JVC GY-HM750 Overview
The JVC GY-HM750U is a unique high definition camcorder which combines the tried and true GY-HD100 series form factor with a solid-state recording system. The GY-HM750 records directly to widely accessible hot-swappable SDHC cards and boasts the fastest acquisition-to-edit workflow in the industry. Fully capable of both 1080i/p and 720p recording, the camcorder is ideal for a wide variety of production scenarios, including electronic news gathering, digital cinema, and much more. This model comes equipped with a Canon 14x lens.
Familiar Face, Astonishing Results
The GY-HM750 looks and feels just like JVC's previous ProHD camcorders; the shoulder-mounted ergonomics people have come to know is featured with all manual controls in their proper place. From there, JVC has raised the bar by giving hot-swappable solid-state recording to the masses in the form of SDHC recording capability. By taking advantage of either JVC's direct-to-edit Final Cut Pro format or by utilizing the well established XDCAM EX codec* the GY-HM700 is a solid performer in virtually any production environment.
XDCAM EX compatibility only available with SxS optional media recorder module.
3CCD High Resolution Sensors
The 1280x720 1/3" CCDs featured in the GY-HM750 have sophisticated spatial-offset technology along with Adaptive Pixel Correlation. The result is high resolution imagery comparable to full-resolution CMOS sensors without the known problems associated CMOS, including skew and "wobble", making the camera an ideal for tool for sports, event coverage, and news gathering.
Native File Recording to SDHC
The GY-HM750's main method of recording is to SDHC Class 6 or Class 10 memory cards. With its 2 hot-swappable slots, the camera is capable of recording up to a maximum of 6 hours of continuous HD recording in 720p. The format can be easily edited in Final Cut Pro: simply drop files into a timeline and start editing! Bravo.
XDCAM EX Capable
Users have the option of connecting an SxS memory card module, transforming the system into a XDCAM EX capable camera. Take full advantage of SxS throughput and download times, while having the ability to cut naively in virtually all major NLEs, including Adobe Premiere CS4 and Apple Final Cut Pro.
High Resolution Viewfinder
Gone are the days of needing to use focus-assist and external monitors. Verifying focus is now as easy as looking through the viewfinder. JVC has equipped with the HM750 with a 1.22 megapixel viewfinder, allowing operators to see as much detail as possible. Have no fear, the focus assist is still there just in case you need it. Very cool.
The camera can be set to ensure you never miss a shot by using the "retro cache" function. This feature works by constantly recording for a few seconds even when the camera is in standby. The moment you hit the REC button, the camera saves the footage that was recording seconds prior, assuring no important footage has been missed. This feature can be critical for documentary filmmaking, where subjects can be both uncontrollable and unpredictable.
Variable Frame Rates
More necessary these days is a camera's variable framerate ability. This feature allows videographers to take advantage of both slow motion and fast motion cinematic effects by increasing and decreasing framerates. The dramatic impact can be useful for sports, wildlife documentaries, and high definition cinema.
Built-In Clip Viewer
Viewing footage is quick and easy. Just call up the clip viewer menu and review your shots instantly, which can be extremely useful on set.
The system comes with professional BNC video outputs, including HD-SDI uncompressed digital output.
