New 3.0 upgrade NOW AVAILABLE!
Mobile Newsgathering is now faster and better than ever with the introduction of JVC's GY-HM650. Small and light enough to be used anywhere, this advanced camera surpasses the performance of many traditional ENG style units and offers capabilities never before available on any model. Dual codecs make it possible to record for 2 screens simultaneously: full HD on one memory card and a smaller web-friendly file on another card. Transfer the footage back to the station with the GY-HM650's built-in FTP and optional WiFi connectivity.
The GY-HM650's long (23x) wide angle lens is perfect for fast paced ENG. The camera offers superb low light performance with F11 sensitivity at @2000 lux
