Record Video and Stills on 4GB Microdrive Card. New Everio cameras shoot DVD-quality MPEG-2 video and 1600x1200 stills.
Victor Company of Japan, Limited (JVC) announced today the Japanese launch of two new palm-size digital media cameras that shoot 60 minutes of DVD-quality video or thousands of high resolution stills using a high capacity 4GB Microdrive? card that contains a one inch removable hard disk drive.
JVC's new Everio line offers an unprecedented combination of convenience and quality, recording both video and still images on a single digital medium that offers high capacity and high quality on a card that can slip into a wallet. It's the same storage device used in some of today's most popular portable digital music players. Both ultra-compact JVC Everio cameras shoot up to 60 minutes of DVD-quality MPEG-2 video or over 5.5 thousand 1600x1200 UXGA-size digital stills on the included 4GB Microdrive? card. Both also allow quick transfer of material to a PC and easy saving to DVD.
JVC's Everio digital media cameras mark the leading edge for video products adopting new types of digital media, a trend that began in audio. With Everio, JVC establishes a new benchmark with a format that combines convenience with the high storage capacity required to meet real world needs. The result is a pair of ultra-compact camcorders that offer video and still image capabilities, mobility, high image quality, extended shooting time, and ease of use.
Everio comes in two styles, the GZ-MC200 with a rotating grip and the vertical GZ-MC100 that's about the size of an electric razor. Both cameras offer the same high performance and features, while offering two design alternatives to suit users' personal preferences.
