JVC’s New Handheld 4K Camera Could Be A Steal For Young Professionals

JVC’s New Handheld 4K Camera Could Be A Steal For Young Professionals

For DIY filmmakers, the recent release of the RED Scarlet brought an affordable digital option. However, the gulf between the likes of Canon’s 5D, priced at about $3,000 and the $17,000 Scarlet still prevents most from making the leap to a professional video camera.

JVC could change that with its GY-HMQ10 model. Unveiled at CES, the camera is priced at only $5,000 and packs 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution and 24P, 50P, and 60P framerates. It’s handheld size is another plus, especially when you compare it against the likes of the Canon xf300, a $7,000 handheld shooting only 2K.

The GY-HMQ10 hits stores in March, so we’ll know then how it fares out in the field.
