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.
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.
