At NAB back in April we saw the GY-HM600, and today JVC announced that the camera is finally shipping. With a suggested list price of $5,000, the GY-HM600 is a dedicated camcorder specifically targeted toward video professionals and prosumers.
Sony announced a new XDCAM this morning with the PMW-200, featuring 3 1/2 inch CMOS sensors and 4:2:2 chroma sub-sampling. Make no mistake, this is very much a broadcast camera. The PMW-200 will shoot 30fps 1080p footage at 50Mbps, and includes a 14x zoom lens. 60fps is available in 720p.
