Re: JVC 4K Camcorder Announced

It's an interesting camera, I'm really curious about what kind of picture it delivers.

I don't want to nitpick, but recording to 4 separate SD cards gives you 4 times as much chance that something will go wrong with your material, and I doubt that archiving and post workflows will be very happy about it as well. And it's 4 streams worth of AVCHD - one will have to have a pretty powerful workstation to edit this kind of footage with decent performance.

I also hope that the JVC app for stitching the files together does not introduce more compression than there already is.

My thoughts exactly. Still not a fan of using AVCHD to compress stuff. Near-lossless codecs are where 4K really shines. And parallel recording to 4 cards would be a nightmare for logging and binning.

Re: JVC 4K Camcorder Announced

Craig Yanagi from JVC is a very pleasant guy, tho here he seems to be only 5 mins ahead of us :)

Interesting to see a view of the right hand side of the cam and that you can remove the complete external 48V mic fittings and handle.

Cheers.

Re: JVC 4K Camcorder Announced

Sir :) Those are some really nice new cameras you've got there and enormous interest is being generated around the web. We're all looking forward to seeing some pictures.

Do you have any news on release dates down under and was your production affected by the Tsunami last year? Thanks.

Cheers.

Re: JVC 4K Camcorder Announced

The HMQ10 shares the same size sensor as the consumer JVC PX10 and the Everio GX1, HM550, HM1S, HM960 and HM860.
I wonder if all the new JVC cams use the FALCONBRID processor?

edit - i think only the new EX/V/VX/GX and PX cameras have the new processor. Most can do 300fps shooting.

I have a feeling if Sony announces anything like this, it'll probably be at NAB 2012. I could be wrong. Just my guess.

Re: JVC 4K Camcorder Announced

Since it will be possible to shoot in Full HD (1920x1080) by cropping 2x on the sensor, do you think that means it could be used as an HD camcorder with a 85mm-850mm zoom ? (42,5mm-425mm x 2)
If I'm right, that may be interesting for Wildlife…

When cropping 2x it's going to become critical that the lens be rather flawless. I guess we'll see how useful this feature is once the camera comes out or more footage is available.

Re: JVC 4K Camcorder Announced

I'm looking at all the stats and watching all the videos - does this camera have ND filters?

Re: JVC 4K Camcorder Announced

What's interesting about the camcorder was the decision to go with 4 HDMI 1.3a adapters to output the 4K signal, HDMI 1.4a supports 4K output with a single cable. From my research, there are only a handful of 4K monitors that have 4 HDMI inputs available, but far more 4K monitors/projectors that can do 4K over HDMI 1.4a, so the output they chose limits your display device options.

People are curiously wondering why they would shoot in 4K res now when I always was under the impression to shoot as high a resolution as you can now and you can alwasy downsample and output to a lower resolution later. Start high, work down, plus you are a step ahead of the curve when 4K is more mainstream.

Re: JVC 4K Camcorder Announced

There are a number of factors that add up to great images, shooting and recording at 4k resolution is just one, you'd also be interested in dynamic range, how good the skin tones are, how well it handles rolling shutter and other artefacts.

Quite apart those considerations, you'll have to consider how practical the camera is in the rough and tumble of making a film.
