Well done JVC for being awarded Best Gear of 2020 for their innovative HC500 which I did the very first review of the HC550 back in February 2020 just before Lockdown.

The reason its only one part is because the weather was not good and the Pandemic struck in March 2020 and we are still in Lockdown a year later. Just got a text from JVC saying they will be only too pleased to send me an HC550 to finish my Review Part 2 after Lockdown.


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. How is the autofocus??

    HDW : Sadly its not in the same league as the Sony FX6. It’s one reason I hope to produce a Part 2 to look into the firmware and all the improvements since I had the camera a year ago.
