JVC finally announces HD Everio!!!

Well guys if anyone out there has been waiting for a truly "tapeless" solution to high def videos- JVC has the answer by April 07-
(the kicker is it uses native FULL HD res and has a progressive sensor!!)

but, unfortunately, it isn't capturing at full HD res (it only saves in full HD res)...

" Each of the three CCDs measures 1/5" with a gross pixel count of only 570K (1016 x 558). "

Is that sensor size? Because the HVX's sensor size is 960x540 and uses, I believe, pixel shift, to go to 720p and 1080i cleanly.

from the article...

"This translates to an effective pixel count of approximately 530K (976 x 548)."

while it may do it cleanly, it's still doubling (shifting, whatever) and not as high res as a native HD sensor (lower res than the canon XL/XH, for example). but, this probably accounts for the "low" price

Interesting. I'd like to see this camera. Canon's http://hdvinfo.net/articles/canon/hv10overview.php HV10 apparently has a true 1920x1080 CMOS sensor! That would make it the largest sensor in the sub-$10,000 HD camera line-up.

Did you guys notice it shoots to a modified mpeg-2 stream with a higher data rate than HDV! This camera is exactly what I've been looking for- of course JVC pioneers these things then Canon & Panasonic eclipse it with their versions......I'll get one the minute it's in stock........goodbye bulky Firestore FS4 HD and Canon XH-A1!

(Of course when Canon or Panasonic brings out their versions- I'll switch~LOL)

<Let's hope there are no issues with highlight clipping which seems to be a JVC issue with all their cams- to a degree>

yes, I agree - the canon hv10, writing to full HD res would be pretty nice... :-)

it's 'only' 5mbps more (30mpbs vs 25mbps) - I wonder if they had to bump the rate up due to the the extra resolution it's writing to (1920x1080 vs 1440x1080 for HDV) versus getting better motion from it...

I'm wondering if it shoots to m2t files or m2v for demuxing.....it's also slated for use with a BluRay buner for video archival- interesting setup JVC is going to put out- can't wait to see what it shoots like!

(The lens is supposedly of specs from their broadcast div)

I wonder if a "mic-in jack" will be present?

This already kicks the HD1/10's butt, so I'm kind of excited about it. Good behind-the-scenes camera, or a good primary camera.

Probably street lower, and over time, much lower. The HD1 still has an MSRP of $3100 or so, but you can pick one up for half that or so.

The HC1 finally gets a worthy replacement even though it’s from a different company. We still have yet to see other camcorders such as from Sony and Panasonic.
