This PAL region GZ-RX110BE Quad-Proof HD Camcorder with 8GB Internal Memory from JVC is designed to combine the ruggedness of an action camera with features, such as a zoom lens and flip-out LCD, more commonly found on camcorders. To justify being dubbed a "quad-proof" camera, the GZ-RX110BE boasts a waterproof body that can be safely submerged down to 16.4', an impact resistance rating stating it will survive drops from up to 4.9', the ability to withstand freezing temperatures down to 14°F, and finally an IP5X dustproof rating.
The camcorder features a Konica Minolta 40x optical zoom lens that supports up to 60x dynamic zoom, a 3.0" "frameless" flip-out touchscreen LCD with a 230,000 dot resolution, and 8GB of internal flash memory. For longer recording times there is also a full size SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot that can accept memory cards up to 128GB in capacity. The camera records Full HD (1920 x 1080p) video at up to 50 fps, and can take still photos up to 10MP. It can also capture 1920 x 1080 still images while simultaneously recording video. Wi-Fi capability allows you to live monitor and operate the camcorder from an iOS or Android mobile device.
At the heart of the imaging system on the GZ-RX110BE is a 1/5.8", 2.5MP CMOS sensor that is back-illuminated to help reduce the space between photosites for better low-light performance. To help allow as much light as possible to pass through the lens, the camera features an f/1.8 maximum aperture when the lens is zoomed out to its widest setting.
Once done filming for the day, you can simply remove the card from the camera and place it in a card reader on your computer or even connect the camera directly to your computer via USB to offload from either the memory card or the 8GB internal flash memory. Included in-camera is the Pixela Everio MediaBrowser 4, a basic application for viewing video and photos that works on Windows computers. In addition, the 24 Mb/s AVCHD format the camera records in is supported by most popular editing programs, such as Apple's Final Cut Pro X and iMovie.
