This is the camera I've been waiting for for 7 years. It has everything I've wanted: Incredible HD quality, direct MOV/Final Cut Pro-ready file creation, SDHC card usage, a decent built-in mic... It has taken the quality of the video work I'm doing to a whole new level. I could not be happier with this camera except if I had a 2nd one to do simultaneous 2nd camera angles in the studio...

I am trying to make my filming worthy of the quality this camera produces!

This is pricey but worth it.. so if you have the $$, don't hesitate to buy this thing, you won't be sorry.

JVC has made it so easy to turn your home office into a full-fledged movie studio by using this streamlined prosumer camera in conjunction with Final Cut Pro. The .mov format is only the beginning -- moving media from camera to hard drive has never been easier, and the HD picture is gorgeous. The camera features every manual option a videographer/filmmaker could ask for to create professional-looking digital movies. I've used it for a few months already, and the investment was well worth it. If you have FCP Studio, consider dropping a few buck for this camera to complete the deal. The one drawback is that battery life runs short, but buy an extra, ya cheapskate.

For the price, the GY-HM100U is a decent investment, especially for the independent filmmaker with a limited/no budget.

The main reason that I ended up choosing to buy this camera is because it supported SD card file storage (nearly up to 4 hours on the highest HD setting if you know where to buy the cards), 24fps that lends to a very film-like look and feel to your footage, as well as basic components for audio recording IE: the XLR microphone inputs. An HD camera with all of these features at this pricetag is somewhat hard to come by, and finding this camera was a blessing. (UPDATE 2014: I rarely use this camera now because it lacks sufficient latitude. Get a Canon or Nikon DSLR.)

My only problem with the camera is that it does not handle low-light situations well at all. And by low-light, I mean situations where there is not a spotlight shining directly onto the set. The footage gets progressively more and more grainy depending on the amount of light in the shot, and even some well-lit candid interior shots using natural lighting have poor-image quality. I haven't really ever seen a camera handle this poorly when it comes to lighting a scene, and I have used the Panasonic DVX-100 which required constant attention to lighting. But what the DVX could handle, the GY-HM100u requires even more, something that baffles and annoys me. It makes documentary style shooting outdoors or inside a hassle, as the final product will end up looking very grainy unless the area is properly lit. When filming candid scenes, portable lighting isn't really an option.

All in all, I like this camera, and I'm glad that I was able to find it. I just wish that it was able to handle lighting a bit better than it does.

Verified Purchase
The camera was everything I read that it would be. There were some reviews that said the low light was not that great but I found it to be more then adequate. I would recommend the camera.
