JVC lets loose its Everio GZ-MC500 camcorder

Everio GZ-MC500

We hit you up on this tip before, but JVC's officially introduced it's latest Everio hard-drive based camcorder, the GZ-MC500. That would be the "world's smallest" one with three 1/4.5-inch CCDs that records high-quality MPEG-2 video onto CompactFlash microdrives—a 4GB card can store up to an hour of "DVD-quality" video. It also takes "pixel-shifted" (i.e. their name for their fancy interpolation technique, which they claim grabs double the amount of information horizontally and vertically via "prism optics and filterless 3-CCD pixel shift technology") 5-megapixel still shots. We'll see this hit the streets in March for $1,800.
