4K is the big buzz phrase this year. Camera-wise though, the selection is still a bit slim. Sony showed off its new FDR-AX100 and Panasonic featured a prototype 4K Lumix camera. Additionally, JVC had its 4K version of the PX100 on display as a reference exhibit at CES 2014. The camera was tethered to a 4K display and streaming 4K footage from its HDMI port.

JVC recently launched the GC-XA2 ADIXXION action camera. While the name is a bit awkward, the first-gen ADIXXION came out of nowhere with some pretty cool features, including a 1.5″ LCD built into the camera and a 5x zoom. However, user complaints about battery life and WiFi connection left a big question mark next to the camera.
The second generation model now sports 1080/60p and 720/120p HD video (up from 1080/30p and 720/60p in the first-gen) for some serious slow motion capability. Like its predecessor the GC-XA2 sports a built-in 1.5″ LCD, which I thought was a great feature in the first camera and I’m glad to see it stick around. [click to continue…]
JVC is bringing its Nikon F-mount, 4K concept camera from CES 2012 to market. The JVC JY-HMQ30 looks like it will use the same multi-stream 4K recording that is found in the JVC GY-HMQ10 fixed-lens 4K camcorder, which was officially announced at CES 2012. [click to continue…]

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).
