Hands-On Review: the JVC GC-PX100 Full HD Everio Camcorder
The JVC GC-PX100 enters the camcorder market at a unique position: It's capable of shooting high frame rates that are unavailable at any level except the highest end (i.e: Phantom models). Now, once you go past 60 fps, you're no longer able to shoot at 1920 x 1080, but even at reduced resolutions, you can't beat 600 frames per second for tasks such as analyzing a pitcher's delivery or a golf or baseball swing.
Kelby Media's Mia McCormick reviews the JVC PX100 and lauds it for its ability to not only record those blazing-fast frame rates, but perhaps more impressively, to play them back immediately, without needing first to pull recorded material into an editing program. That instant slow-motion playback will make a lot of coaches smile. Apart from its flagship slo-mo feature, the PX100 has a fixed 10x optical zoom lens with a fast maximum aperture of f/1.2, and it records to a very high maximum bit rate of 36 Mb/s. Low-light performance is another strength of this camcorder.
