Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

It's kind of funny when you think that this inexpensive camera is 4K 60p for 2 seconds. and something like 6k 30p for maybe more (its not specified). Rodriguez would have love it.
Definitely a sign of of times.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

640x360 at 300fps interpolated to 1280x720 or 1280x720 at 60fps interpolated to 300 fps. In my experience it is much easier to up convert resolution then it is to up convert framerate. While it is very soft I'm not sure if I would count it out just yet. Most of us tech geeks may freak out at the thought but then again in theory a Canon 7D only resolving 540 lines with moire sounds pretty bad as well but look where that thing has gone. People are a lot more forgiving of resolution then they are of jacked up framerate conversions. This could make for some very interesting web based series.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Though the Casio EX-F1 has absolutely horrible quality in it's 300fps slow mo mode. Eventhough the resolution is small, also the compression artifacts completely destroy it.

We did try a test though with the Canon 7d but had to use a vhs-style filter to get them even close... Lazer Soldier - feat 300fps vhs slow mo! - YouTube

Hope the JVC fares better.

B&H Price Reduction~
Price: $899.95
Instant Savings: -$100.00
You Pay: $799.95

Strange thing is that this discount ends Nov, 4th, yet it's not available and we are at the end of October (supposedly available Oct, yet not avail yet!)

I'm hoping for a release any day now as to read "reviews."

It's tempting. I like the concept and design. The FALCONBRID chip looks pretty amazing. I think JVC will use it on their little 4K camera coming out next year.
But I already spend a bunch on my FS100. Actually, after spending two days last week shooting in the rain, I like the idea of the NX70.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Glen how do you know they are releasing a 4k camera next year, has this been announced, did I miss it?

What is the exact resolution of 4k?
Seems like a new bandwagon is coming and everyone will want to be on board.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Here's a few links to the camera. It looks like it's built on the HM100 body. It has 4 HD/SDI outputs, with each one covering 1K. Not sure of the release date, but I've heard sometime next year. But it may never be released as it is, who knows?

Notice the PX10 in the foreground. It seems both cameras use the FALCONBRID "brain."

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

If it can keep highlights in check and has decent dynamic range- should be a great start to 4K!
Thanks Glen~

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

'Digital Camera Review' really trashed this camera's still imaging capabilities......the video capabilities weren't tested as they leave that up to their sister site......but for stills they really trashed it....sad!

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

This looks like an interesting camera. There are some things I would like to know however:

1. Does it output a signal through HDMI while recording?
2. Does it stop down in 1/3 increments or full stops?
3. What is the minimum aperture it closes to? F16, F22 etc...
4. What are the choices in shutter speed in video mode?

I noticed it's now in stock at B&H. Has anyone acquired one yet?

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Well I've setup a Google alert for any videos posted regarding this new JVC.
From what I see it produces very sharp video (lens) but does suffer a small amount when movement is introduced into the video. It also seems to exhibit highlight clipping and has a terrible color cast when skies are in the picture......it could make a camcorder replacement for an average user but I think the enthusiasts here will find the diminished dynamic range and color casts not within acceptable ranges for their works.

Sad, JVC always brings new and exciting products to the market first and somehow manages to miss the mark for dedicated enthusiasts........this camera will likely see a price reduction as word is already circulating as to it's poor still image quality.....it only has video as it's strong point and at that it seems average at best.
(It's already down $100 @ B&H)

I'll skip on this purchase- they almost had me!
(They need to steal some Canon engineers~)

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

I've noticed some price jumping during this last 2 weeks at B&H.....as you've stated this camera was lower priced and just went up. The Panasonic GH2 also has undergone this same price fluctuation as well as other cameras as well. Not sure if the upcoming "shopping season" has anything to do with it- but it might be the culprit. At one point the GH2 was $899 w/14-42 lens which was a sweet deal and with the 14-140 it was $1299......they are up a bit now on those prices......

.....guess the stores are gearing for the holiday shoppers.
