NAB 2014: JVC Camera News

Some things for broadcast and news: the GY-HM850 and GY-HM890 are new shoulder-mount, 3-chip 1/3” HD camcorders in the mold of the 790, but using high-sensitivity CMOS sensors instead of CCDs. The 890 differs from the 850 by being dockable…

Review: JVC GY-HM650, the Camcorder for News and Journalism?

The HM650 really is a very clever camera, packed full of features that make it a great choice for news shooters. It has multiple codec and recording options, great for when you need to pool or share media. It has WiFi and 3G/4G connectivity via a USB host port where you can add wireless dongle. Brilliant for uploading material via ftp or (via a future firmware update) streaming your footage live. It has a 23x zoom lens, so it offers both a wide angle field of view for press conferences, color shots and GV’s as well as a long telephoto range for capturing those distant stories behind the police lines or security barriers.

JVC GY-HD100 and Canon XL H1 Feature Set Comparison

This page offers a chart which compares some basic features and specifications of the JVC GY-HD100 and Canon XL H1 camcorders. It is certainly not intended to position one model as being better than the other; it is really intended for casual perusal only. It is my very strong opinion that a person who is actually considering a purchase of either camera should most definitely not use this chart as the basis for a final decision.
