JVC ships low-light capable, 1080p Everio HM1

JVC GZ-HM1 camcorder arrives late

After missing its original March target, JVC on Tuesday said it had started shipping the Everio GZ-HM1. It captures at a native 1080p but specializes in capturing in low light; its 10.6-megapixel, back-illuminated CMOS sensor works in lighting as dim as four lux and can use light sensitivity as high as ISO 6,400. As a semi-pro camera, the HM1 gets manual controls over aperture, bracketing and shutter speed where useful.

The new Everio has a true 10X optical zoom and captures 10-megapixel stills as well as slow-motion video up to 600FPS at lower resolutions. All moving footage is captured in AVCHD (H.264) and can be exported either to sites like YouTube or a movie editor like iMovie without requiring transcoding. A large 64GB of flash storage is built-in and is supported by an SDHC slot for another 32GB.

Pricing hasn't changed on the camera since it was unveiled in January, as it should cost $1,200.
