  1. So it actually exists! I was losing hope…

    Can you check the AF ability of this new camera. I rely on AF a lot more with ENG cameras, so it would be good to know how the HC550 performs.

  2. How does a wireless Lan work in a small portable video camera like the JVC? Does it log into your cell phone hotspot to transmit or what?

  3. Hi Philip.
    This is very interesting indeed as the HC500 is high on my list.

    My questions would be how the camera is in terms of optical quality and low light performance, given the variable aperture. Also how visible the screen is outdoors on a sunny or bright day.

    I am also interested in the ease of use and navigating through menus. Very much looking forward to the review.
