Hi Rich.

Yes, all shot on the HM100. And here's a pic of me shooting it, trying to stay still while standing in a 14ft fishing boat - thank goodness for OIS...

Hi Ben, just wondering if you grew out of the hm-100 and moving on to another setup?

Re: If you're after a GY-HM100 in the UK...

Not so much grown out of the camera, more that I'm working with a DOP friend more and more and he has his own kit - EX3 and, occasionally, a 5D MkII, depending on the aesthetic we're after. I'm also doing more live music and we use a venue in London that is fully kitted with permanent HD Cameras and switcher, with everything recorded to ProRes. Just doesn't make sense holding on to a camera that sits in a bag doing nothing.

I have toyed with moving on to something like an HM750. I did look into the various options a couple of months ago - EX1, 305, AF101 etc - and I think the 750 offered the best compromise for my work-flow, with all of the features I love about the HM100 - and with the option of being able to rent additional lenses as and when I need them.

On the other hand, I'd need to be shooting at least one project a week to justify the extra expense...

And that's where I think the HM100 hits a real sweetspot for a lot of people out there. If you can forgive it a couple of minor foibles - eg the aperture control on a small thumbwheel at the back - and get used to them, it offers proper earning potential and very good image quality in the right hands.

The camera has now been sold to Proactive, so contact them if you're after a used HM100.

I've still got some other bits and bobs, including a JVC W/A adapter and Cinetactics Matte Box for the HM100 for sale in the Classifieds section:
