JVC launched seven new Everio camcorders, four of which have built-in WiFi to tether to Android and iOS devices, enabling wireless transfer to the smartphone for internet sharing — and for the phone to serve as a remote control for the camcorder’s video capture.
“With Wi-Fi models, JVC fills the gap between a traditional camcorder and a smartphone by combining great image quality with advanced photographic features, such as a powerful zoom and excellent communication capabilities,” the company says.
Live Monitoring allows real-time viewing on a smartphone or computer of images taken with the Everio.
Auto Photo Email automatically emails stills taken using the Everio’s movement detection function to a computer or smartphone.
All the new Everio models record in 1920 by 1080 HD in AVCHD format. However, video clips sent from camcorder through the phone’s data connection are limited to 15 seconds long, and 640 by 360 in resolution.
The E/EX series has a 40x optical zoom. The V/VX series’ Super LoLux optics has F1.2 lens assures, and the camcorders capture hi-speed and super slow video. The GX series’ lens was “developed specifically to yield optimal results together with the 1/2.3-inch 10 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor.”
Prices range from $230 to $900. More information is here.
