High Performance Full HD 1/3-inch CMOS Sensors
At the heart of the JVC GY-HM850 are three 1/3-inch 2.07 effective-megapixel CMOS sensors, each capable of capturing full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution images. Featuring 12 bit read-out, an excellent sensitivity of F11 (60Hz) / F12 (50Hz) and a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio, the devices provide superior precision and color reproduction with minimal aberration. For improved CMOS sensor performance, flash-band compensation is also supported.
Newly-developed 20x Fujinon Auto Focus Zoom Lens with Manual Functions
JVC GY-HM850 is equipped with a newly-developed Fujinon wide-angle 20x zoom lens offering one of the highest magnifications in the industry. For superior low-light performance and assured brightness at the tele end, the lens offers F1.6-3.0, a focal range of 29mm — 580mm (35mm equivalent) and includes servo zoom, along with manual focus and iris rings.
Optical image stabilizer and chromatic aberration correction are also built into this interchangeable 1/3-inch bayonet mount lens. The built-in Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) helps to correct lateral and vertical movement of the camera, ensuring that pristine HD images remain sharp and stable.
Outstanding sensitivity, LoLux™ function
The JVC GY-HM850 produces outstanding images under a wide range of lighting conditions. Minimum illumination is less than 1 lux: 0.15lx (typical)*. JVC’s exclusive LoLux feature permits shooting in adverse lighting conditions. LoLux can be assigned to a USER button, and set in the menu to offer +30dB or +36dB of gain.
A convenient gain switch provides default gain values of -6dB, 0dB, +9dB. These switch positions can be adjusted to various gain amounts from -6dB to +24dB. An ALC mode is also available to boost gain values from +6dB to +24dB. Standard sensitivity of the GY-HM850 is measured at F11@2,000 lux.

Dual SDHC/SDXC Card Slots for Maximum Versatility
Dual SDHC/SDXC card slots make the JVC GY-HM850 a truly versatile camcorder, offering such benefits as simultaneous recording and relay recording with reliable and cost-effective media. 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.
