HD MiniDV from JVC?

Hey everyone,

I was surfing the 2 Pops discussion group and came across a post from a member there about a new HD MiniDV camera from JVC.

Unfortunately, the page is all in Japanese. Here is the link:

http://www.jvc-victor.co.jp/show/ceatec/sankou_dhm.html

Here is what the poster had translated using Excite's translation portal...what I was wondering was if someone could translate it and see if this is correct and what are your thoughts on it?

JVC has a mega pixles HD mini DVcam showing in Ceatec Japan. Below details are straight from "www.Excite.co.jp" translation software

1. 1 / 3 type MEGA pixles cell progressive CCD corresponding to a digital Hi-Vision movie are carried for the first time as progressive CCD in the world.

2. It is the first in the world as a noncommercial video camera. Record reproduction of a high-definition and high definition 16:9 wide Hi-Vision image is realized. High-definition image record of 525i (DV), and 525p (MPEG 2) and 750p (MPEG 2) is possible on a MiniDV tape.

3. The highly efficient HD zoom lens of newly developed "optical hand deflection compensation system" loading which realizes the stable high-definition digital Hi-Vision image was adopted.

4. The rotation formula grip of the new way of thinking which raises the flexibility at the time of photography by leaps and bounds is adopted.

Thanks,
Ted

Yes, real cool. The cam looks nice too. I posted this info this morning, in the Industry News forum (here). Looks like Panasonic's sister company wants to take a bit of glory away from Pana's DVX100. Actually, the JVC might even be the better cam (once they both come out).

Chris, you'll have to start another forum or perhaps add this JVC on the new DVX100 forum. Just a thought.

On the surface this camera looks great, but the reality of it is that it is recording the 720p in native MPEG2 not DV. It's a step in the right direction as far as consumer cams with native 16:9 and HD goes, but with MPEG2 recording it's still got a way to go.

If there's enough interest in it Frank then we'll sure make a forum for it.

By the way this is a single-CCD camcorder.

Single or not it's a step in the right direction. Everything HD and with a "p" is a step in the right direction. "P" means 50% decrease in rendering times. My pal Rob Nilsson shoots everything in b/w so he won't mind a one chipper ;)
