Interesting picture. It's also interesting that on the camera body it says
"DV" and not "Mini-DV". Is this just a mock-up/temp thing, or will this camera actually accept a full-size DV cassette? Perhaps there is going to be a new size HDV cassette?

HD100 wallpapers

I fixed the misspelling and made two desktop wallpapers out of the image.

One will fill up your 30" Cinema Display and the other will fill up your 23".

I took a good hard look at it, and realized, YES, it does need a brick on the back to keep it balanced!

Also, that little padded speaker, is that for my mp3s of Radiohead and Franz Ferdinand to come streaming out while I shoot? <g>

Just my speculation, but Focus Assist is probably where the camera automatically goes to full open iris and/or enlarges a portion of the viewfinder image so that you can check focus better. Sony had or has a similar feature on their DSR line but they called it "EZ Focus" or something like that.
That could very well be it too. I think my old Beaulieu 6008 had something similar to that -- you hold down the button and the lens automatically zooms to full telephoto and opens the iris to maximum wide open, so you can establish critical focus; then when you release it it goes back to the settings you had.

Perhaps that's what this camera does? That'd be a nice feature.

I heard universal translator/lie detector based on recently acquired Vulcan technology.
They field tested it with Celebrities and Politicians and it was 100% accurate.
Everything they said, no matter the language, was translated to the word 'B#LLSH#T'. This new high tech feature will be especially useful to the ENG crowd.
Yet another inovation from JVC. hehehehe
(just kidding folks).

Nice work, Murad!

By the way for those interested, I really don't think those are built-in rails at the lower front of the camera body. I'm betting those are sliders for the shoulder support -- it can probably be adjusted forward and backward by an inch or two or three.

Joe,

FUNNY!

Chris,

What were the misspellings? I'm guessing the camera is a prototype with Photoshopped stickers, etc., put on, since the prototype might not have it.

It was me, Heath--I saw the word "ASIST" on the photo & couldn't resist mentioning it.

Chris, I suspect you're right about the silver rods.

Tim Le & Barry Green are right

See here for a description of the Focus Assist function:

"A patented 'focus assist' function exaggerates detail in the viewfinder to facilitate focusing."

Jeez, 720P24fps with uncompressed audio, hard drive support, removable lens, and uncompressed 720P60 outputs....but you're telling me it has NO bulit in rails???

How do they expect to sell this piece of junk!
:)

Obvoiusly I'm kidding.
In all seriousness I really was looking forward to the built in rails...but you're probably right chris, that makes a lot more sense.

At least we still have that satellite uplink module for wireless internet streaming that most people seem to have mistaken for a headphone.
(yes guys, that's a joke)
:)

Chris and Luis - I disagree about the rails . No. 1- there's no straight line between the rails and the shoulderpad . That would require some more complex mech - like a cam or gear to move the pad when if one wanted a rail just for the pad , it would be on the same height and you can't see the rails continuing thru to the pad. I bet it's rails - temps just to fill the holes . A mechanical designers' for what it's worth one penny guess. Kurth

The new photo from the Videosystems article makes it seems that those are not rails. The diameter of those rods in that picture look way too small and they're way too low to the bottom of the camera. It beats me what they're for, but they sure don't look like standard 15mm rods to me.

On the CML list, someone has posted the following information from a JVC rep:

" will incorporate the use rods that will enable a variety of follow focus and matte box configurations to be applied."

You got me as to whether or not it's true.
Perhaps we could have some JVC folks help us out here?


Here is the link to the CML HDV forum posting
There's some good info in there.

CML requires a log-in, but I too saw that initial message from Taylor Wigton, I suppose I can approach him and see if I can talk him into posting here directly.

Oh ... yeah, sorry about that Chris.
I didn't even think about it.

Perhaps you could ask Taylor for permission to reprint his post on DVinfo? (or at least the relevant portions?)
