Accessories on JVC Pro sites

Gday Carl,

thanks for all your input to the forum, my question, or maybe request is that the JVC professional sites, where you have an accessories table as you've pointed to on this thread, that only a few items actually have hyperlinks showing and explaining more about the product.

It would be immensley helpful if they all were linked with a bit more indepth info on what the item looked like, and what it actually does for you. The new bracket would be a good case in point.

Also, other HD200 series users may point this out better, but the included Vwedge tripod adapter (KA-V100) x 1, is this the same as the KA-551U? Or do we need to fork about $500AUD to mount these babies on a tripod?

Thanks Carl

Adam

I second this. Links to info would be very helpful.

What I have usually done is put the part number in B&H, and I usually get the info. However, in some cases, it doesn't come up, and in other cases -- such as the bracket discussed nearby -- there is no picture. Links to full info on the accessories would be helpful and appreciated.

MTO / ShooterSlicker

I use an MTO/Shooterslicker to hold my wireless receivers. It only costs $35.00 It's basically a saddlebag that fits over large camera batteries. The bag has velcro straps that attach to your camera's handle and around the battery. Below is a link from B&H.

It holds 2 receivers. It's great for run-and-gun shooting.

Bracket: HWR-HD100KIT

Carl,

I jumped the gun when I said "very nice". It's nice that the product is out there....it would be really nice if there were some pictures. Any snaps out there?

HD200/250 options (wireless/hard drive recorder)

I'd also like to see photos of the IDX rigs. What I find especially curious (painful!) is that the HWR-HD250KIT is so much more expensive than the 100KIT, and requires an additional part. Is this "base plate" the IDX battery mount plate I already purchased with my LE-HD250KIT ? A replacement with different fittings (already have the A/B plate on ice), or some additional modification to the whole rig (that the 100 series doesn't require!?)
I think there is a picture of one of Tim's rigs with this, but it diodn't answer the question. I'd prefer hard plates, but that $35 soft bag is looking real pretty to the wallet side of my brain.

HWR-HD100KIT FOR: GY-HD100U/GY-HD110U with IDX A-E2HD100 V-Mount Battery Plate Adapter INCLUDES: one (1) A-HWR Heavy Duty U-Bracket & one (1) FSCable Power Cord $190

HWR-HD250KIT FOR: GY-HD200U/GY-HD250U/GY-DV5100 INCLUDES: one (1) A-HWR Heavy Duty U-Bracket & one (1) FSCable Power Cord & Base Plate to attach A-HWR $315

Bump for Carl

Any idea of if it's possible the things we've stated above is to be considered Carl? And also if someone could still point out to me my question regarding the vwedge tripod plate adapter.

Thanks

Adam

V wedge

Adam,
I assume the v wedge you are talking about it is the front mounting section attached to the camera. This is designed to lock into the tripod plate (KA-551U ) which mounts to the tripod (or tripod QR). Yeah, it's a bummer.
I negotiated with my dealer for a break on the plate while buying the camera. It is included with the HD250, and on many tripods, not required for the HD100 series it seems. The good thing is that, unlike on the 100 series, it does have a rear lock and support. I never like the floating single point mount of the 100's.
I also checked to see if my old JVC DV500 plate would work, but ohhh noooo..., that would be too easy.
The plate did come with an additional front wedge plate, which I assume the 100 series needs to use it.
(anybody want that?).
You might find that someone with a 100 series camera bought a plate, and then found they don't need it. As I understand, if the tripod quick release plate has enough adjustment, it's redundant. 100 series owners would have to chip in to answer that one.
