At CES 2010 this year, JVC announced a new camcorder, the Everio GZ-HM550. This camcorder comes with a 10.6 megapixel CMOS sensor, 32GB of built in storage, an SD/SDHC slot, Bluetooth module and geotagging capability. The Bluetooth module will allow you to control the camera’s zoom, play, and record functions as well as geotag areas with a compatible cellphone. If you are so inclined, you can also sync a Bluetooth headset to the camcorder to listen to the recorded sound or add your own voice to the film. The camcorder can also record in 1080p, zoom up to 16 times, and take 9 megapixel still shots.

The camcorder will go on sale this spring for $799.95. A touch pricey for a camcorder, but it is loaded with features that most others do not have.
