Niether of the HDV cameras from Sony nor the XLH1 from Canon offer this and it is a feature much sort after by many video makers looking for the closest possible match with that elusive look and feel of celluloid film.

Jvx had lots of the HDV p footage characteristics i. Well there are two broadcast standard balanced XLR audio microphone sockets, a nice clear 3.

Additional to this, the HDE also offers fixed focus ring adjustment with exact focal length markings. There was a touch of purple fringing, especially when zoomed gg-hd101e in close.

If you are not familiar with the zebra assist function, it is just like the name suggests. My own expectations were very high for the HDE; in fact I? The camera also has the usual playback functions and buttons i. If anyone is slightly confused by my opening sentence; let me clarify. As I’ve pointed out already, this is not a format war, i and P are two different beasts for different shooting applications. This is especially since all the other major camera developers have opted for and are virtually ignoring except in some cases as an optional extra.

You have to shoot like you would with a Cine Super 16 or 35mm film camera i. You will learn to appreciate the manual system that professional lenses employ and after all, if you can learn how to use a professional manual lens system like this, then you can use any high end broadcast professional lens too as they all use the very same system.


Usually with DV camcorders it is quite difficult achieving a nice shallow depth of field where the background is thrown out of focus. So, what else does it have? This is the only true way to ensure your images are in pin sharp focus at both ends of the lenses focal length and it is how the professionals have been doing it for years.

There is much to be debated here of the merits of 24p capture over 25 or 50i. When even the cheapest consumer camera is capable of this it seems odd that a camera like the HDE could not in our tests. How clever is the Google spam filter? I suspect JVC did their market research and in particular looked at the Canon XL1 and XL2 and asked themselves the simple question of what was it that made this camera so popular for small and indie production and even not so small and indie.

Here JVC are to be praised for the rather good ergonomics of control placement, which in use generally, seemed to be just where a user would want them to be.

However, I wouldn’t let this put you off. Then there is the Aperture Ring. Each shot has to be planned and worked out in advance to prevent the flicker phenomena, that is just as present in film shooting as it is in progressive shooting, in fact, more so.

There was just a tad of purple fringing in places, but nothing too noticeable and certainly no worse than any other HDV camcorder I have used.

Likewise, the Progressive manner of capturing and constructing an image is often lauded as much more?

Even when projected digitally 25p or 50i is just as easy as 24p. Just looking at it you could be forgiven for nvc that it is not going to balance on the shoulder that well.


Other Fujinon gy-hd10e1 Canon lenses can be bought for this camera and they include: That said, the position of the LCD at the very back of the camera body makes it virtually dysfunctional, or at the very least awkward, to use in shooting.

The shoulder pad can also be slid back and forth to find a comfy position.

Once I unzipped the bag and took the HD out my first impressions were excellent to say the least; this is one really well built camcorder, in fact camcorder seems too mainstream a word for it. The supplied shotgun microphone however is a little on the poor side and whilst functional enough, will probably be quickly replaced by experienced users with a Rode or Sennheiser shotgun mic.

I should point out here that the tape used was one supplied by JVC and was brand new out of the packet. All the levers, buttons, XLR sockets and various switches felt like they will withstand been switched and pulled thousand of times without any hint of wearing or breaking off.

If you switch this to manual exposure mode there is still a button just in front of it, pressing this button kicks in the auto exposure mode while your finger keeps it depressed so if you want the camera to give you an estimation of what the exposure should be you can depress this button for a second, then let go and the camera will hold that exposure, even if you recompose your shot into different light.
