Too bad, it does not have 3 x 1/2 inch ccds instead of 3 1/3 inch ccds ? I guess it would be more expansive.

Re: JVC GY-HM710U ProHD

The JVC HM models from the 700, 750, 790 and now the 710 are all 1/3 inch. This came from the HD series. The 710 is the little brother of the 750 which is replacing the 700. The 710 has a few less features than the 750 but is a wonderful camera. There is nothing wrong with the image it or any of the HM7XX series produces and they all shoot both MOV or MXF.
Great camera for the money.

Re: JVC GY-HM710U ProHD

Is this the same pixel offset technology with 720 sensors or is it 1080 ??


"The GY-HM710 utilizes three precisely aligned 1/3" progressive-scan full-HD CCDs – one each for red, green, and blue primary color – and outputs full resolution in 1920 x 1080, both interlace and progressive. JVC's advanced ProHD capture technology incorporates a new patent-pending Adaptive Pixel Correlation Technique (APCT), and combined with TRIPLEX Offset technology it delivers exceptional resolving power, comparable to cameras with larger image sensors. The highly efficient ProHD form of H-V pixel shift, where the Blue pixels' sensor array is shifted 1/2 pixel horizontally, while the Red pixels' sensor array is shifted 1/2 pixel vertically (both referenced to the Green array), enables recovery of additional luminance detail between the photosites of each pixel. By applying the Adaptive Pixel Correlation Technique".


This is from the 700 series overview

The GY-HM700
3CCD High Resolution Sensors The 1280 x 720 1/3" CCDs featured in the GY-HM700 have sophisticated spatial-offset technology along with Adaptive Pixel Correlation. The result is high resolution imagery comparable to full-resolution CMOS sensors without the known problems associated with CMOS--including skew and "wobble"--making the camera an ideal tool for sports, event coverage, and news gathering.

Re: JVC GY-HM710U ProHD

The 710 is a slightly dumbed down version of the 700/750. Don't remember off the top of my head the exact differences but from what I've heard the 710 will do just about everything the 700 would do.

As for battery's and charger. these cameras are set up with the Anton Bauer battery plate. Now that doesn't mean you have to use AB batteries you could use less expensive 3 pin battery's however I don't know anything about them but to answer your question about cost, if you use AB battery's you would certainly need more than 1. I never carried less than 4. I'm talking about the Dionic 90 which is a 90 watt battery and would power the camera which pulls 24 watts IIRC, for about 3.25 hours if you are not powering anything else like an on board light or wireless receiver. When I used them to power a JVC500/5100 those cameras pulled a bit higher wattage and with light and receiver also running I got about 2.5 hours per battery. Of course the light wasn't always on and the receiver doesn't pull a lot of power. Anton Bauer is a great power system but not cheap. The battery's are about $400 each thru a reputable dealer like B&H. A charger can run anywhere from about $500 to 1300 depending an what you get. A 2 position intellicharger which will condition the battery's as well as charge them and work as a power supply is about $800, a 4 position about $1300. there are other chargers/power supplies but they don't condition the battery's which for me was very important.
Please keep in mind this is a professional type camera that uses professional type power. By that I mean the camera pulls a lot of watts and need a powerful battery system to keep it running. Most people, when they get into a camera of this type already have power since ABs are generic in the sense they work on any fullsized camera that has a 3 pin battery plate. I had my battery's thru a number of cameras and simply put an AB plate on the camera, it didn't matter what the camera was. I had them on JVCs and numerous Sony's. the power system should last longer than you have the camera if you take proper care of it.

Re: JVC GY-HM710U ProHD

I wonder if they will release a 25P/50i version?
