This versatile camera offers you the option of recording UHD 4K at rates up to 150 Mb/s to SDXC Class 3 cards or up to 70 Mb/s to SDXC/SDHC Class 10 cards.

The GY-HM250's integrated IP engine enables you to stream Full HD in the field directly from the camcorder and offers remote camera control and monitoring from your mobile device or laptop. Compatible with RTMP, Zixi, and Wowza streaming, the GY-HM250 offers one-click zeroconf configuration when using a common LAN between cameras. A firmware update brings Facebook Live integration to the camera, streamlining the connection process. In HD mode, custom graphics can be created and controlled via a browser-controlled tablet or smartphone. The GY-HM250 also comes with pre-installed color schemes and the ability to upload icons or logos to add a personalized look to your footage.

An integrated 12x zoom lens with a tele-macro function provides a 35mm equivalent focal range of 29.6 to 355mm, and a 24x dynamic zoom mode is available when recording in HD. For composing and monitoring video, the camcorder features a 3.5" LCD, a 0.24" viewfinder, and a smart focus assist function.

A top handle unit with the integrated audio box, a 7.4 VDC battery, and an AC adapter are included with the camera.

Streaming requires a connection and the use of a wireless LAN, Ethernet, or cellular network to USB Type-A, USB 2.0 adapter.
