The new Everio X (GZ-X900) hybrid camera was announced by JVC last week in Las Vegas. As an hybrid, the Everio X allows you to shoot high definition video (1920 x 1080) and high resolution digital still images (nine-megapixel). Measuring 2.6 x 4.88 x 1.45-inches and weighing in at just 0.66 pounds, the camera is small enough to slip into your shirt pocket and be your best friend wherever you go. The Everio X also able to play the recorded video in 10x slow motion. And last but not least, it’s expected to be available in June for $1000.
The new Everio X was designed for the consumer who wants to shoot high quality digital stills and HD video, but wants the convenience of a single camera. While most conventional video camcorders shoot digital stills and most digital still cameras shoot video, the secondary capabilities of these cameras don’t offer sufficient quality for many users. Everio X solves that dilemma by providing high quality stills and top quality HD video.
