JVC Everio X GZ-X900 goes on sale in Japan

The JVC Everio X GZ-X900 camcorder has gone on sale in Japan, ahead of what's expected to be a June 2009 launch in the US.  Announced back at PMA in March, the GZ-X900 can record 1080p video and shoot 9-megapixel still images, with up to 24Mbps AVCHD footage supported.Demo video of the GZ-X900 in action after the cut

We went hands-on with the GZ-X900 at the show, and came away impressed with how many features it manages to pack into a chassis measuring just 2.6 x 4.88 x 1.46 inches and 0.66lbs in weight.  Check out our sample footage here.

Rounding out the specs are an HDMI port and 120/300/600fps shooting modes.  In the US, the JVC Everio X GZ-X900 is expected to be priced at around $999.95 when it lands in June.
