JVC intros GC-PX1 1080p60 hybrid camera

JVC this morning unveiled a new camera that theoretically gives the best of moving and still photography. The GC-PX1, previously shown as just a concept at CES, can shoot 1080p video at a rare 60 frames per second, hitting the peak 36Mbps bandwidth quality of the AVCHD (H.264) spec. It nonetheless has a traditional camera grip and can snap 10.6-megapixel photos with full manual controls.

Both modes can take advantage of a 38.5-385mm equivalent (10X) f2.8-4.5 stabilized lens as well as the maximum ISO 6,400 light sensitivity. A three-inch tilting touchscreeen provides the central controls for both. JVC provided a slight edge to video as a special slow-motion mode will capture up to 300 frames per second by dropping down to VGA (640x480) resolution.

As shipped, the camera will have 32GB of flash storage built-in and will have an SDXC slot to take up to 128GB more storage using current card technology.

The camera will be a premium model when it arrives first in Japan and has been given an unofficially estimated price equal to $1,223 after including taxes. Most JVC cameras reach the US and carry lower prices, but when this would happen if at all wasn't mentioned in the initial release. [via Impress]
