1/2" CCDs and it takes both miniDV tapes and full size miniDV tapes. Interesting. Watch out, Sony.

I thought it was interesting that JVC has included a "hi res frame mode"...looks like they're after canon too. The camera is $4995 w/o lens or viewfinder...check out the link as they've got all the specs, package prices etc. there for your perusal.

That means another $2,500-$3,000...

Street prices may vary, but with lens or viewfinder you can easily add another $2.5K-$3K to the $4995 price tag.

Don't get me wrong, the JVC is a very nice cam but it is nowhere near as cheap as the XL-1S.

Don't forget the Anton-Bauer batteries needed to power the beast. It'll end up being a $10k camera

Yup, with an EVF and a Canon 16x lens, it's priced at about $7000. Add another $1000 for a decent charger and a couple of batts, another $1000 for a set of remote zoom & focus controls. Appears to be a great shoulder-mount, I saw it this week at WEVA at a special demo not on the show floor. I've been wondering when JVC would break away from Mini-DV and get into full-size DV, and now this is it. They'll have two new full-size DV decks as well.

To be fair, this model JVC doesn't really compete with the XL1s. Yes, it carries a hefty price tag, but all "industrial quality" cameras do.

The image resolution on the previous DV500 is better than that of the XL1s with the manual lens. And that's what you pay for.

I think that's what were are trying to say, that the JVC is a heckuva machine, but you are not going to add one to your stable for $5K.

It is interesting to note, that the cam is going to use a full-size cassette at...did I read this wrong...miniDV speed? Makes for a really long recording session?!?!?

I'm sure they'll have a stock set up that they'll sell. The old DV500 went for under 5k easily. Of course the lens wasn't great (better than the stock Canon) and the veiwfinder was not terrific (but still better than the stock Canon).

I'm not knocking Canon at all. I love mine. But that's mainly because I use the mini35 with it. Otherwise I'd be shooting with my DV500 more often. Now I have it shelved and ready to sell.

Hi Nathan,

Just to avoid any confusion, Mini-DV is not a tape speed nor is it a tape format. Mini-DV refers only to the size of the cassette shell.

The format is DV, and there are two cassette shell sizes... mini and full. Mini DV is much more common. The Pansonic AJ-DVC200 full-size shoulder-mount camcorder uses the full-size DV cassettes (as a matter of fact, it won't accept the Mini-DV tapes), and of course you can use full-size DV tapes in any Sony camera that takes full-size DVCAM tapes (they're both the exact same cassette shell).

For awhile, the Pana 200 has been the only camera that takes full size DV cassettes without being a DVCAM camera (instead it's a DV format camera). Now, the JVC GY-DV5000 will be another full-size DV camera, with the ability to accept Mini-DV cassettes as well, something the Pana 200 can't. Hope this helps,

Thanks Chris. I knew the miniDV and DV were the same, but I thought DVCAM was higher speed. I guess I am confused about the two formats.

DVCAM is indeed higher speed... you always have to recalculate how long a DV cassette will last in a DVCAM camera or deck. This bit me in the butt one time. A 180 minute full-size DV cassette will record for only 120 minutes in a DVCAM deck due to the higher speed of DVCAM. Hope this helps,

My brother found a couple of sony DVCAM tapes in an old studio. Can I use these in my XM-2? I didn't even put them in for fear of damaging the heads, although I know this is unlikely.

Am i right in thinking these cassetes contain the same tape as miniDV tapes?
They are marked 40 minutes, so I guess they would get 60 in my XM-2?

cheers

40min DVCAM will get you 60min in an XM2, but unless you're already shooting Sony tapes, you'll want to run a head cleaning cassette before and after. DVCAM stock is marginally "better" than DV stock.

Hey! I thought this was a JVC GY-DV5000 thread. It appears we've strayed off-topic. Hope this helps,
