JVC GY-HM850U & JVC GY-HM890U07/15/2014
In the following video, Mia McCormick introduces us to JVC's new ENG-style, shoulder-mount professional video cameras, the GY-HM850U and studio-configurable GY-HM890U. The video opens with a discussion of the multi-codec recording system of the cameras, which are supported by nearly every major editing program, and include a 50 Mbps setting that meets the requirements set by many broadcasters. Also covered is the Funjinon 20x lens, with its f/1.6 to 3.0 minimum aperture and 29 to 580mm equivalent focal length. This lens ships with both cameras, and contributes to their 2,000 lux sensitivity at f/11 and 60 Hz. The video concludes on what, for many, will be a most notable feature: the option to connect a USB broadband modem so that the camera can be operated remotely using a smartphone or other mobile device, which allows you to upload low-bitrate proxy copies of your footage securely to an FTP site. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at B&H.com.
