4K Compact Handheld Camcorder

The JVC GY-HMQ10U is the world's first hand held camcorder capable of capturing and recording real-time video at 4 times the resolution of full HD—3840 x 2160 images at 24p, 50p and 60p. Now you can deliver stunning cinema-quality recordings with a small form factor, self-contained camcorder.

Great images begin with a great optical system. The GY-HMQ10U employs a razor sharp F2.8 10x zoom lens specifically designed for 4K imaging. A high speed 1/2-inch class CMOS device with 8.3 million active pixels (3840 x 2160) captures live progressive images at up to 60 frames per second. This tremendous amount of data is then processed using an array of custom JVC Falconbrid LSI chips that deBayer the image and provide a live 4K output while simultaneously compressing video for recording onto separate solid state memory cards. 4K recordings up to 2 hours in length can be made using four 32GB SDHC cards.

Operation and form factor are very similar to JVC's popular GY-HM150 with manual or auto control of focus, iris, gain, shutter, gamma level, color matrix, and white balance.

The GY-HMQ10U also functions as a Full HD camcorder capable of recording 1920 x 1080 at 50/60p or 50/60i onto a single memory card in the AVCHD format.
