I'm interested in the JVC GY-HM200 camera. I realize it is new to the market but was wondering if anyone has seen an actual 3rd party review of this camera. I have seen numerous promotions of it but am wondering how it does in low light and contrast/dynamic range. Thanks for any information you can provide.

JVCs two new cameras GZ-R70 and GZ-R10 bring action-camera-durability to the traditional camera form factor. Like the aging action star, these show promise of no excuse good video. When JVC asks for proofing, they mean it, with IPX8 certification, both the GZ-R10 and GZ-R70 can be submersed under 16 feet of water, and for most of us, that's as far as we'll want to go.

As technology makes the components for camcorders smaller and smaller, the overall form factor has shrunk considerably. In many forms of technology, smaller is definitely better, but I think camcorders are an exception to the rule. Give me a big, shoulder mountable beast of a camera, and I'll give you some stellar hand-held footage.

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 $5,000, the GY-HM600 is a dedicated camcorder specifically targeted toward video professionals and prosumers.
I'm producing a film for a youth service and they own their own camera and I was just wondering was it any good. Basically I want to use a camera that's at a high standard, professional so I want to know is it usable.
JVC GY-HM100 Solid State Video with Newly designed JVCs original Optical Stabilisation, JVC patented Focus Assist, Colour viewfinder and LCD display, 2 Channel balance audio inputs, mic/line switchable with built-in phantom power supply, HDMI output, USB 2.0 interface.
I have a JVC EVERIO CAMCORDER (Model GZ-MG620SEK) and a TOSHIBA HDD & DVD / VIDEO CASSETTE RECORDER (Model RDXV60KB). I need a 4 pin DV cable with a 3.5 stereo jack at the other end, but can only seem to find a 4 pin/4 pin or 4 pin/6 pin DV cable.
Can anybody help?
Hello guys ! I really need some help in picking a camera to start shooting videos. I want to do a combination of sketches + a bit of vlogging , that will be the format of the "show". I was thinking of buying a JVC HM30/Samsung Q10/Canon HFR205 or even a SonySX45E , but when i went to the shop the salesman told me that camcorders are crap and i should try a cheaper alternative, a Canon PowerShot A3300 to shoot videos. I have about 230$ budget to buy a camera. Can anyone give me some info, which is better for shooting videos ?
I own a JVC Everio GZ-HM400U camcorder. I am very happy with the quality of the video, however I have recently been looking into working with 60fps as a standard, and would appreciate help regarding this camera and its capabilities. I am aware of the features of high frame rate recording included with this camcorder, from 120 to 600 frames per second, with video quality being lost in respect of the higher frame rates. Also, during high speed recording, sound does not record, and time is limited to less than four seconds.
