US to see 1080p-output camcorders from JVC After a successful initial release in Japan JVC has announced that it will be bringing its two new Everio HD camcorders to North American markets.
The HD5 and HD6 will replace their bulkier predecessor, the H7 and will be the first to output a full-speed, 60 FPS, 1080p image when attached to an HDTV. An HDMI 1.3 connector provides x.v.Color support for added color depth in HDTVs that support x.v.Color. The company also says the shots are saved to disc at 1080i.

Just like their Japanese counterparts, the HD5 and 6 are mainly different only by storage capacity with the HD5 having a 60GB HDD and the HD6 having a 120GB HDD. The smaller capacity model will "hold up to 12 hours of standard-ratio (1440x1080) HD video" while the larger capacity model holds double that. The HD6 also adds a headphone jack and lens hood.

Both camcorders come equipped "with a 10X zoom, image-stabilized lens and software both for full editing on Windows PCs and plug-ins for Apple's iMovie and Final Cut software."

Both are due in March with hefty price tags of $1200 USD and $1400 USD respectively.
