The JVC GY-HM70 Shoulder mounted events camera with 1/2.3" sensor comes with some features that you would expect from a camera of it's type and some that you wouldn't. The camera is aimed squarely at people who regularly film events, weddings and corporate video and need a camera for every type of environment and have to manage tight budgets.

The GY-HM70 is packed full of features that make it the more competitive option over the other cameras in its class. It immediately jumps ahead of its competitors by having the larger sensor and coupled with JVC's Low light performance mode means that videographers can shoot for longer in less than ideal conditions without a fear of noise.

The Camera also features the worlds first hot-swappable battery. This means that sinking feeling you have, when filming a conference or event on battery power. When you see the battery indicator slowly ticking down towards flat and knowing that you are going to lose what could be pivotal footage of the event as you change battery. With the GY-HM70 that is a thing of the past as all you need to do is replace one of the two batteries without even touching the record button.

On top of that the GY-HM70 comes with some features you would expect, 2 SDHC/XC slots for extended recording time, up to 1920 x 1080 50p recording, including High speed recording up to 250 frames per second. All this means that the JVC GY-HM70 should be one of the top of your list of considerations when buying a new events camera.
