JVC GY-HMQ10, 4K Quad-HD 144mbitps pro camcorder for $9000!

Posted by Charbax – March 17, 2012

JVC is now releasing their new JVC GY-HMQ10 professional camcorder below $9000 on the Japanese market (750,000 Yen). It's using the JVC Falconbrid processor as in my JVC GC-PX10 camcorder that I've been using to film all of my CeBIT 2012 videos (using 720p@50fps@12mbitps for faster uploads), all of my OLPC Summit videos (most include direct-download links to the original 1080p@50fps@36mbitps camcorder files), all my LeWeb 2011 videos were also filmed using the JVC GC-PX10.

The JVC Falconbrid is one of the new upcoming 4K2K Quad-HD camcorder processors to bring more and more affordable 4K cameras to the market!

The JVC GY-HMQ10 I think is designed for professionals, but I also think it's possible that sooner rather than later, JVC might decide to provide 4K recording support in the sub-$1000 camcorders also in something like a successor to the JVC GC-PX10, perhaps the sub-$1000 JVC GC-PX20 will support 4K!

The main question is how to let it record 4K video uncompressed. The new JVC GY-HMQ10 provides 4 SDXC slots supporting thus 4x 64GB SDXC cards that can thus store 4 hours of 4K 144mbitps video onto those four 64GB SDXC Cards in RAID 0 (256GB) in Appleā€™s ProRes422.

It takes space for 4 SDXC card slots, I wonder if it's possible to provide a slot for 2.5" SSD drive or perhaps even a SATA hard drive, but then the 4K camera has to become bigger in size than the JVC GC-PX10.

This sounds like it might be cheaper than the Red Scarlet camera (that seems to need to cost at least $15000 to be able to shoot 4K).

Sub-$9000 for 4K start to be getting there. I wonder though if 2012 isn't going to be the year of the first sub-$2000 4K camcorders, as I also think people are going to be able to find affordable 4K 55" HDTVs also from Sharp and others.

Archos 101 G9 Turbo 1.5Ghz for $259 on Woot.com today only

Posted by Charbax – March 17, 2012

Only today, the Archos 101 G9 Turbo 1.5Ghz is being sold for $259 at http://sellout.woot.com/

It's basically better than the iPad3 and for half the price! Here are some of the reasons I think it's better than the iPad3:

1.5Ghz Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 vs 1Ghz Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9, Kick-stand, HDMI output, full sized USB-host port for 3G/4G/LTE dongle (for now only 3G is on the market for Europe/Asia), that full sized USB host can also be used for USB Keyboards/Mice/Hubs/Hard Drives etc, second USB-host through Micro-USB with adapter, Samba/Upnp file streaming, full codecs up to MKV 1080p high profile full bitrates with up to DTS audio (meaning any video you download from the Internet just works natively), Android Ics Cream Sandwich runs on it and is open unlike iOS (meaning you can install any app you want through any app store you want and customize the OS as you want), the 1280x800 10.1" capacitive screen is decent although the next generation of 10.1" 1920x1200 screens are coming (obviously for more expensive prices), etc.
