2013 JVC Everio Camcorders Announced

By  |  10 Comments

For 2013, JVC announced eight camcorders to its Everio line, which include the entry-level GZ-E100, step-up GZ-E300/EX310/EX355 and high-performance GZ-E505/EX515/EX555 characterized by their lens-prominent design, and the unique GZ-VX815, which offers top performance in a stylishly sleek and elegant form.  Seven offer a powerful 40x or 38x optical zoom, five get built-in Wi-Fi, and four get a new wide-angle lens up to 29.3mm (35mm conversion) to more easily capture those tight indoor scenes.

At the heart of the new Everio line is a new 2.5-megapixel Back-Illuminated CMOS image sensor that with 2 million effective pixels delivers an outstanding Full HD image and improved low light performance for every model in the 100, 300 and 500 series. The new flagship GZ-VX815 (pictured above) boasts a 12.8-megapixel sensor.

New wireless functions include live streaming over the Internet via services such as USTREAM, and One-Touch Auto Back-up instantly wirelessly transfers recorded video to a PC at the touch of a button. Also new is the optional Pan Cradle, which allows remote panning and tilting of the camera from a smartphone or tablet. Wireless data transfer possibilities include sending video to a smartphone or tablet (AVCHD converted to high definition MP4 or Standard Definition), as well as non-converted iFrame data transfer to an iPod or iPad or Android smartphone. JVC’s free app for using wireless communication functions is available for download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Market. To make it quick and easy to get rolling with Everio, Wi-Fi models are supported by a QR code-based Wi-Fi setup utility, and all models are supported by a mobile user guide that’s been optimized for smartphone viewing.

In addition to native Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution AVCHD recording (all models) and Standard Definition recording (all except GZ-VX815), Wi-Fi models also offer an iPhone/iPad-compatible iFrame recording mode at 1280 x 720 or 960 x 540 resolution. All models work with iMovie and Final Cut Pro X. Every model also incorporates K2, a technology developed and used in professional sound studios, which is applied during playback (GZ-E100) or during recording (all other models). Auto Wind Cut intelligently reduces wind noise without that annoying unnatural muting of sound. The GZ-VX815 goes even further with an F1.2 Super Bright Lens and 12 Megapixel stills. There’s also a powerful two-hour battery for longer recording and streaming. JVC engineers have also redesigned Everio’s Wi-Fi antenna to provide a drastically improved powerful wireless connection over last year’s models.

For ease-of-use, all new Everio camcorders feature a “Best Play” function that provides simple digest playback of the best scenes from recorded footage. This is actually a cluster of functions comprised of Best Scene Mode, which allows tagging of favorite scenes while recording or later on, Best Face Mode, which automatically picks out scenes containing registered faces, and Best Smile Mode which picks out just the scenes containing great smiles. Also new is Sports Scoring, a function that lets the user record a running tally of the score for a sporting event by simply tapping on a smartphone.

All Everio Wi-Fi models come with LoiLoFit software. Powerful video editing is possible with timeline editing, transition effects, trimming, text insert, BGM insertion and various decoration effects. Intuitive drag-and-drop operation makes using the software easy for even the casual user.

Price and Availability
The Everio GZ-E100 and GZ-E300 are available this month. The rest of the Everio line will be available in February 2013.  Prices are:
