It says all JVC ProHD cameras...

Where did you read that it doesn't support HD100?

Quoted from Press Release:

"LAS VEGAS, NV (April 14, 2008) -- At NAB, JVC previews the next generation of file base recording that combines affordable solid state memory and long length hard disk recording. The MR-HD200U is a new camera-mounted media recorder that attaches directly to any of JVC's award winning ProHD 200 Series camcorders."

Only works on the 200 series.

I wonder what this will do to the firestore line? Since I cant use it maybe I can get a cheap Firestore 4. Or maybe it WILL work but just not with all the bells and whitsltes.

I bet you dollars to donuts that it will work with any camera with IEEE 1394 and that records in m2t. Firewire is firewire. Nothing proprietary about it.

I hope you're right David. They do say it will "attach" to the 200 series and NOT that it will only work with the 200 series.

If someone can go by the booth, could you please verify this for us still stuck at work/home. Many thanks if you can.

Hopefully this thing can be powered by the 200's battery system. I was interested in firestore for a while but the fact that you need to have another set of batteries (and a dangling firewire cable) turned me off.

Looking forward to some pics...

That could be why it said 200 is the 110 doesnt come with Anton/Bauer so maybe if you have a 110 with Anton/bauer it will work. BTW How much??

photos of unit seem to show that it attaches to the A/B mount on the 200... This is not cool, because all of us hd110 users dont have that mount unless you paid for one or got the free kit... problem is I have the IDX :(

Now i don't see any wires attached, it might have an interface directly with the mount on the 200 and only the 200 making this another way for JVC to push you to buy the 200's ugh.

When is someone going to come out with a unit that has Y/Pb/Pr connection that captures 10bit 4:2:2 uncompressed right out of the cameras components... and can run off a battery and not be over 2k?? Now thats something that could change life for me.

well anyway theres the photos of it below....

Or it could be a CODEC issue, Where the 200 is capable of outputing AVCintra where the 110 will only do HDV?

It would be pretty crappy of JVC not to make this backwards compatable considering all the firewire issues us 100/110 owners have had and that theres not that big a difference between the 110 and the 200.

The unit really makes the camera look back-heavy.
