Bypassing the stock lens is not a budgetary option for probably most buyers. The optional wide-angle lens carries a retail price of about $12,000.

$12,000? I though it was going to be around $6,000...Oh, well, either price is out of my budget for now. What I'd love to see is an adapter for nikon SLR lenses in the near future.

Great for limited applications

According to the webmaster on that site. There are no optics inside the adapter (so there's no reason to expect this to be too expensive). And, the magification factor would be about 7xs. That means a 20mm W/A SLR lens becomes a 140mm telephoto? Great for wildlife and moon shots, not so great for indoor shooting. Definitely would need a rock-solid tripod with this thing on.

Thanks for the tip.

Exactly Steve. It's just the adaptor to attach the lens. No relay lens/ground glass system certainly. If you want a mini35, don't worry. P+S Teknik was showing off a prototype at NAB of the new mini35 for the JVC. They said it will be out as soon as the camera gets released.

Exactly. I was wondering why all the hubub about the "stock" lens?
IMO, this is a camera HEAD. What I like is that with 1/3" chips is
the 7.2 magnification factor provided by 'non glass' adapters using 35mm
glass AND/OR (almost) ANY lens @ 1:1 with a PS Technik.
That coupled with real 1280x720 CCDs and uncompressed 292M HDSDI
output makes this camera bigger than the VX1K when it burst
the "must have huge bucks" balloon.

Granted, it will still take huge bucks to get an entire 'real' HD system
together, but when the camera head is $5K instead of $60K, that is a
significant step in price reduction. There is a further price reduction
if lens one already owns can be made to work. That is about as good
a deal as you'll ever get for a massive upgrade in quality.

Don't know where you heard that, but there's no 292M HDSDI output on this camera at all. The only HD outputs are either a) the compressed MPEG-2 through firewire, or b) analog component.

You can get an external analog-to-HDSDI converter, but that's nowhere near the same thing as if it had onboard HD-SDI of the original digital video signal straight from the DSPs.

[QUOTE=Barry Green]Don't know where you heard that, but there's no 292M HDSDI output on this camera at all. >>>

At NAB, JVC was showing a studio model HD100e that had the tape
transport removed and replaced with an encoder that could be
switched between SDI and HDSDI output via two bnc jacks above the three
analog component BNC jacks.

This HD100'e' model was a test balloon according to the JVC reps. to see
if there was interest. I told them that this was the model I was
interested in.

Any firm release date yet? June, July? I'm still debating whether or not to rent or buy. If they release the North American version with less features than the EU version, I will not purchase. Rent maybe. Boycott maybe.

Think DV (ie PAL/NTSC)
