Macintosh incompatible (I guess this will only be true for the HD
work?) is understable since they are recoding an "illegal" signal
to the DV tape (namely, an mpeg2 stream. That stream is
probably packed within the standard DV structures/packets though)
and they only give you "PC" software. The software on the Mac
will not understand that signal (nor will any other PC software
by the way!!). Ofcourse they could have also made a Mac application.

I'm wondering what the image quality will be when recording
in HD/mpeg2 mode. Since the HD image contains 2.6 times as
much information you are looking at a 13 times compression
level (5 * 2.6) instead of the normal 5 times for DV.

Guess we will have to wait and see. Those true progressive
scan CCD's are very nice though. Wouldn't mind having those
on my Canon camera.

Keep in mind that this is a 1 CCD consumer-like camcorder with a small lens, and also geared to be a still camera, for consumers. It's just another JVC "Indie" type 1 chip cam.

Millimeter article

Here's an interesting JVC-related article about shooting HD on miniDV tapes.

Mac incompatible kills it for me...

I'm not giving up years of FCP learning to get a pc to edit this cam's footage...too bad- it looks like a nice cam- we'll have to wait til Canon makes something similar and makes it Mac compatible.

I have faith Canon, Panasonic and Sony have something on their drawing boards that will rival or eclipse this JVC...
Let me grab my GL2 and go shoot something...

If there is enough demand, they might write a Mac version of their software(required for editing). Perhaps some enterprising software writer will write a Mac version, also.

The fallacy will be that JVC will never see enough demand for a Mac version of their silly software. Most Mac users will have the same reaction that Steve had to the limitation; screw it, whe needs this thing? Sony, Canon, Panny will come along with something better.

It never ceases to amaze me how individually-intelligent people can make such slobberingly poor, bandwagon-driven decisions as a group, in this case JVC's "marketing" team.

I can understand the need to make their own software, BUT let us hope they
are also smart enough to work with Apple or Avid to get their system to work
on 50% of the market share (50% IS A GUESS!)
