As with any progressive format, like film, pans should be done slowly. You will learn the right speed with practice. Your shutter speed will also have an impact. If there is a subject in your pan, say a surfer, pan with the subject on high speed pans. I would recommend a Pola and lots of ND filters while shooting waves in sunny Hawaii. Or the dual Pola variable ND trick.

Can I regain audio control with pre-amp (DXA-8)

Can I regain some or any audio control with my hd10u by using a device such as beachtek's DXA-8 which has a pre-amp, gain, and other controls, or will auto functions in the camera simply cancel out my efforts. And if so, then is there any way to regain in-camera audio control. I figured enough time have passed so that if there is a way someone would have figured it out by now.

Quality

I own a Jvc Jyhd10 and a Canon Xl2....My cousin who dabbles in film making came up from Pittsburgh. He owns an ag-dvx100a. We did a shoot together and I think he was very very impressed with the results from the JVC. Now I'm not gonna say that the dvx100a isn't a great camera because it is. However at the end of the day when we started comparing Raw footage on a 28 television the Jvc definately held it's own and many there said the picture was better. Having said that I find that the Jvc is not an easy camera to work with, but if you take your time you can get great results. I do love XL2 as well :).

That is the "cam" in a nutshell!

"Flight of the Phoenix"

Hey, I think they used the HD10 on the extras to the movie "Flight of the Phoenix". Check it out - during one of the shots that horrible green light shows on the footage. I'm pretty sure it's the HD10 or the GR1.

Cool... although I haven't seen this movie yet, just out of spite, because I'm such a huge fan of the original version by Robert Aldritch.

lens adapter sizes- 52mm, 58mm + 72mm

Never having screwed one on, I feel quite naive about lens adapters. If memory serves--for one reason or another--both 52mm and 58mm lens adapters work with the GR-* cams.

I want to buy not rent an wide-angle adapter, but I'm using an XL-1, which is 72mm (so I'm told). (The idea is to get an adapter I can use for both, if possible.) I called up the store and the man said a 72mm adapter could never work with a GR-*, and a 52/58mm could never work with an XL-1.

Is this correct?

ok thanks for all the help folks

and the answer is:

get a 58mm converter and then step up in the case of the canon and step down in the case of the HD1

Service from local dealer top notch

In June of 2003 I bought an HD10 from Industrial Video in the Cleveland, Ohio area. As I recall, I paid a couple hundred bucks over the B&H price at the time, but the camera was brand new then. I was able to play with the camera, pay my money, and walk out the door with it.

Recently, a white pixel started showing up intermittently, and I took it to the dealer on March 28th. A week or so later, I had an estimate, and I had the camera back on April 22nd. The camera was sent to JVC, and the dealer double-checked to see that the repair was done properly. They were always responsive and cooperative.

The bill was $181, and I am now pursuing the one year extended warranty because the camera was purchased on Master Card. I must provide paperwork to MC, and I should get reimbursed. We'll see!

So many companies are hard to deal with. Industrial Video is definitely an exception!

I go with a local dealer, too. I bought the extended warranty, so I should be good to go.

GR-HD1 Playback Problem

I recently bought this camcorder and am pretty satisfied with the
results. I shot one mini-DV tape in HD. It played back nicely on my
HDTV. The next day when I wanted to play it again, it wouldn't. Once it
said "Cannot decode audio or video". When I fast forwarded the tape I
could see the pictures, but it did not play. However, a newly shot tape
played back without any problem.

Then it happened to another tape on which I had recorded a few minutes
of experimental video. Trying to narrow down the problem I discovered
that when I stop the tape in the middle, take it out, and then put it
back, the tape somehow gets corrupted and does not play anymore.
Sometimes it happens the first time I put it back and sometimes I have
to repeat this couple times. It only happens in HD mode. I tried SD
mode and it worked perfectly every time.

If I leave some tape in the beginning (~30 sec) and then rewind the
tape every time before removing it from the camera, this problem does
not show up. I tried it about five times and the tape was still playing
good. This may be a recommended way of ejecting the tape, but it should
not be mandatory.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Can someone do this
experiment on his/her GR-HD1 camcorder? I would really appreciate any
help. If it does not happen with other cameras, then it must be my
unit. Otherwise it may be a design flaw and all GR-HD1 owners should
know about it before they lose something precious.

Please help. Thanks a lot.

Aver,

Sorry to hear of your problem. I've had an HD-10 for two years now, and have not seen anything like that. Have you tried capturing the video. It might capture OK, while not decoding properly in the camera.

Sometime back, I got a JVC D-VHS deck. I was surprised to find that I could make a firewire copy of a data stream recorded off the air (even 1080i) onto the HD-10. The camera screen gave a message indicating that it could not decode it, BUT it played back fine through the D-VHS deck's decoder, and could even be copied back to the D-VHS.

In short, you may be able to get a good firewire capture (or copy) even though the camera's decoder doesn't like it. If the camera is new, send it to JVC. If you have to pay for the repair - I guess that's a judgement call.

Good luck.

David,

I appreciate your response. The capture also does not work. I don't have access to a D-VHS deck yet, but I will try it. I saw one more such issue reported a few months ago in this forum, but I don't if and how it was resolved.

It may be due to the tape quality. I was using TDK DVM60 tape I bought at Costco. When I use a Panasonic tape I am able to eject and replay it. I did it a few times and it has played fine so far. However, I still feel nervous about it.

The camera is new but it was not bought from an authorized dealer. So I don't know if JVC will honor the warranty. I will try it anyway.

Regards.

Release Me, a short film, on web now (shot with HD10)

http://homepage.mac.com/hmcknight/re...eTheater8.html

"Release Me", shot on the HD10, starring Chantal Simpson and Ben Affan.

It's in DV and small, but at least you can see what Jon Fordham and I did in December 2003. I cut it with the first Lumiere HD and Final Cut Pro 4 and 4.5. I chose Pixlet as the format to cut in FCP, and Apple told me I was the only person doing it. I never had a problem with it, either.

Check out the reviews of the HD10 here, by Jon:

Thanks,

Heath
