Quad-Proof camcorder with 4K Video Recording and long-life internal battery. Dual SD card slots ensures extended recording and easy data handling. 4K Time-Lapse Recording and Full HD High-Speed Recording provide unique, creative video.

Technologies for High-Quality 4K Images

Newly-Developed JVC 4K GT LENS

Provides a wide angle of 29.9mm, custom-designed for fine image reproduction while maintaining a compact profile.

New image processing engine – FALCONBRID 4K

Enables high-speed processing of the massive 4K pixel data for high quality video recording, while also contributing to low power consumption.

4.5H* Internal Long-Life Battery

High capacity internal battery enables 4.5 hours (4K mode)/5.5 hours (HD 60i mode) of continuous recording*. You’ll have plenty of power to shoot entire events without worry.

 

*Figures are the approximate time of continuous recording of the default setting mode if the internal battery has been fully charged, “LCD Backlight” is set to “0”, and without the use of zoom function.

Dual SD Card Slots

A single 64GB card* can record about 1hr. 45min. of 4K video. Unique features using two cards include; Series Recording to record continuously and seamlessly over two cards and Dual Recording to record the same content (HD only) on both cards. *Card is not provided.


Note: Recording in 4K is possible with an affordable “Class 10” SD card, and does not require the card with notation such as “For 4K” or “4K-compatible”. Be sure to check that the SD card has Class 10 mark when purchasing class10

Wide Viewing Angle LCD

New 460K-pixel wide viewing LCD with improved visibility outdoors with a built-in polarizing plate.

8 Megapixel Stills captured from 4K Video

Still images can be freely captured from 4K video, with more than 8 megapixel quality. Grab that crucial moment in a way that still cameras just can’t. No need to switch recording modes; no need to carry a separate digital still camera. Just record video and choose the best shots afterward.

Full-Fledged Sound with External Mic Input

Super realistic 4K video deserves high-quality realistic sound to go along with it. You can connect an external microphone to record documentary style soundtracks. Photos shows a mounting example with an optional third party microphone and a bar mount.
