JVC LAUNCHES NEWEST LINE OF “ALL-WEATHER CAM” EVERIO CAMCORDERS WITH QUAD-PROOF DESIGN AND 5 HOUR BATTERY

Kameros

Water-proof, dust-proof, shock-proof and freeze-proof design, combined with the extended shooting enabled with internal 5-hour long-life battery, allows users to keep going and keep safe at the same time.

Warszawa 2-02-1015, 2015 − JVCKENWOOD Corporation is introducing the JVC Everio “All-Weather Cam” models GZ-RX515, GZ-RX510, GZ-R315 and GZ-R310 featuring a Quad-Proof Structure that makes these camcorders ready for unexpected drops, splashes, rain and snow, plus a built-in 5-hour battery for extended shooting without having to worry if recording will stop midway. And since they’re full-fledged camcorders, they are designed to satisfy with powerful, high quality optics that smartphones simply cannot offer.

These Everio models offer water resistance submersed to a depth of 5m and can be placed under running water for easy cleaning after an active day outdoors. They also have the ability to withstand a drop from 1.5m, and offer dust-proofing and freeze-proofing down to -10˚C. Amazingly enough, all this durability comes in a camcorder form factor with full-fledged functions such as high-powered 40x optical zoom, advanced image stabilisation and large LCD viewscreen. The battery is internal for superior water resistance and, together with its long life, helps to eliminate the risk of damaging the camcorder while exchanging batteries in bad weather. Users are likely to appreciate how they can continue shooting come rain or come shine, with creative flair using special effects onboard the camera, and also edit videos later with third party editing software such as iMovie or Final Cut Pro. Moreover, Everio is compatible with third-party portable batteries* (the type used with smartphones for emergency charging). You can shoot while charging to go well beyond the internal battery’s 5 hours.

Of course, nowadays many people take videos using their smartphones, however Everio camcorders offer the definitive advantage of quality optics. The large-calibre KONICA MINOLTA HD LENS enables high-quality 40x Optical Zoom, and during 60x Dynamic Zoom the powerful 2.5M Back-illuminated CMOS Image Sensor maintains the picture’s HD resolution even when exceeding the optical zoom range. The FALCONBRID image processing engine (which is actually capable of 4K video performance) delivers beautiful images and sound. Adding to overall audio quality is K2 Technology applied during recording for effective sound restoration during playback. The higher-end GZ-RX515/RX510 feature Wi-Fi connectivity, AVCHD progressive recording and 8GB internal memory for enhanced usability and sharing possibilities. When shooting groups and you want a close-up too, the new Close-up Sub-Window function allows both to be recorded simultaneously with the sub-window position movable by touch screen operation. The GZ-RX515 is unique in offering a built-in Auto Illumi. Light. Digital zoom is 100x for GZ-RX510/R310 and 200x for GZ-RX515/R315. The GZ-R315 is available in four colours (availability may differ in your area). Whether your memories are worth a short clip on SNS or deserve to be stored as Full HD video files, capturing it all with the highest quality using Everio ensures beautiful results that will stand the test of time.
