Re: The venerable GY-HD 110

Agree totally with Ervin's comments. Especially with the CF card recorder.
I can tell you guys this:
I just came off of a job that required minimal equipment (we were in a detention facility...yeah, a jail)
and did not have the luxury of being able to run back to the grip truck for lights, stands, grip stuff, camera stuff...or whatever....You get the idea, we've all been there somewhere along the line.
Anyway,
I shot it on my HD110U to tape.
I was amazed at the quality of the images (especially without the luxury of being able to light for detail in most setups!)
This was, and in this case is still a good working camera...I still have a love affair going with it!
I guess according to a lot of guy's it is a bit finicky, but treat it right and it comes right back at ya!
So, as the heading of this post states...VENERABLE!
Cheers to all.......

Re: The venerable GY-HD 110

What I really like is the ability to record HDV simultaneously to tape and hard drive with identical timecode.
This gives security (very occasionally I've had a corrupted file on my DR-100) and a tape that can be used as an archive. I don't know of any other camera that does this and its the reason I never upgraded to a JVC file only based camera.

I do a lot of work for the web now, the native progressive scan 1280 x 720 format is as close to HD for the web as you can get, which I'm sure makes a difference in final compression before uploading.

Geez, this seems like something I should have known but actually I never realized it is the only camera with this capability...amazing really!

Re: The venerable GY-HD 110

Hi,

Sorry to pick up such an old post but wondered if anyone might know the answer to this one...


I have a JVC GY HD 111 which I love, but i really want to go tapeless. I have found a GY HM 750e however it is missing the viewfinder.

Does anyone know if the viewfinder from the HD111 will work with the HM750e?


many thanks

David

David,
I have the 110U and 750U and have just checked. The answer is no. The connectors are different.


Regards,
Jerry

Re: The venerable GY-HD 110

Well I finally have run into the problem with the tip of the AC power plug breaking off inside the camera. This causes the camera to not recognize battery power. I have read that you can "twist out the yellow tip" with a jewelers screwdriver and the battery will work again. My question is if I do that will the AC adapter still work??

Re: The venerable GY-HD 110

I have been using my recently purchased HD111 for just over a month now and all I can say is WOW. Looks like my TRV900 will not be getting used too much any more. Thinking about getting at Letus Extreme if I can find one.
Figured I would keep this forum alive for another day

Cheers

Re: The venerable GY-HD 110

I still have two, and they have been the most solid camera I've had - not that I haven't broken them, but they're easy to get going again. Both viewfinders have been snapped off, but all back in action quickly.
