Re: New JVC GY-HM70 AVCHD Camcorder

I was searching for a handycam that would match me JVC GY-HM70. After seeing original MTS footage from the JVC GZ-GX1 in low light I knew that wasn't a good performer in low light. Dissapointing in my eyes and that confirms the review on camcorderreviewed.com.

Today I bought the panasonic HC-X920. After watching original mTS footage I decided to buy this one.

I tested it against the JVC in good and low lighting and I don't see much difference between these 2. That would say my JVC is better than I thought.

Both camcorders were in intelligent auto.

Re: New JVC GY-HM70 AVCHD Camcorder

I wonder which is the best focus settings for ceremonies like weddings.
Auto focus or the setting with touch priority switched to face tracking?

Hi Antonis

You definitely need to go manual with wedding ceremonies! I use auto just to get me in the ball park then switch to manual. I had one wedding ceremony on full auto focus in a park and about 10 minutes into the vows, the camera decided to switch focus from the couple and lock onto the trees in the background. The couple were NOT impressed. They seldom move out of the DOF range of a camera like the 70 so at the start of the ceremony, let the camera focus on the bride and then just lock it there in manual. Even at a decent zoom, my Sony EA-50's (which have a much smaller DOF due to the big sensor) are still perfect in manual but the AF could easily shift from the couple to the background without you realising it!

Autofocus is fine when you and the guests are running around and you need AF to keep the image sharp!
