CES 2018 | JVC Quad-Proof 4K Camcorder | Everio GZ-RY980 | Waterproof, Shock, Dust & Freeze Proof

Glossary of Terms

Charges by USB = This is a very useful feature, which allows you to charge the camcorder via a USB cord from a portable USB charger or a wall charger.
Waterproof = Water resistance to a depth of 5m/16.4 feet. Equivalent to IEC Standard publication 529 IPX6 / IPX8.
Dustproof = Equivalent to IEC Standard publication 529 IP5X
Shockproof = Compliant with “MIL-STD-810F Method 516.5 Shock: dropping onto plywood 1-3/16″ thick from a height of 4.9ft.
Freezeproof = Allowable operating temperatures: 14°F to 104°F
Optical Zoom = This is the maximum zoom using the lens of the camcorder. A 10x zoom brings the action in about 10 times closer at its maximum.
Closed LCD Recording = The camcorder can record, even if you close the LCD screen.
Dual Flash = This type of camcorder has both internal memory and can also record to memory cards. Quad Proof camcorders have either 4GB or 32GB of internal memory.
Imager Size = This refers to the Imager of the camcorder, where the light hits from the lens. This is like the retina of the eye. The larger the imager, the better the quality of the video and better low light performance. High end camcorders generally have a larger imager. Larger is better. A 1/3-inch imager is larger than a 1/4.5-inch imager.
Low Light Lenses = Larger and faster lenses allow more light in for greater low light sensitivity. Lenses with low f stop specifications are considered fast lenses. The camcorders on this page all have fast low light lenses with an f stop of f1.8 or lower (lower is better).
1080p 720p 60i 24p 60p video = camcorders can record video at various resolutions. Many can record at several different rates. 1080p is the current highest (blu-ray quality). 720p has about half the resolution of 1080p. Also keep in mind the frame rate of the video. Normal video is shot at 30fps (frames per second). 1080@60i is 60 interlaced frames, which is roughly equivalent to 1080p@30fps. Movie film is shot at 24fps (24p). Some camcorders can shoot at 60fps (60p) which will make the movie silky smooth and can be used for slow motion as well.
EVF Viewfinder = Most camcorders today do not have a viewfinder, but use their LCD screen to compose video. However, some high end camcorders do have an Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). The advantage of having an EVF is to use the viewfinder in bright sun, where the LCD may be hard to see.
