This was one of the few mornings that the rain stayed off to allow me to film outside with the new JVC GY-HM650. I am also producing a review of the Canon C100 and used the JVC 650 to film the studio shots.
This is as natural a skin tone you could wish for out of a camcorder and the new settings that JVC have implemented to reduce noise are stunning for a 1/3″ camcorder, when I talk about this camera you would think I was working for JVC but the pictures speak for themselves.
This is an interview we did with St Mirren goalkeeper Chris Smith with the JVC GY HM650 in the boot locker, I had 2 LED lights, one behind Chris with a 3200K gel and on in front with 5600K diffused.
One of the main differences between the 650 and the 600 is the ability to send a WiFi signal out of the 650 onto an iPad, it’s not real time but for surveillance or wildlife this may just sway you towards the 650.
You really have to view the pictures on a 40″ screen to appreciate just how good this JVC camcorder is, I will be editing the C100 Review this weekend and you will be able to see for yourself in 720p HD the pictures from the JVC GY-HM650 camcorder.
