How many people own an HD10 or HD1 (and/or still use it)

Just curious how many own an HD10 or HD1 and/or how many are still using it?

I own one, but I don't use it--haven't shot anything in over a year now, when I did a mini-shoot out with an FX1. I will be giving it to the leasing company this summer when I'm done paying for it. (Don't lease cameras like these.)

A whole new world

I just got interested in the HD1 for it's low price.

The choice for me was between a GS400, HC1 or this camera. I don't have it yet (came to a buying agreement with a DvInfo forum member) but from what i've read I don't think I'll be disappointed.

I intend to use the camera for shooting model airplanes. I distribute those things here in Europe and want to have demonstration video's, instruction DVDs etc. Being an amateur photographer (own darkroom, all-manual, medium format shooter, took long to accept that digital photography was no longer a toy, etc) I kind of fancy taking a shot at videographing myself. If it doesn't work out no problem: I have professionals standing by to do the production for me.

For family video's I have a Panasonic GS-17 laying around, I expect a huge difference in quality between the two camera's.

Own GR-HD1, but don't use currently. Breakthrough cam, disappointing that JVC chose not to offer a fix for it's few flaws, a factor in why I didn't return to JVC. In part, the same sentiment applies to the HD100.

Hey all,
I have the Hd10u and yep still using it.
Gonna shoot a short next weekend. I'm using it with Quyen's Letus35a adapter.
It's starting to fall apart though...the on/off button popped off and I had to super glue it back on...works.
Once the Guerilla 35 comes out I'll be getting that adapter also i just hope my cam lasts that long...and if it doesn't, well it's had it's fair share of work.

Thanks Heath,
Have you entered any of your shorts(3sisters, push/pull) into IFC's medialab?
I'd like to see any of your short movies. And looking forward to 9:04am.

Erik,

I will be shortly. Push/Pull was shot in DV (XL1 and GL1). Both 3 Sisters (FX1) and Release Me (HD10) were in five film festivals last year, which has us pumped for 9:04 AM!

Thanx,

heath

Hey Erik,

Thanks, man. I hope you're pushing the Denver film scene to great new heights! I have a former student who is hoping to move out there (for non-film reasons) and I'll make sure he sends you an email before he goes. (Probably by the summer or so.)

Pushing to new height?...How about just moving forward a tad?
:)
looking forward to that email

We got a bit off topic but at least we now know that the jvchd10 is far from dead and buried....uh right? Anyone else still using this camera?

Are you only on the HD10, Erik? I use the Z1 and DVX100a all the time.

yep.
Do what you can with what you got...I always say. Don't have access to other cams. Plus i really like staying 720p. So when the hd10 craps out. I'll probably end up going with the hd100u.

I used for two years, I keep using and I love it. It has been in Eurpe, Asia, Africa and all around the US. It is very robust and the output is awesome once you know how to use it. I guess I will move on to the HD100 but for what I do I find hard to depart from the HD1. With the new tools existing now, it is a pleasure to have this camera. When I bought it more than two years ago there was nothing. It was a real nightmare back then.

Love my HD10

I have the hd10 and an Xl2, I love both, however I find I use my Hd10 about 80 % of the time if it's a one cam shoot. Under the right conditions it works really well. Under the wrong conditions not so much...I will keep it till it dies for sure.
