JVC has announced its latest hybrid camera, a high-resolution model capable of taking both still and video footage at the same time.
The JVC GC-PX10 features a 12.75 megapixel CMOS sensor featuring back-side illumination technology for improved low-light performance. Burst shooting is available at 8.3 megapixel resolution which allows the camera to take up to 50 frames per second for up to 130 frames, while dropping to a VGA resolution - 0.3 megapixels - allows the camera to capture 250 frames per second for up to two hours of slow-motion footage.
It's in video mode that the JVC GC-PX10 is most impressive, however: as well as the ability to capture Full HD 1080p video at a high bitrate of 36Mbit/s, the camera can simultaneously snap high-quality stills,
The CMOS sensor sits behind a Konica Minolta lens featuring 19x dynamic zoom and optical image stabilisation with advanced image stabiliser technology, 32GB of internal storage, a tiltable 3in touch-screen display for review and control, and HDMI output for slideshows and video playback on an external monitor or TV.
The design of the body, JVC claims, is L-shaped to evoke a similar feel to an SLR camera, but with significantly less bulk and a focus on video capabilities.
UK pricing has yet to be confirmed, but the JVC GC-PX10 is confirmed as launching in the US later this month priced at $900 (around £582.) Which seems pretty high for a camera without an interchangeable lens system.
