JVC Announces The Everio GZ-HD620-The Smallest HDD Camcorder
By Matt J. Weiss, December 8, 2009 @ 11:45 AM (EST)
JVC has announced the latest edition of the Everio line, the GZ-HD620. The camera will feature full 1080p via a 1920 x 1080 backside illuminated CMOS sensor that records light levels as low as 4 lux, and an 120 GB HHD. They managed to cram this into the worlds smallest HDD camcorder body, weighing in at 270g (just under 0.6 pounds) with dimensions of 4.5" long and "2.5 inches wide.

The camera also has a f1.8-4.7 30x optical zoom lens, records footage on either its internal HDD that can hold 11 hours of recordings at the maximum 24Mbps or on a microSDHC card.  The small battery, however, means only 45 minutes of continuos shooting.

The camera is being released in Japan next week and will probably be announced in the U.S. at CES next month.  As for housings, we will have to wait and see. The most likely bet will be from Ikelite.
