Is there a reason for this?
The GY-HM600 will support standard AVCHD. The GY-HM650 adds H.264 recording with the additional frame rates.

Re: New JVC cameras

Both camcorders will have variable frame rate recording. Specifications aren't finalized, yet.

AVCHD standard format of 1080 60i is the current specification to conform to broadcast standards. AVCHD Progressive implementation is something we will be looking into as well.

Re: New JVC cameras

VFR... #@*& YEAH!

Thanks Craig. I look forward to seeing what they are. I don't know how you could beat the 1-frame increments of Sony's EX series, but if you can implement that, it would be fantastic. As long as it isn't fewer options than the HM700, I'll be excited.

---

I'll have to say since I'm still on FCP7, the HD MPEG2 is better for me to work with at the moment (quicker log & transfer), but AVCHD I think is great future proofing, because what I've seen it is a better codec. When I move past FCP7 to something that can edit more video natively (like FCPX or Premiere Pro) I'll probably be more open to AVCHD.

I think it would be great to have all the same recording rates in HD MPEG2 & AVCHD, when my post production flow changes, all I have to do is go into the menu of my camera instead of looking for a new camera.

Carig, if possible for AVCHD & HD MPEG 2 to have the same offerings (or at least most of the same), that would be ideal.

The LANC control will be for zoom, focus, iris and start/stop.

Thanks Craig! A true event camera. I will give this camera a look next to my XF300. Though it will be hard to pass up the 4:2:2 of the XF300.

Re: New JVC cameras

Any updates coming to the GY-HM 710? I am done with the hand held camera game.

There aren't any immediate changes to our current HM700 series line. They're all doing quite well in their respective segments.

I will be curious to see if you observe differences, if any, with the recorded material.

To quote the engineering team at JVC Professional, "Anything's possible from a technology standpoint."

We'll be looking into this as we get closer to the shipping date later this year.

Re: New JVC cameras

Hi Craig,
And whatabout the interchangeable lens version of the GY-HMQ10, that was shown during the CES? Is it still on tracks?
That would be great for wildlife documentary.

Probably true but I am in the habit of using secondary color correction on everything I shoot and the 4:2:2 MXF just does a great job. This is where I would test between the two.

I too am hoping the F11 number is in a normal shooting mode and as clean as the XF300s.

1. F11 @2000 lux, 0db gain.

2. Better.
