Cam captures dual HD video and 5MP stills

JVC has launched a new flagship in its 2010 Everio HD camcorder line, the GZ-HM1. The new HD camera improves on low light performance, has better image stabilization and provides higher still image quality compared to the previous generation. It features a 16x zoom lens, a new 10.62-megapixel 1920x1080 CMOS sensor that can deliver a true 10MP still image at up to ISO 6400. It provides 64GB of internal flash memory with an external SDHC card slot.

The GZ-HM1 provides time lapse recording -- 1 to 80 second intervals -- and high speed recording a up to 600 frames per second for extreme slow-motion effects. The camera can capture simultaneous recording of 1080-line HD video alongside 5.7 Megapixel stills.

The GZ-HM1 functions down to 4 lux, a 5 lux improvement over the GZ-HM400 it replaces. The CMOS sensor is back-illuminated for better quality imaging at lower light levels. JVC focused on wide angle performance in improving its image stabilization, using new IS technology featuring two prisms to compensate for both vertical and horizontal shake. JVC claims that the IS can compensate for a user who is walking while filming, still providing a stable image.

The GZ-HM1 uses K2 technology for high-quality audio performance. It offers face detection technology and autoflash, along with one-touch export via its bundled software. The camera is due to ship in March for $1,200.
