Yesterday at CES, JVC unveiled its new GS-TD1 video camera capable of recording 3D, fill 1080p high definition video. Available in March, this product caught my eye, because anything that has high definition, full 1080p, 3D, and the word camera in its description….as a storage guy, I am listening.

The GS-TD1 ships with 64GB of internal flash memory, and offers a additional SD/SDHC/SDXC slot for additional recording capacity. What I like is the fact that products like these almost always need additional storage to unload recorded video, and that storage tends to be hard drive based. And, according to this capacity calculator, you’re going to need a heck of a lot of storage for all of the 1080p content you will be creating.

Required storage: (uncompressed)

1 second: 155.52 MB
30 seconds: 4.67 GB
1 minute: 9.33 GB
5 minutes: 46.66 GB
1 hour: 559.87 GB
24 hours: 13.44 TB

Now, that’s a match made in heaven.
