JVC GY-HC500 codec question

The specs for JVC's new HC500 camcorder JVC Pro Specifications indicate the camera only records ProRes in the 4K UHD format. HD (1080p) is recorded in a H.264 format. If this is in fact correct, bummer. I would prefer to be able to record HD also in the ProRes format.

Re: JVC GY-HC500 codec question

No one has responded to this question, but from a minimum of checking it seems that ProRes is in fact only available in 4K ( and I assume UHD) with this camera... But that's okay, since it's easy enough to edit with and export as 1080.

On a related sidenote... Now that JVC has apparently purchased rights to the ProRes codec, wouldn't it be a nice surprise if it was offered as a firmware update for the LS-300...
