JVC 1080i camcorder

The upcoming HD Everio GZ-HD7 by JVC will be the company's first camcorder to record natively in 1080i, while being substantially cheaper than the 720p-limited GR-HD1US, priced at $3,500. The HD7 uses a 3CCD progressive-scan sensor, and can hold up to five hours of video on its 60GB hard drive, which is substantially larger than most consumer models. JVC is likewise promoting the camera's Fujinon lens, the first of its type to appear in a camera for the general market. Most Fujinon lenses are used for commercial and industrial purposes, such as medicine and TV broadcast. The HD7 should retail in April for $1,800.
