Pros and cons

According to our camcorder expert
  • Pros:
    The HM70E has a dual battery space, which makes it possible to switch batteries while the recording continues.
  • Pros:
    The JVC GY-HM70E has 2 card slots for simultaneous recording or seamless continuous recording.
  • Pros:
    With slow motion recording, you film in 300 fps, after which it can be played back in slow motion in 720x576.
  • Con:
    The audio is recorded with a 3.5mm mic jack connector. This is of a lesser reliable quality than a, for pro, more standard External Line Return (XLR) connector.

The JVC GY-HM70E HD is a shoulder camera that compels prestige. With this professional video camera on your shoulder, everyone will give you room to film. It has a 29.5mm wide-angle lens with 10x optical zoom, a range that is kept stable by the optical image stabilization. The lens has an diaphragm of f/1.2-2.8mm, which gives you, even when you completely zoom in, a large aperture. Thanks to the light-sensitive Back Side Illuminated (BSI) Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (CMOS) sensor, it's possible to film in a minimum exposure of 1 lux (equivalent to a night with full moon). The JVC GY-HM70E HD has a dual card slot and a dual battery system. This makes the camcorder ideal for long recording days full of important moments.

Note: the JVC GY-HM70E HD comes without a microphone.
