If you’re a thrill-chaser looking to record your outdoor adventures, JVC has got you covered with their new line of Everio weather-proof camcorders. According to JVC, the camcorders can shoot video in any weather, and the camcorders feature 4.5 hours of battery life.
The Everio Camcorders, the GZ-R70, GZ-R30, and GZ-R10, are water resistant up to 5 meters and can withstand a fall from 1.5 meters (but let’s hope your adventures are free of any nasty falls). The camcorders are also dust-proof and free-proof. AND THEY CAN FLOAT! Perfect if you’re feeling daring enough to let your niece record your white water rafting.
In terms of the actual video quality, the Everio camcorders feature a 40x optical zoom and a 2.5 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS image sensor. The camcorders also come with a Konica Minolta HD Lens.
The camcorders start at $399.95 and are available in black, blue and red.
