Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

If I can buy a Canon T3i for about the same price, why should I buy the PX10?

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Jordan,

I used to own a T2i which is very similar to the T3i which you're considering. I am also considering the PX10. Here is my opinion:

1. 1080 60p. The PX10 shoots this framerate the T3i only does 720 60p.
2. Reduced moire/aliasing. The Canon DSLR's suffer from this especially at 720p.
3. No 12 minute clip limit. The Canon camera's have this limit at the native bitrate.
4. No overheating(assumed). Although the T3i should be better than the T2i in this area.
5. Headphone jack to monitor audio. The T3i even with Magic Lantern will not allow audio monitoring.
6. Full HD HDMI monitoring. I believe the T3i only allows a SD quality output.

Before I buy th PX10 though, I want to be able to download some raw clips to test with CS5 on my system.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

found a sample video made by JVC:
JVC GC-PX10 Full HD 1080p Hybrid Digital Camera/Camcorder - YouTube

unfortuately looks too low resolution for the 300 FPS footage. oh well. will keep waiting.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

From the web site, software is included with this camera that only works on Windows. Is there anyone familiar with what this software's capabilities can do who would be willing to comment?

Is the video format compatible with NLEs on Apple platforms?



thank you,
Ron J.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

The PX10 has a 1/2.3" chip. This has always confused me with consumer cams. Is that somewhere in between a 1/2" and 1/3" chip?

Nevermind. I just saw the link to sensor sizes here in this thread. Very informative!

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

OK, a question - the camera does not shoot in AVCHD 2.0, or whatever it's called. Right now, I can shoot with a Panny TM900 at 17mbps and burn all the video directly to a DVD and watch it on a Bluray player. Really nice for home videos, etc.
I was under the impression that you can't do that with this camera's AVCHD 1 codec. Can anyone confirm this? How does one get the video to a DVD from this cam?
I want to buy a small HD consumer cam, and my final choices right now are the TM900 and the PX10.

Re: 36 Mbps JVC PX10 $899

Here's what camcorderinfo thinks of it:

"With its clumsy design and terrible user interface, we can honestly say JVC failed in their attempt at making a true photo/video “hybrid” device. Solely for recording video, however, the JVC GC-PX10 is not a complete waste of time—but it is still seriously overpriced for what you get."

Except that it has one killer "app," that being the 2 plus hours of super-slow motion record time. For some people, that alone will worth it.
