JVC 4K Camera for "Under $2,000" on Display at CES 2014

JVC 4K Camera for "Under $2,000" on Display at CES 2014 | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


4K is the big buzz phrase this year.


Camera-wise though, the selection is still a bit slim.


Sony showed off its new FDR-AX100 and Panasonic featured a prototype 4K Lumix camera.


Additionally, JVC had its 4K version of the PX100 on display as a reference exhibit at CES 2014.


The camera was tethered to a 4K display and streaming 4K footage from its HDMI port.

JVC will launch its first (sort of) 8K projector later this month in Japan, for $261,000

JVC will launch its first (sort of) 8K projector later this month in Japan, for $261,000 | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

JVC showed off a prototype 8K Super Hi-Vision projector in 2008 at CEATEC, and now it's ready to ship a real product later this month, dubbed the DLA-VS4800.

 

JVC's e-Shift pixel technology is at play here, which we first saw in consumer products with the '4K' projectors it shipped in 2011, and updated in last year's models.

 

Basically the D-ILA display panel inside the device is half the resolution (in this one, 4,096 x 2,400) but projects two images alternated at 120Hz, one shifted slightly diagonally.

 

This creates the impression of a higher res display, without actually upping the pixel count.

Hands On With JVC's 4K Video Camera: It Won't Break Your Back Or Your Budget | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

With everyone having a 4K TV and/or projector at home these days, it makes sense that camera manufacturers would start rolling out new models capturing footage at a glorious resolution of 3840x2160.

6 Cameras to Ease Your Way Into Shooting 4K Video

6 Cameras to Ease Your Way Into Shooting 4K Video | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

To record in 4K or not to record in 4K, that is the (admittedly awkward) question many photographers and videographers are grappling with. As momentum continues to build behind the new format, you might find yourself grappling with it, too.

If you’re considering the jump to 4K, we’ve selected six video cameras that deliver it in a package that’s affordable, preserves your ability to shoot in HD and is relatively easy to use if you know your way around an HD digital SLR. Workflows for 4K are still maturing, so some solutions require proprietary memory formats and/or software for post-processing, but hey, no pain, no gain, right?

The difference in pricing is staggering. But the price doesn't always influence productivity. This was informative on a budgeting aspect, which troubles any and everyone in the movie making industry.

JVC GY-HMQ10E 4K CAMCORDER

4k Acquisition, outside of feature film production, is an unknown market – but then almost no-one had an HD TV when JVC launched HDV back in 2005 and look where we are now.

 

JVC intends to bring 4k to the masses, and you can be sure that the other mainstream manufacturers will be right there too which, like its HDV predecessor, makes the HMQ10 a camera that’s difficult to ignore.

 

The JVC HMQ10 isn’t a perfect camera. The eye-level viewfinder is horrid, the touch screen UI is unresponsive and some of the controls are fiddly.

 

That said, the camera performs very well in ‘full auto’, it’s small (ish), cheap (for a 4k camera – about £3350 plus VAT) and the image quality is much better than I expected.
