4K video is here to stay, and JVC is testing the water and trying to figure the best approach by experimenting with pro-oriented products like the LS300. On paper, this is one of the most promising cameras ever designed for anyone looking to get their start filming professional-level videos. So, what's it like to use?
JVC Kenwood is releasing 2 new video camera models from their Everio series. They are rugged video cameras supporting IPX8 waterproof, IP5X dustproof, MIL-STD-810F Method 516.5 Shock standards, and temperature resistance (-10~40 degrees C).
NX-PB30 is compatible with CD, FM/AM radio, and MP3/WMA music files in USB memory. It also supports Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR (Profile A2DP/AVRCP, Codec SBC) so that you can play music in Bluetooth compliant devices wirelessly.It will be released in early December.
JVC Kenwood is going to release new earphones model HA-FX19 in early October.
The accompanying cord holder is interesting. It has a suction disk so that you can attach it to the back of a smartphone or music player to allow you to carry it around easier and protect the cord from getting tangled in your bag.
HA-FX19 has a 9mm neodymium driver unit and 3 different sizes of silicon ear pieces come with it.
