    Building on the HD100, JVC is launching the HD200 and the HD251.

    They have a similar form factor to the HD100 but offer much more on the inside. Including the all familer pro connectors: SDI, Genlock and Timecode. They also support upgrades to full Studio capabilty.

    About the HD250 from JVC.com:
    • 60p capture and recording provide high resolution and smooth motion for news and sports
    • Compact Shoulder Professional form factor
    • Choice of several lenses
    • Built-in 14.4V type Battery Mount
    • External time code sync
    • HD-SDI output w/embedded audio
    • Dual-media (tape +HDD)recording with DTE.

    Lots of people will care about it being 720p -- does that make it a joke? Not at all.

    The real head-scratcher is a $9,000 HD250 that doesn't even include a lens, vs. a $7,000 Canon XH G1. Both offer 3x1/3" CCDs, both offer uncompressed HD-SDI with embedded audio, but one is $2,000 less and includes a (noninterchangeable) lens, the other has no lens and offers lens choices of a 16x POS or a $11,000 good lens.

    Vs. $7,000 for the complete Canon package.

    So I do think your "who cares" comment will probably prove correct, but not because it's 720p, rather because it's really high-priced compared to the Canon alternative.

    Barry, I think this is a very unfair comparison. The two cameras are much more different than the few points you make above. The HD250 can capture at 60P, while the G1 does 60i. The HD250 is a shoulder mount, ENG form factor; the G1 is not. The HD250 has a professional 14.4V battery mount that can also power an onboard light and/or wireless mics; the G1 can not. The HD250 can be controlled by a professional CCU, the G1 can not (as far as I know). The HD250 can use optional premium ENG HD lenses with digital servos (from Fujinon) and real studio quality rear lens controls for both zoom and focus. The G1 can not.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the Canon cameras, but the HD250 can fill a niche of its own. To discount it based on a few selective points is unfair IMO.

    Yes, you're right, it does have a few points in its favor. Comparison was unfair I guess. It's just what I thought of as soon as I heard the XHG1 was out: "well, there goes the HD250". But perhaps those differences will give it some room in the market.

    Though the DVX is a good camera, I think we all have to admit that the GY-HD JVS cams are the sexiest looking.
