JVC is bringing a wealth of new features to the GY-HM200 and GM-HM170 4KCAM recorders, both of which have seen recent price cuts with the GY-HM200 being lowered in price through a $500 instant rebate that changes its retail to $2,495, and the GY-HM170 now retailing at $1,995. Both fixed lens models will be gaining a new slow motion recording mode that will allow for 120 fps to be shot in HD resolution.
In this day of $100 Blu-ray players, why pay $3,995.00 for one? Because the JVC SR-HD2700 Blu-ray Disc and HDD Combo Deck has the ability to record video directly through its HDMI input onto its internal hard drive. This means that any video camera or DSLR that is minus the HDCP encryption now has the means to take what has been shot and quickly and efficiently turn it into a finished Blu-ray disc designed for playback on any conventional BD player.
First thing; thanks for any and all advice forthcoming. Here's my issue, I'm trying to connect a JVC 750U to a Dell M6500 laptop via Firewire for the purpose of using the laptop to stream the feed. The laptop recognizes the camera in the Devices/Printers folder but I cannot see the feed from the camera to the laptop. Do I need something like the Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle to encode the video signal to a format the camera will recognize or is a piece of software needed to display the feed? Hopefully I've explained the issue concisely. Again thanks
Just joined the forum to ask for your advice since I'm a budding professional on video shootings.
I would like to buy a video camera for corporate video shootings and outdoor shootings (as of hobby). I definetely don't want a shoulder type camera.
Eventhough I loved the images of Canon 5D Mark 2, I read, it's not very fisible to buy that one for shooting videos since it gets warm quickly and screen isn't movable. And afterall, it's a photograph machine, not a video camera.
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.
