The JVC GY-HMQ10 is a new 4K camcorder, which captures the full 3840 x 2160 resolution at 24p, 30p and 60p frame rates. Yeah, 60p at 4K…
The HMQ10 features a 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor at a true 8.2MP for pixel-to-pixel rendering of the 4K image. It is equipped with a fixed 10x zoom lens with an f/2.8 minimum aperture (f/4.5 at full tele).

On my last day at CES 2012, I stopped by the Vanguard booth to check out some of their new products. I’ve been a Vanguard fan since I bought the SBH-250 ball head a couple of years or so back.
One of the new items from Vanguard this year is an updated version of their pistol-grip ball head. The GH-100 was last year’s model, which I’ve used and enjoyed quite a bit – although I have neglected to publish a review on it. The GH-200 is the new model and it improves on the few minor complaints I had about the otherwise solid GH-100. In essence, you can take this as a review of both units with some notes on what makes the GH-200 an improved offering. [click to continue…]
I stopped by the Corel booth at one of the CES 2012 events last week. After seeing Lightroom 4 beta, I figured I had seen the tip of the spear for photo-editing software for the week. Boy, was I wrong. [click to continue…]
I finally got to get some hands-on time with the new Fuji X-Pro1 at CES 2012. After handing out Camera of the Year honors in 2011 to the Fuji X100, I’ve been itching to see what Fuji had coming for the oft-rumored interchangeable lens lineup. Based on what I’ve seen so far, the Fuji X-Pro1 looks like it won’t disappoint and should easily be in the running for the 2012 Camera of the Year. [click to continue…]
The Canon G1 X was a bit of a surprise from the only major camera manufacturer without a mirrorless interchangeable lens system. While it doesn’t offer interchangeable lenses, the G1 X features an image sensor that’s bigger than the Nikon 1 and Micro Four Thirds (Panasonic and Olympus) cameras. I had some time with a pre-production model at CES 2012. Check out my initial hands-on impressions below. [click to continue…]
One of the new products Olympus introduced at CES 2012 was the LS-100 audio recorder. I had the chance to sit down with the LS-100 for a few minutes during a press briefing. Check out my hands-on report below. [click to continue…]
