JVC GC-PX10

The JVC GC-PX10 is officially slated for release this month in the US.  The PX10 is very similar to the PX1 we saw earlier this year at CES 2011.

The GC-PX10 features a 12.75MP back-illuminated CMOS sensor and captures 1080/60p video at a 36Mbps sample rate.  The 10x zoom lens covers an equivalent focal range of 43.3-433mm when shooting video and 37.4-374mm when shoots stills. [Read more...]

Nikon P500 Slow Motion Video

Nikon P500

I’ve been trying out the Nikon Coolpix P500 for a couple of weeks or so now.  Similar to its predecessor, the P100, the Nikon P500 captures VGA-quality video at 120fps and QVGA-quality at 240fps.  While both are fun, I find the 120fps at VGA’s 640 x 480 resolution much more practical for sharing on TV sets or online.

Below is a short sample of some clips I shot at both frame rates.  Note that the 240fps footage has been up-rezzed in post from its native 320 x 240 resolution to standard VGA 640 x 480 resolution in order to match the 120fps frame size.
