Availability

Has anyone heard an update on the actual shipping date?
Some dealers are still saying beginning of July and I noticed B&H is saying August.
Thanks,
Stephen

My own "feeling" is that it'll probably be late July. Hopefully they'll tell us more at DV Expo East.

It's normal, if not the most common, to have the release date delayed.
I'd agree that end of August sounds the more likely.

The HVX is already rescheduled for late November/December.

Thats only a few months before the HVX. At that point a lot of people might end up holding off to wait and see. It will be even closer if Panasonic decides to come out in the earllier half of Q4.

GY-HD100E
Camcorder with 16x5.5 Fujinon lens, AC adaptor and battery charger AA-P30, Mic MV-P619 and mic holder, battery BN-V428U and SD memory card (16MB)

3,790.

4,130

BR-HD50E

2,480

AVAILABILITY
First shipments from the factory are expected to arrive in Europe in the second half of July.


SALES AND SUPPORT AND HANDS-ON DEMONSTRATIONS
Those of you who are not already in contact with one of our specialist JVC Professional dealers and who are wanting to purchase or have a demonstration then please contact our sales office manager, Brett Steventon, who will be pleased to recommend the most appropriate dealer(s). 020 8896 6000 or sales@jvcpro.co.uk

NOW AVAILABLE - new 18 page ProHD brochure incorporating GY-HD100/101 and BR-HD50
Whilst printed hard copy versions have not yet arrived in Europe, we will be pleased to let you have a pdf version immediately. Please either email marketing@jvcpro.co.uk to go to our main website www.jvcproeurope.com (As a 3MB pdf we did not automatically attach it for fear of clogging up any non-broadband email addresses).

ACCESSORIES LIST - coming soon
We will very shortly make available on the website and by future special email announcement to you as a registered ProHD person, a list of all accessories available or coming available not only from JVC but also from 3rd party manufacturers. We can tell you now about some key accessories that we are frequently asked about.

Battery Bracket
For existing IDX, PAG and Anton Bauer users we can reassure you that solutions are in hand. The bracket needs to incorporate a special 7.2V regulator for the GY-HD100 system, so it is more than just adding a battery plate. These solutions will also include an optional bracket on which to mount the JVC hard disk drive DR-HD100-40 (40 gb).

Wide Angle 3.5mm Lens
Fujinon prepared specially a second lens besides the 16x5.5 of the standard camcorder package. This lens is the Th13x3.5BRMU. To give you an idea of performance this is roughly equivalent to an 8mm lens on a 2/3" CCD. We will soon be announcing the price of the wide angle camcorder package.



In the meantime if you have any urgent and specific questions, please feel free to contact us on marketing@jvcpro.co.uk

We normally get stuff later in the U.S. At least, that's the way it used to be. I remember when Betacam SP was first introduced, I was in France on a 3 week shoot, and at all the post houses I visited (looking for one that had some NTSC gear) they had Betacam cameras and decks in continuous use. We didn't even have the first Betacam suite in KC yet, and we normally are right up there in jumping on the new stuff bandwagon. Before that, when
3/4SP was a novelty here, it was in common use in Europe. Also, I saw a much bigger JVC presence there than here, but that was some time ago.

But if you feel deprived by being behind Europe in cameras, you ought to see the cars. Ford, for one, I noticed a lot. Ford sells really cool, good looking, hot cars there; and here the same ones are frumpyized and detuned and not nearly as cool.
