According to the article:

"the GY-HD100U can output an uncompressed 720/P60 HD signal"

Yikes! Can this be right? Now, if someone comes out with a firestore-like device that accepts analog component inputs at 720/P60, and records to an nice, fat, edit-ready codec...

What would be the bandwidth requirements for this? About the same as 1080i/30?

Man , that's one beautiful formfactor ! W/o speculating on the specs because we're just @#$%$ in the wind , I'm wondering what is that black circular object on top ? Could it be an antennae ? Sorry for the " typical dumb question mode " but I've never seen one of those . thanks Kurth

To me, it looks like a speaker/headphone... situated just about where your ear would be if you were looking through the viewfinder.

That little round thing looks like a hinge, or a Vulcan Universal translator so you can record you audio in any language.

Heh. From its position, it's probably an earphone.

Very interesting ... the WEVA website appears to have removed the picture and the story.

Chris, thanks for putting up that photo.

I'm not very familiar with JVC cameras. Anybody have any info or educated guesses as to what kind of lens-mount this cam might sport?

Advisability/possibility of adapting XL-series lenses to this cam?

Are there any likely adapters kicking around the 1/3" realm which might facilitate promiscuous lens-swappage?

I just gotta ask! Does that circle on the aft part of the handle (just above the J in JVC) look like an earphone? Look at the the distance the circle is below the eyepeice and then trace your finger from your eye back to your ear. Built in one-half headset?

Or maybe its just a cover over the "Easy Button" and they'll unveil it at NAB.

Bandwidth drain from everyone (and their dogs) linking to it. LOL!

The only factor I see here is that the SD XL lenses *might* not be up to snuff for HD--they are pretty good lenses though, one might be able to use them... There's only one way to find out, and I'm sure whoever does will happily post here... Also, I know plenty of adapters were made for various lenses to fit on the XL cameras (I know I saw a PL adapter at one time, along with a horde of SLR still lens adapters), so I'm sure someone will make one to put the XL lenses on the new JVC if they prove good enough.

According to the article that has since been pulled from WEVA, I believe they said there would be a 1/2" adapter available from JVC to use standard 1/2" lenses, which would certainly open up your lens possiblities (especially if some SD lenses are up to snuff).

This is why I rent cameras now--I own the HD10 and use my friend's FX1 religiously, but I'm not buying anymore! :-)
