JVC GY-HM100E

Clip was shot as a test of a JVC GY-HM 100. I was looking for a subject with a lot of fine green detail and extreme back light to see what the sensors would do. And some action of course to see how the handheld part with this super light weight camera would feel. And I choose this particular subject to see how I could operate awkward placed buttons and a focus ring without stops as a pro camaraman. So focussing and setting aperture were a bit of a hassle with this low profile camera. It comes in handy as a second unit or for video journalists that don't want to be bothered by camera operation but like a better picture quality. The LCD and view finder are not ideal to focus on your subject, however there is a focus assist with coloured edges availlable in the menu. Anyhow I seemed to have managed most of the time. Camera sells for 3.600 euro. I used a bit of colour correction and grading to get this result. On the audio side only the extra (mono)mic on top of the camera was used. I choose the 720p50 option to shoot this clip. Edited in FCP with out a problem. Material was shot as Xdcam EX 50 35 Mbps in a .mov wrapper and could be imported without any problem I used a Xdcam timeline as well. Enloy the clip even if it is spoken in the Dutch language and judge for yourself. A good camera a bit on the expensive side however.
