The HMR10E professional AVCCAM recorder provides the flexibility of low cost, SD memory card based recording and full 1080 and 720 resolution capture in a small, portable unit. The new AVCCAM recorder uses AVCHD (MPEG-4/AVC High-Profile) compression and is ideal for applications in video production, sports coaching, healthcare, law enforcement, remote operation/ surveillance, and much more. Equipped with an HD-SDI input and output, the HMR10E AVCCAM recorder is also suitable for back-up recording from any HD-SDI-enabled camera or for use in studio or event production. The 0.45 kg unit features a lightweight, ergonomic design suited for handheld use (3.7in x 4.8in x 1.7in) and also has four threaded holes for flexible mounting. 

The HMR10E records stunning full HD 1920×1080 resolution images in three recording modes – the highest quality PH mode* (average 21 Mbps/max. 24 Mbps), HA mode (approx.17 Mbps) and HG mode (approx.13 Mbps). The HE mode (approx. 6 Mbps) records at 1440×1080. The HMR10 records in HD formats including 1080/60i, 1080/50i, 720/60p and 720/50p. With input from the AG-HCK10 camera head, the HMR10 will also record 1080/30p, 1080/25p and 1080/24p.

With the HMR10E, users can capitalise on the compact size, cost advantages, solid state reliability and the widespread availability and low cost of SD and SDHC memory cards. Using just one 32GB SDHC memory card, a user can record three hours of full resolution 1920×1080 video and audio in PH mode, four hours at HA mode and 5.3 hours at HG mode. In the HE mode, the camera can record up to 12 hours of 1440×1080 HD content – all on a single 32GB SDHC card. SDHC cards containing AVCCAM recordings can be played directly in a growing number of affordable Panasonic Blu-ray players, plasma displays, Sony PlayStation 3® ** game machines, PCs and other devices.

In addition to HD-SDI input/output and an external mic input (stereo), the HMR10E comes standard with interface connections including the HDMI out and USB 2.0, and is compatible with TC/UB recording. Professional audio features include a built-in stereo speaker and headphone mini jack. Compact and lightweight, the handheld unit has a built-in 3.5-inch color LCD monitor that displays content in thumbnail images for quick viewing. (The HCK10E camera head can be remotely controlled while images are checked on the LCD monitor.) The HMR10E operates on battery or 7.3V DC power, and has four threaded holes for mounting applications.

For editing or playback, professionals can instantly transfer content from the SD card to Mac or PC computers with an SD/SDHC card reader or by connecting the HMR10 recorder directly via its USB 2.0 interface.

The ultra-compact HCK10E camera head nicknamed POVCAM is equipped with three newly-developed 1/4”  2 megapixels HD resolution 3-MOS imagers to deliver high-quality image quality. Weighing a little over 0.23 kg, the HCK10E camera head is ultra-slim (2.1in x 2.2in x 4.8in) and features a 12x optical zoom lens with Optical Image Stabiliser (OIS) and Dynamic Range Stretch (DRS), a dynamic range expansion tool that simultaneously compresses highlight information and boosts shadow detail in real time. DRS, mic settings, iris, focus, zoom control and power are supplied from the HMR10E recorder. 

Other features include a built-in microphone, 1/4″ 20 socket for mounting and 43mm lens filter size.  Cables connecting the camera to the recorder will be available in lengths up to 10 meters and are removable at each end for added flexibility. A 3-meter cable is standard.

NAB News-Panasonic 3D conceptual camcorder

Categories: Miscellaneous 4 Comments

pana-3dBlayne Murphy, Panasonic “Each component of Panasonic’s innovative 3D Full HD production system has unique features. The twin-lens P2 camera recorder enables the capturing of natural and high-quality live 3D images. Thanks to the non-mechanical solid-state construction of the P2 system, the camera recorder will be compact enough to allow more flexible 3D shooting, thereby maximizing the creativity of the filmmakers by eliminating the stress factor from the use of the equipment.”

Just when I thought Panasonic camcorders could not get any uglier, the worst bit is the 4:3 LCD which has propagated itself along a great line of recent Panasonic camcorders…they really need to address this as we are living in a 16:9 world now, I have not filmed 4:3 for over 2 years now !

The 3D camcorder above thank goodness is conceptual so if they want my advice…NO MORE SQUARE BOX CAMCORDERS PLEASE WITH 4:3 LCDs !!!

CrumplePop Example Video from Gabriel Cheifetz on Vimeo.

crumple-pop-via-z5-review

Crumple Pop is one of those strange programs that comes along and once you get your head around what the hell it’s trying to tell you…you buy it.

I was looking for  something a wee bit grungy for my tum tabs in Final Cut Pro 6 for the videos on HD Warrior reviews and now I have it, which in my case really fits the bill…gaffer tape with ink pen…I love it.  Pre NAB special of $35 (Will be $65)
