With the same design as the GY-HD100U, the GY-HD110U implements a number of additional features requested by our growing circle of producers and cinematographers and now added to the multiple-award winning GY-HD100U:

Once again we in the UK get hit. I was told there was a 400 price increase over the preceding model.

None of those upgrades really excites me. At all. Since it doesn't look like it will cost any more, I guess it's OK, but no "wow" factor here. The main thing I'd be looking for is to have some more of the quirks worked out.

I really don't need the upgrades eithers, although they are nice...I wonder if JVC will offer a way to upgrade a current HD100 to this.

i'd seriously doubt it - tho most could be software updates

Those new features are good to have but it's not really much of an upgrade and certainly no reason for us all to trade in our HD100s!

For 720/50 or 60 on the 200 the trade-in might well be worth it though.

I was just saying that since it seems to be largely a software update, maybe the HD100 can get upgraded if desired...if not, oh well. I love my HD100 anyway.

Cap'n, now would I make such an insulting remark to someone so brilliantly named?

Steve, JVC is not offering a upgrade to the GYHD100 with the new specs on the HD110. The only way to acquire the new features is by purchasing the new GYHD110 camcorder.

This is why the GYHD100U has the Anton Bauer Promotion available and the GYHD110 does not.

The Anton Bauer promotion assists in getting rid of all current inventory, both at JVC and in Dealers stock. Considering that the AB promotion provides $1200 in free products, the GYHD100 is still a great purchase even without the new features.

I was just wondering, but don't get me wrong, I am much happier with the free AB I got than the HD110 features.

I dont get it. I read threw the list of features and new shoulder pad wasnt one of them! LOOK AT THAT THING! All nice and curvy.

I wonder if I could buy one of those and slap it on my outdated hd100s?

It looks like they also took the nice leatherette ear cup, and covered it with a foam pad.

There are HD100 Pics with the same attachements, but as we know, don't come with the camera. Not sure if JVC is changing it or not though, but I have seen those pics of the HD100 before.
