Does this camera have an option for a manual zoom, or is it a servo zoom only?

You can switch the ring on the lens to focusing or zooming...

My GY-HM100 was delivered yesterday. This camera is awesome. It takes a while to get used to the size and controls (still learning). The images this little cam produces are utterly amazing. Better than anything I have used, in this price range. The LCD is not ideal, but useable. The VF is fine. Very, very happy with the purchase.

i think it's too pricey being a 1/4" sensor cam. i rather get the HMC150 or wait for the HMC40.

I'm actually comparing this to the GH1, for some reason. (even though they're in different leagues) I would definitely throw down with this if it were just a slightly higher in cost to the GH1.

Saw this cam at HDExpo, spent about 60% of my time at JVC's both looking at this and about 35% at the Canon booth looking at their cameras. I was so impressed with this little guy. They took me through the process and it was so smooth. I was totally sold on both quality and mainly workflow.

Hi there,

can anybody help me with a good side-by-side comparison of the HM 100 and the Pansonic HMC 151? I want to shoot an ultralowbudget featurefilm (want to use a letus adapter aswell), therefore I am up to buy a new camera and cannot find any hints which picture is the better one in terms of bright sunligt, lowlight or skintones... thanks a lot for hints or answers!!!

Sorry to sound lazy .. but
can someone tell me about lens behavior on this camera?
Specifically,
- Is the aperture manually controllable?
- Does the aperture setting drift in sync with zoom action?
- Anyone know if Century is making WA adapters specifically for this lens?

Shimbe, I am VERY close to buying one. How do you like it so far?

Andy - So far i like it a lot. haven't been out there to really push it. we're using it in some specific applications where the size is the best part about it. as well as the direct to .mov

Zeph - the aperture is manually controllable but kind of awkward in how that works. i haven't tested enough to notice the drift question.

It has apperture control through button and tiny wheel on camera back. It works but not very convenient if you want a fast adjustment. I used it to control DoF during July 4th fireworks shooting with good result.

It stays the same. Actually it shows you an aperture value.

I use Nikon WC-E68 lens - it can be mounted instead of hood and it has a good result from wide up to middle zoom. In high zoom it has a significant color distortion.

I like it, I was able to make a good shot after hiking on Lassen Peak (2000ft). Picture is pretty good.

It is so small I am afraid it can be too flimsy and wouldn't last long!

I highly would not recommend this camera. I had it for a week and really really really wanted to like it, but there's too many flaws. I loved the audio controls and the way the mic handle is set up (and able to be so easily removed), but it has major strobing when doing pans, and the OIS is HORRIBLE!

It uses the XDCAM codec which gives a nice sharp crisp picture, but I prefer the more cinematic look that Panasonic delivers. Nonetheless, the strobing and OIS were too craptastic for me to consider keeping the camera.

Also, the fact that you have to flip a switch to use the ring for focus or zoom just plain sucks. The point of the small form factor is to make it easier and more appealing for on the go documentary work enthusiast, but that switching of the ring makes the job so much harder.

I know there are lots of people praising the camera out there. I got very stoked from a bunch of those praises, as well, but I really encourage anyone interested in buying it to actually use it hands on before making the purchase.
