Chris,

This camcorder looks really interesting. Will it record on SD card?

Thanks, Jim

Hi Jim, the official press release at New Flagship JVC Camera Designed to Capture Fast-Moving Action at DV Info Net does not indicate the recording medium, but I can't imagine that it would not be SDHC or SDXC. I'll try to get a clarification.

At the 1K price point, it will be definitely be worth checking out for me. It's looks to be well designed. 1.2 lens and three-inch tiltable LCD monitor with hood included. I will be interested in seeing that optional viewfinder and how much extra that is.

It looks like the follow up to the PX10.

With those fast frame rates and at that price point I'm definitely interested (for some technical/industrial/scientific client applications).

Thanks, Glen. Is that LCD/VF button to select one or the other?

Also, it looks like a mic input, headphones jack, and maybe a usb or mini-hdmi connection?

Found this on Reuters:

"AVCHD, MP4 and MOV format recording is supported, including iFrame compatible 720p.
In MOV mode the audio is recorded in Linear PCM for highest quality and usability in
post-production".

The Reuters UK release is more informative than the one from JVC America, so I've incorporated both into the same page on our DVi News feed located at:

-- pics updated too, thanks Jim and Glen!

Re: Procision JVC GC-PX100 Camcorder announced at CES2013

I have the PX10. I took it to the beach and videotaped surfers, seagulls, etc. at 300fps. Slo-mo is fun, but the PX10 video is SD and looks meh.
With this new cam shooting HD, I can see this being a fun little camera, a poor man's FS700.

Anyone wanna buy a gently used PX10?

Most DSLRs have a button where you can switch from the monitor/VF. It looks like this camera does the same.

Looks fun , and you can't beat the price. Of course, if the image is soft at normal frame rates, or if the high speed stuff is unusable, not sure if it's worth much...

Of course, if the image is there and high speeds are usable, then this camera would make an awful nice one-two punch with a larger frame camera like the Sony VG20 or Canon 4ti.

Anxiously awaiting footage from this little camera for sure.
