Enhanced Cinema Gamma

Enhanced Cinema Gamma?? I wonder if that is what film out was supposed to be in the first place. Hopefully you guys a NAB will get a good look at the HD 200 tomorrow. Let us know what you think.

Unfortunately I have a reshoot tomorrow, Gotta pay for my 100.

Cheers

Thanks David.

I'll have to go through our wishlist and see how many things were actually implemented in the 200 and 250!

I notice a few things I remember suggesting like a "flip" option those using homebuilt mini35 adapters, and dual purpose BNC for YRB or TC IN and TC OUT.

This is the second mention of native 24P support in FCP, so we'll have to see for ourselves when we get there.

I'll definitely be going to the JVC booth on Tuesday afternoon after the press briefing.

Nice!

Hmm. Time to start saving for an HD250!
The HD200 looks good too.

I would like to know more about JVC's new improved codec.

No mention of GY-HD7000....

No mention of lenses either. I wonder if the len's stuff is left to Fuji or would new lens options be JVC branded. We'll see..


Ooops.. I take it back. "including the new 1/3 mount HD lenses being introduced at NAB 2006." This was listed in the HD200's info.

The Camera's put the 60p on tape? I can't wait to give that a try.

The PL mount adapter sounds like a really useful option. Can anyone think of a reason why this wouldn't work on the HD100 as well?

JVC is certainly cooking up a storm with ProHD this year. Glad to see the success of the HD100 has paid off.

Native 24p TC

They talk about "native 24p time code" - is that something new or is it already implemented in the HD100. I haven't worked with 24p yet so I am curious to know how that works...?

Hi Earl,

This, in my mind, is a very significant product, especially for those of us who own super 16mm lenses. It is not just a physical adaptor but a reimager, like a mini35 or redrock, but with a frame size closer to super 16, which means better (reduced) depth of field performance than the 1/3" native. I was at the booth today during setup, and from what I heard, it will work on an HD100 as well, but the image will be flipped and upside down. Only the new cameras have a built in compensation for this. There is a lot of glass out there that may have a new life!

That's great to hear Andrew. I wasn't able to create a "flip" hack with a magnet on the HD100, but I'm sure there is an easy fix.
I wonder if the image on tape is also right-side-up?

Do you think this re-imager is moving ground glass, virtual or stationary?

Not really a fix but Serious Magic has announced that the new version of DVRack has a flip feature meant for Mini35/RedRock Micro and similar devices.

Hi Tim,

I got the impression that it is not moving, but I really have no idea. Will get to the bottom of it tomorrow.

Do I detect a slight "Jedi Mind Trick" in that sentence? I guess that means that they're supporting 29.97, but still haven't quite got around to 24 & 25. Apple, please prove me wrong...

The optimists like would say it means they can't spill the beans on Apple's goods. The pessimists would say they're worming their way out of something.

Both will know for sure in about 9 hours. Man, I gotta get to sleep.
