By the way, I was told the HD1OU is only being repaired/serviced at JVC's Cypress CA service center, and that's where I sent mine. The phone number is (714) 229 8011

I talked to someone in JVC and am sending my camera the first week of June. I have too many gigs beforehand.

When you order from B&H, you'll never know until you get it. But from what I understand, that problem was fixed in later models. The earlier models needed a different kind of fix to remedy it.

Audio problems - finding which batch we got.

Can we post serial numbers and see what "batch" our cameras came from? I believe my audio is ok, but want to make sure.

Bought mid- 2003 -- Serial#: 11860178

Anyone else care to share? The serial is on the bottom of camera in plain few.

Also, has JVC sold 1,186,017 units?!!!

I have no idea how many they've sold Christopher, but yes, mine did need the audio fixing, it came back a couple of weeks ago and is now just fine.

Cheers

Murph,

That number sounds grossly too high. I heard a much lower number at the HDV Roadshow.

Can you guys perhaps post a few before/after clips to illustrate the audio problem? I received my brand new HD10 last Thursday and to me the audio, either recorded with the on board mic or AT897, seems fine. Regardless, I'd like to be sure there's no problem.

I'm sure it was just the very early models off the shelf that had the problem, for me it was only when recording through the XLR's, but it sounded like a very short slap-back echo was being added to the sound on input. The casual listener might not notice it, but if you were editing dialogue on a decent system you definitely would, I don't have any examples I'm afraid. If you're listening to well isolated dialogue such as you might get off a good Lav mike and you're not hearing it, your camera probably doesn't have the problem.


All the best,

Paul is right on both counts, esp. the fact that early cameras really were the only ones who had that problem.

I just recorded a piece of dialogue using an extrenal mic thru XLR and the audio came out crystal clear. So I assume anybody who will get the camera from B+H in these days will get the improved version.

So when the sound works good, how does it compare to other Prosumer cameras?
