Technologies for High-Quality 4K Images

Newly-Developed JVC 4K GT LENS

Provides a wide angle of 29.9mm, custom-designed for fine image reproduction while maintaining a compact profile.

New image processing engine – FALCONBRID 4K

Enables high-speed processing of the massive 4K pixel data for high quality video recording, while also contributing to low power consumption.

Quad-Proof Design

Everio R’s renowned Quad-Proof body ensures worry-free usage for outdoor activities or in harsh environments. Also ready for accidents such as sudden rain or drops.

4.5H* Internal Long-Life Battery

High capacity internal battery enables 4.5 hours (4K mode)/5.5 hours (HD 60i mode) of continuous recording*. You’ll have plenty of power to shoot entire events without worry.

 

*Figures are the approximate time of continuous recording of the default setting mode if the internal battery has been fully charged, “LCD Backlight” is set to “0”, and without the use of zoom function.

8 Megapixel Stills captured from 4K Video

Still images can be freely captured from 4K video, with more than 8 megapixel quality. Grab that crucial moment in a way that still cameras just can’t. No need to switch recording modes; no need to carry a separate digital still camera. Just record video and choose the best shots afterward.

4K Time-Lapse Recording

You can enjoy time-lapse video in 4K quality. Just set the camera and shoot, and that’s all. No editing required afterward. Take unique, creative videos that are sure to turn heads.

Full HD High-Speed Recording for Slow Motion Playback

With high-speed recording, you can enjoy impressive slow motion of sports, outdoor and near-water scenes, in HD quality. Try recording situations that only a Quad Proof camera can capture, and savor every second of it.
