DR-HD100 at ZGC

Well, I just took the plunge and purchased a JVC DR-HD100-80. Not only was Christine helpful, they have it in stock, and they are the least expensive around that I can find. $1499.00 for this thing is hundreds less then everyone I searched.

Keep them in mind.

Let us know how well it works when you have had a chance to play with it.

Funny you should mention this. I just purchased a filter from ZGC a day or so ago having never heard of them. The customer service was excellent (especially compared to some of the other retailers I've been buying from recently). They didn't have the filter in stock but tracked one down and had it dropped shipped to me. I believe the woman I dealt with was named Barbara. Very highly recommended after one transaction.

If you have the Anton Bauer adaptor, get the mount and the power tap cable. I was using the Noga arm for a while, but the Anton mount is so much better. It goes behind the Dionics.

Carl, how is the DR-HD100 performing?
Does it has it's own battery or can you feed power from the IDX output connector for example? How long does it last?
Any drop-outs?

Hey Marc,

I just received it yesterday, and my camera just arrived from JVC, so I have not tried it yet. I don't know about IDX, I am an AB user, and the power tap is what I will use to power the devise. It does come with a battery.

Ah, I thought you were already using it.
Concerning the power tap, it should be the same connector for the IDX.
Let us know how it goes shooting with the device.

Hey Carl,
Any news on the DR-HD100? Is it working fine?

DR-H100 and Avid Xpress Pro HD

I have the latest PC version of Avid Xpress Pro HD and .M2T files are supposedly fully supported. Can anyone tell me why it's been impossible for me to IMPORT the damn .M2T files into Avid Xpress Pro HD. What am I doing wrong? I keep getting something like a "unrecognized MPG file type" error. This is frustrating. Somebody please help.

Jaadgy,

I have imported from the DR-HD100 to Avid Xpress Pro HD before, and it worked. I used the Avid "help" in the program to guide me through it. Have you looked at the Avid help, or called Avid tech support?

Regards, Carl
