While very compact, the economical GY-HM170E features a heavy duty body with professional control layout and comprehensive video profile settings for professional use. It is a fully functional high performance 4K Ultra HD camcorder that's equally capable of shooting 4:2:2 full HD at 50Mbps. Its integrated 12x optical zoom lens and 4K CMOS sensor, deliver razor sharp 4K Ultra HD recordings directly to SDHC/SDXC memory cards. It can even record on two cards simultaneously for instant backup or extended recording time. Output live 4K UHD camera signals through the built-in HDMI connector. And its tiny size allows you to shoot in venues that may be unfriendly to larger cameras.

JVC's fixed lens 4KCAM models, the GY-HM170 and GY-HM200, are being upgraded to include 120fps recording in HD mode for smooth slow motion effects. Firmware for the update is scheduled for release in December 2015, but you can preview a demo of 120fps here, featuring a slow-motion sample shot with the GY-HM200.
