JVC have gone 4K mad, not happy with the newly announced GY-HMQ10 4K camcorder JVC showcase a new un-named removable lens 4K camcorder. Dan Carr posted this interesting interview on Vimeo 4 days ago with JVCs Craig Yanagi.

The camera has a Nikon G mount allowing Nikon G lenses to be used because of their manual compatibility with the iris mechanism, using an even larger 4K sensor than the HMQ10.

This is incredible in fact only last year at BVE 2010 I spoke to the late Kevin O Malley who told me that JVC were not interested in large sensor cameras, I suspect Kevin was having a wee giggle at my expense, Kevin had a great sense of humour.

The word from JVC is that this is a technology preview at the moment and certainly not a product, JVC are showing some of their future potential.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
