As technology progresses, users are not only looking for ways to capture and share special moments, but they’re looking for easier and higher quality ways to do so.

JVC president Yuta Ito has confirmed to SlashGear that the company's first 4k2k consumer camcorder is "just around the corner," bringing super high-resolution video capture to mainstream levels. The new model will be based on the same exclusive JVC Falconbird image processor as in the 3D Everio GS-TD1 camcorder.
JVC's new Everio GS-TD1 camcorder isn't the first 3D example we've seen, but it is the first to manage Full HD 3D recording. The new JVC Falconbird image processing engine is paired with two 3.32-megapixel CMOS sensors, each capable of 1920 x 1080i, while even the preview display is 3D-capable. Check out our hands-on impressions after the cut.
JVC has unveiled a new consumer 3D camcorder with full HD resolution at CES called the GS-TD1. The new camcorder is the world's first consumer offering with full HD 3D capability. The camera uses a pair of lenses with 3.32MP CMOS sensors in each lens to capture the 3D images the same way human eyes work.
Kodak will be unveiling a lot of new gear at CES 2011 in the coming week. The gear will include several new cameras and a digital photo frame among other stuff. The stuff that Kodak has announced includes the new Easyshare Touch camera with a $149.99 MSRP in the US. The camera has a 3-inch touchscreen on the back and can shoot 720p video. It has 14MP resolution and 5x optical zoom.
Samsung has outed its latest digital camcorder, the HMX-Q10, a Full HD model featuring the company's "Switch Grip" which uses an accelerometer to flip the screen display depending on which way up you're shooting. The Samsung HMX-Q10 supports 1080/60i HD or 720p HD, along with 4.9-megapixel stills.
Swann Security has unveiled its waterproof, ruggedized SportsCam ahead of CES 2011, a compact still and video camera capable of withstanding up to 65-feet submersion as well as the sort of shocks, knocks and bumps you might experience when snowboarding, pig wrestling or falling out of trees. The SportsCam captures 640 x 480 video or stills to its removable microSD card, with a 16GB card good for up to 5hrs of video.
You'll need to recharge before you run out of space, in fact, since the rechargeable Li-Ion battery is good for up to 2.5hrs of filming. It recharges via USB.
Panasonic's AG-AF100 micro-four-thirds camcorder has begun shipping, with the interchangeable lens camera offering native 1080/24p recording for $4,995. The AF100 can record up to 12 hours of footage across two 64GB SDXC cards in PH mode, as well as capturing 2-megapixel stills, and supports ISO 200 to 3200, variable frame rates in 20 steps from 12p to 60p at 60Hz or from 12p to 50p at 50Hz, and can use regular micro-4/3 lenses from still cameras.
JVC's 3D projector technology is among the best around, but until now the company hasn't offered a straightforward way to record high-definition 3D content for it. All that could change at CES 2011; JVC is promising a new HD camcorder in January next year, using the world's first LSI chip for high-speed image processing. The new JVC LSI chip is capable of recording Full HD, including both 2D and 3D images, and also 4K2K images that are roughly 4x Full HD resolution.
