We received the unit from IBC, but unfortunately it was an engineering sample (not production level). We hope to get a production level product in soon so we can begin our testing...

Re: JVC Unveils New GY-HM150 ProHD Handheld Camcorder

Craig I owned the GY-HM100 the only issue that I had with it was battery life. I had to carry a least 4 batteries in my kit to get through an event. Does JVC have any plans on making an extended life battery for the GY-HM150?

My apologies for the delayed response. I've been on the road a bit.

JVC will continue to offer the BN-VF823USP as the standard battery offering, but other third-party batteries with extended life have been known to work with the GY-HM150. The Anton-Bauer ElipZ system also works well and provides hours of operation, even with their optional light attached.

One of my biggest beef with the HM100 is also the battery life (and also the inaccurate zoom rocker), it lasts 2 hours at best, with the stock battery, and generic ones. Half the time I am worrying about when I should change the battery during shooting.

Now with my Canon XF 100, I use generic batteries at $36 per unit that will last at least 4 hours. It is simply awesome...

Interesting camera. The only two things lacking are 4:2:2 codec and some waterproof casing.

How does the image quality stand with the Canon to the JVC?

Picture quality wise comparing to the HM 100, I think they are around the same in good light, I look at my XF and HM clips back to back, and they are both good. Noise wise , in my opinion, the XF 100 is better in low light. However, people are saying the 150 does better in low light now, so you will have to see for yourself. :)

Hi Craig,

I just purchased the GY-HM150 (upgraded from the GY-HM100). Where can I purchase the remote zoom controller for this camera?
