    Here's the press release from their website:

    http://pro.jvc.com/pro/pr/2012/nab/index.html

    And the 2 new ENG cameras. They look like scaled down versions of their shoulder mounts, but now have 1/3" CMOS full raster 1920x1080 chips (finally!):

    The low price shoulder mount cameras from JVC were their best attribute. They were/are great just because of theirs form factor. This new cameras are, well...they are nothing special.

    The HM650 can send video back to the news station wirelessly. No live truck needed. I'd say that's a very big innovation.

    I noticed the light sensitivity is F11 @ 2000 Lux. Very impressive for a 1/3" camera. (if it is clean)

    It competes very well with the AC160 & EX1r, I think that is something special. 1920x1080 CMOS is more than their shoulder cameras have done, I think all those chips are 1280x720 CCD.

    23x zoom, which beats the record of 22x on the AC130/160 & HPX250.

    Plus mpeg2 & AVCHD!!! Any other camera doing that?
    Where are all the S-VHS hipsters?

    Looks like they're missing 1080p60 and VFR. Even so, I'm keen to see what the picture quality is like, especially if the Fujinon lens better than the lens on the AC130/160.

    VFR is the biggest thing I'm wondering about. I'm guessing if it was included it'd be mentioned, along with 1080p60.

    But the more I look at it, the more I like it.

    TC in / out ~ don't know if this is through the AV jack, or what, but nice.
    3 record triggers, side hand grip, top handle & one in the front like a ENG camera. NICE! Although I wish the white balance button was a toggle in the front too, but can't ask for everything in this form factor.

    Also looking at the photos, it seems like you can reset the TC w/o going into the menu.

    It seems to be quite workflow friendly. Encodes MP4, MOV, AVCHD and MXF. That's all editing applications covered! Also records to non-proprietary SD cards. Looks to be a solid event, news-gathering camera. Panasonic is facing quite a competition from Sony's FS100 event/doco/film-making package and on the other end, broadcasting from JVC.

    Are people really getting into the large-sensor world (FS100, AF100 etc.) much for event shooting? I would have thought deep-focus ENG type cameras and lenses would still be the better option by far for that sort of work (with the exclusion of the odd beauty shot here and there).
