JVC Announces GY-HM70 Shoulder-Mount ProHD Camcorder at $1,995 List
March 11, 2013

Sarasota, FL - JVC today announced the GY-HM70 ProHD shoulder-supported camcorder for delivering 60p full HD images and innovative features at a cost-effective price point. With a 12 megapixel CMOS imager, the GY-HM70 records 1920x1080 footage in AVCHD Progressive at 28 Mbps to dual solid-state memory cards. The new camcorder is scheduled for release in May with a list price of $1,995.

The GY-HM70 is equipped with a high-quality 29.5mm wide-angle GT lens that offers smooth 16x dynamic zoom performance. Veteran shooters will appreciate the camera's manual focus, iris, and shutter controls, as well as manual and automatic white balance. The camera also provides an optical image stabilizer, auto focus, and focus assist.

At the core of the GY-HM70 is its 1/2.3-inch 12 megapixel CMOS imager. When combined with JVC's advanced FALCONBRID high-speed processor, it captures, processes, and records 1080/60p, 1080/60i, and 480/60i (SD) footage at various bit rates to SDHC/SDXC memory cards. It also allows high-speed video recording for slow motion footage at 300 fps (720x480 resolution), and captures 12 megapixel still images.

JVC's unique, hot swappable dual battery system allows hours of continuous, uninterrupted shooting. For shoulder shooting, the GY-HM70 has a .24-inch LCOS color viewfinder, but it also includes a three-inch LCD flip-out touch screen display for tripod shots and playback. Audio features include a built-in zoom microphone, 3.5mm microphone input, and 3.5mm headphone jack.

“With the introduction of the GY-HM70, JVC immediately focuses on the entry-level professional video market with a very cost effective shoulder-mount camera,” said Craig Yanagi, JVC national marketing and brand manager. “At this price, and packed with innovative features, the GY-HM70 will appeal to various market segments where budget is limited but a full-sized camcorder is the preferred choice, such as schools and universities, as well as event and wedding videographers.” For the full list of GY-HM70 specs click here.
