Superb!

My copy arrived in the post today (for those ordering their copy from Australia, it took about 2 and 1/2 weeks to arrive here via Canada Post).

It's an absolute treat to be walked through every aspect of this camera by the world's leading ProHD camera expert. (And absolutely no offense is meant to our other leading experts and their fabulous contributions to this board!)

Honestly, it's so thorough that I reckon you could take someone who'd only ever shot with a sub-$1k consumer DV camera and all you'd have to do is give them this DVD plus the camera and lens still in their shipping boxes and that person will be able to do a competent job of assembling and shooting with the camera (Tim even gives a 14 minute section on Depth of Field). That person's artistry with the camera is a different subject, of course.

Dealers should ensure that no JVC ProHD camera is sold without this DVD.

And I was also impressed with the compression done by Tim for this DVD. It actually stood up quite well when viewed on a 1200 line screen (and this was the 480 line NTSC version).

Kudos to you, Tim.

Hi Tim,

Might there be an inkling as to whether the PAL version is fairly imminent?
I'm half toying with ordering the NTSC version, although I can hang on that little while longer...!

Many thanks.

Something to fix for future DVD printings

Hi Tim.

I just followed the procedure for masking dead pixels in your ProHD DVD and found that it "didn't work". The scroll wheel kept skipping over the PIXEL COMPEN option and I couldn't get it to stop on that option (and so was unable to select it).

So I did a forum search and found this post by Ken Freed of JVC:

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showpost....26&postcount=5

where he mentioned that the procedure will only work in 24p.

So I changed my frame rate from 25p to 24p and then the pixel compensation procedure worked perfectly and fixed my dead pixel.

I watched the DVD section again to see if you'd mentioned about 24p, but couldn't find any mention of it.

Perhaps, for the PAL DVD and future printings of the NTSC DVD, you could superimpose a lower third title for a few seconds stating, "You must be in 24p mode for this operation."

What format did you use for your dvd

Tim,
I have enjoyed your dvd very much. Which camera/framerate did you shoot the stand ups of yourself with?

Got my copy

in New Zealand today. I couldnt believe how quick it got here. Took about 7 days.
I am enjoying exploring deep into the menus of this camera and learning some new stuff.

Thanks.

Is the PAL version any closer to release? I noticed the last few posts are from those in PAL lands... I want to purchase a copy for the camera team, as we have a feature coming up soon and I am sure it will be an invaluable piece of the kit. I know that here in the UK we can usually play NTSC discs, but would be great to have the 'proper' version (especially if it has the bonus content/corrections mentioned previously!)

Cheers
Dan

^ Aye will second that. I'm sure the NTSC will be fine, but could just about hold on a little longer for the PAL version if around the corner.
Cheers.

Aye and I'll third that!

Aye and I'll third that!

Tim, this is impressive stuff, really very useful indeed. Put me down for a PAL version just as soon as its available - doubtless you will let us all know when to prize open and dust off our PayPal accounts.
