Don't leave home without it

The UV/Haze filter should be the first purchase anyone makes when they buy a camera (digital, dv or traditional still camera). It protects the lens from water spray, dust, dirt, etc. and is a whole lot cheaper to replace than the lens.

wide angle for HD1/HD10

I want to get a wide adapter lens for my HD1 (which I use only for personal use).The primary reason for the wide anfle would be to capture more of the in-door scene (My first son is due in March and their may be many living room shots). I have done some searches and have figured out that Century probably has the best ones, but I had a few questions if any one can help:

1) will the wide angle lenses screw up auto-focus on the HD1?
2) will they effect the f-stop?
3) is the smaller size of the Century DS-55WA-58K and advantage or disadvantage (how does that work)?
4) would I be ok with a Kenko or Raynox - and if so which one should I go with (I'd like to pay as little as possible while still getting a decent lens, but would pay $250 for the Century mentioned above if that is what it takes to get a decent lens)?

Thanks for any advice that you can provide.

Get the Century - they make the best possible glass. It will not effect your stop or image quality at all. razor sharp edge to edge. Focus is always critical with these cameras. I didn't find it hard with the Century on it though. AF works fine. I might be willing to sell mine. email me at steve@rccm.org

Continuing on the wide angle for HD10 subject, I have the same need and was considering the Century DS-65CV-58 so as to not limit existing lens zoom. And, I really don't need the flip over fisheye capability of the DS-55WA-58, nor the extended .55X angle.

However, adding to the confusion is the 16:9 Widescreen Adapter lens (DS-1609-58). Is there some reason that I would or would not consider this lens? Since it is more expensive, I would just as soon have a reason not to consider it. But, I would like to purchase the best lens for the device.

Thanks.

Is there a JVC HD Camcorder Focus Group?

The engineers in Japan are slaving away on the next generation of the GR-HD1U/JY-HD10U. But what is guiding their design? What goals have they set? This leads me to wonder why a focus group hasn't been set up, of current jvc camcorder users, and their wish list for the next camcorder. Someone obviously has to provide JVC with a link to this forum, and tomorrow, history can be made.

I assume you want 24p, 3-ccds, manual focus, manual iris adjustment, and manual exposure speed, the last two of which can be locked. How big a camera would you accept, and what is your target price? Equally important, what are you willing to sacrifice to get the price under $4000?

They have people out there complaining that we complain - that's all I can tell you.

If you're smart you'll keep your purchasing options open. We'll be hearing some hopefully good news by April 2004.

Murph,

Sometimes people can't keep their camera purchasing options open, and need one ASAP. But if you can wait, wait. I hear a lot of people in the HDV industry are expecting big announcements at NAB.

JVC battery will fit with what video light

Okay, just trying to save a few bucks, but I have like 7 JVC battery packs and was wondering if anyone knows of which portable on camera video light might fit with the JVC battery. I know sunpak lights fit with various sony and jvc batteries, but not sure if our HD10 JVC batteries would work. Thanks.

JVC HD10 and Slow Dolly Shots

I've read a few articles where the reviewer of the HD10 mentions that one has to be careful with moving this camera during recording (One article says that it is best to keep this camera static at all times when shooting a digital movie.) My question is, can this camera be effectively used by slow moving dolly (or crane) shots? Is this a bad idea due to the automatic exposure? Thanks in advance.

I have had no problems at all with using my HD10's on my crane. With proper setup and care you shouldn't have the problem with the dolly either.

Just in case anyone else ever comes up with this question....there is no video light. I had to get the XL1 VL10i and use my XL1 batteries and hook it up to the hotshoe of the JVC. Can't wait for the XL2 HD cam...

Lisa,

The XL2 camera being HD is a rumor. We have a special post about the XL2 so rumors won't keep building:

Please read this before posting items like that up, so we don't get a bunch of unsubstantiated rumors.
