Re: BBC purchasing 500 HM650 cameras

I'm a BBC VJ and I've just been issued with my 650. It's replacing a Z5. Bit early to offer any meaningful thoughts but so far I like the zoom and the auto white balance, the mic bracket is yet again too far forward to allow a 416 and furry, and the icons on the flip-out screen are pathetically small. Fantastic HD pics but we broadcast in SD and I've seen varying downscaled results depending on which machine ingests the card.
