DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKER PUSHES JVC GY-HD100 TO LIMIT ON
30-DAY SHOOT IN
According to Cahill, “The GY-HD100 performed exceptionally well in all kinds of adverse conditions – it was knocked down by elephants, subjected to extreme temperatures and humidity of a tropical forest and launched from the cargo compartment of a speeding bus.”
the 30-day shoot, Cahill captured 30 hours of video documenting
“I liked the layout of all controls, and the accessible menu,” said Cahill. “Programmable camera settings allowed me to ‘dial-in’ the camera for various lighting situations faced when shooting documentary footage.”
The GY-HD100 also took a road trip of its own when Cahill and his crew traveled to one location on a bus. The driver forgot to lock the luggage compartment door and swerved around a corner, throwing Cahill's camera into the intersection. Luckily, Cahill had stored the camera in its thermodyne shipping case, which absorbed the shock of impact.
This documentary was Cahill’s first work in HDV. "At my age, I appreciate a whole lot of camera, without a whole lot of weight. And the easy-to-read menus are a sight for my old eye." Cahill lost his right eye during military service in Viet-Nam. As a result, Cahill feels, “The fact that the viewfinder on the GY-HD100 slides further than any other camera I’ve used was also a major factor for choosing JVC."
also plans to use the GY-HD100 to shoot several breeding and rescue centers
