1/2.3-inch 12.4M CMOS Sensor:
The GY-HM250 was built to deliver stunning, life-like 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) video. JVC's 4K CMOS sensor with 12.4M pixels delivers high sensitivity and excellent performance over a wide range of lighting conditions. Details are crisp and accurate throughout the entire image plane.

The ultra high quality imagery begins with a precision 12x F1.2-3.5 optical zoom lens (35mm equivalent: 29.6-355mm). When shooting in the HD mode, Dynamic Zoom combines optical zoom and pixel mapping from a 4K image sensor to create seamless and lossless 24x zoom. This allows the camera to have a long zoom range while retaining its compact form factor. Dynamic Zoom combines Optical Zoom plus Pixel Mapping -- focusing on a smaller image area for lossless

Full HD 4:2:2 Recording at 50Mbps:
The ability to record H.264 4:2:2 24-60p at 50Mbps makes the GY-HM250 an ideal camera for broadcasting and production houses alike. The color accuracy of 4:2:2 enables the GY-HM180 to deliver exceptional color resolution even when images are in sharp contrast to the background. This is particularly useful when strong colors are in contrast to bright backgrounds, or in green screen usage.
4K/Ultra HD (UHD) Recording at 150Mbps and Live Output:
Working with 4K has never been easier. Insert an SDHC or SDXC (UHS-I Speed class 3) memory card and record hours of 4K/UHD (3840x2160) 4:2:2 material. Recordings are made using the Quicktime (.MOV) file format and are compatible with many popular editing systems. Connect a 4K/UHD monitor with a single HDMI cable, and view the camera's live 4K signal. You can also play back recorded files directly from the camera. The GY-HM250 also downconverts UHD signals to standard HD for output through the built-in SDI or HDMI connectors.
More Manageable 70Mbps 4K Recording Mode:
4K 70Mbps recording mode is also available to record 4K footage on economical Class 10 SDHC/SDXC memory cards. The lower bit rate creates smaller, more manageable files.
120fps (59.94Hz)/100fps (50Hz) High-Speed Recording for Slow Motion Playback:
Also available is high-speed recording (1920x1080 resolution only), at up to 120fps (59.94Hz)/ 100fps (50Hz) for smooth slow motion playback (up to 1/5 slow at 24p mode). It helps create artistic effects and lets you watch replays to examine sporting skills.
HD-SDI (3G) and HDMI Output:
The GY-HM250 comes with a wide variety of connectors to meet the needs of professional applications, including HD-SDI (3G) and HDMI. Secured digital connection is assured between external devices such as a recorder or switcher. Simultaneous output from both SDI and HDMI is also possible.

Dual SDHC/SDXC Card Slots:
Dual SDHC/SDXC card slots make the GY-HM250 a truly versatile camcorder, offering such benefits as simultaneous recording and relay recording. In relay recording mode, you can shoot continuously and seamlessly over multiple cards. When one card is full, the camcorder switches seamlessly and automatically to the other card. And because cards are hot swappable, there is in effect no limit to the continuous shooting time in any mode, even with lower capacity cards.
- Series (relay) recording mode: Continuous recording card by card.
- Dual (simultaneous) recording mode: Recording to 2 cards at same format for backup or multi-purpose.
- Backup recording mode: While the Rec trigger is used to REC and STOP recording on one card, the other card can act as a continuous backup that overrides the pause function.
