While filming my review of the Gekko Kelvin TILE and Karess LITE the door rang and the JVC HM600 arrived…the only one in the UK. I have one on loan for the weekend so I decided to start the ball rolling with a third camera, two Canons and the JVC.

If you have any questions you want answered about the HM600 camcorder send me an email to

Remember the JVC HM600 camcorder records at 35Mbps 4:2:0 or 4:2:2 out of the HD SDI and the HDMI sockets. Records onto SDHC cards, has a 23x lens with a 29mm wide (35mm) and a 667mm (35mm) tight.

From what I have seen so far I am very impressed with the HM600, I have the camera for this weekend only so if you have any questions don’t hesitate to send me an email.




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.

  1. I have the baby brother… the HM150.

    I love recording to inexpensive SD cards and into the format my NLE uses.

    JVC is really onto something with their family of camcorders.

    I’m looking forward to your review!

  2. Same here. Not expecting it to defy physics but still looking forward to the review!

  3. Is it worth waiting to buy the 650 for the extra video codecs and wifi?
    I will be using it for sport events and corporate

  4. Its a video Review and it is scheduled to be edited over the weekend but I can tell you I was more than impressed with the HM600.

  5. JVC is unique in terms of file format. We are testing the HM600 camera as well. Features are very good we have to see the recorded footage on playback.
