn't everything.

A Canon 7D vs Canon XF300, both are close to 50mbps, one is h.264 the other is Mpeg 2. On paper the h.264 codec should completely kick the mpeg2 codec in the rear end.

Yet everyone who does DSLR work knows that the codecs are the greatest. And at the same time the XF codec gets great reviews from some people who view good video quality is next to godliness.

Bit rate isn't everything. The large picture of bit rate, compression, color space... pretty much how well the codec was put together really matters the most.


I'll chime in that if it was 300fps for 720p I'd be really excited. Even 240fps or 180fps at 720p would be exciting.

Thanks Steve. It's getting there but not yet. The Nikon J1 is about that speed at that res I think. (I'm in the market for cheap high speed, can you tell? :)

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Dylan, you're welcome.
Zach agreed completely.....my GH2 is hacked and producing well over 100mbps video and I absolutely love it........it's not a camcorder in any traditional sense and this JVC intrigues me more of a "camcorder" device and the relatively high bitrate is impressive....but agreed not everything; the codec and other factors all play in..........still super interested in getting one if the IS is good and if the footage doesn't display blown highlights which in my experience has always been a problem for JVC camcorders.
