JVC GY-HM700L17S Features

  • Familiar Face, Astonishing Results: The GY-HM700 looks and feels just like JVC's previous ProHD camcorders; the shoulder-mounted ergonomics people have come to know are featured with all manual controls in their proper place
  • 3CCD High Resolution Sensors: The 1280 x 720 1/3" CCDs featured in the GY-HM700 have sophisticated spatial-offset technology along with Adaptive Pixel Correlation
  • Native File Recording to SDHC: The GY-HM700's main method of recording is to SDHC Class 6 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
  • XDCAM EX Capable: Users have the option of connecting an SxS memory card module, transforming the system into an XDCAM EX capable camera
  • 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 the HM700 with a 1.22MP viewfinder, allowing operators to see as much detail as possible
  • Retro-Cache: 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
  • Variable Frame Rates: More necessary these days is a camera's variable frame rate ability. This feature allows videographers to take advantage of both slow motion and fast motion cinematic effects by increasing and decreasing frame rates
  • Built-In Clip Viewer: Viewing footage is quick and easy. Just call up the clip viewer menu and review your shots instantly--extremely useful on set
  • Enhanced 17x Fujinon Lens: The included high-quality bayonet mount 17x lens from Fujinon offers increased wide angle capability (4.5 - 77mm f/1.6) along with: New Ergonomic Grip Design, Quick Zoom Function--Rapid One-Touch Wide-to-Telephoto Action, Cruising Zoom Function--Set Pace Zoom Capability
