JVC just dropped a brand new, and small 1080p handycam on us.  And unfortunately it hurts, because at a $1000 a pop its a bit painful.  But unlike many other HD handycams out there this one comes with a few extra features.  For one, it can capture 5 megapixel stills at 60fps and 9MP stills at 15fps.  However, the really cool stuff has yet to be mentioned.  So what is it already?  The JVC GZ-X900 can record video at up to 600 fps.  Of course, with the increase in frame rate comes low rez, 640×72 to be exact.  Furthermore, the total recording time at the accelerated FPS maxes out at about 2.5 seconds (or 4 second in 120 or 300fps), which means bursts of imagery that can be stitched together in up to 80 second segments. Check the videos below that show off the GZ-X900 slomo abilities.  They’re ordered in highest FPS to slowest.

The JVC GZ-X900 will hit this June.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
