Once again it’s very refreshing that JVC come out and admit there is a fixable bug with the GY-HM600 recording interlaced pictures at 1080 25p. We will give you a link for the firmware update as soon as it becomes available.
Every new electronic product has bugs they usually get fixed with an update 3-6 months down the line, the difference is that JVC are on the ball and fixing these bugs almost before the product has flooded onto the market, unlike another video manufacturer who took well over 6 months to fix a known issue with their camcorder.
Kris Hill “Please note that JVC Professional do acknowledge that there is currently an issue recording 1080/25p on the first production of GY-HM600E camcorders. Please be assured that we are working on a fix that will be available very soon. The problem lies when you review your 1080/25p footage – instead of the intended progressive format it will look as you have shot it interlaced.
