Hi; I am in the process of researching the purchase of a GY-HM100U and as part of that research i downloaded some footage from the JVC Canada website. I love how the camera seems to handle colors and sharpness but any motion at all seems to be a blur. If you look at the front leg of the moose photo here you will see that during even a slow walk the leg is almost a total blur. I would assume that they would only use the best footage possible to sell their cameras so does anyone have an idea what the problem is?

I have a hm100u. Very nice camera for the size.

It will depend on frame rate and shutter speed.


I have found that the camera performs better at 720p modes.
I shoot 720 60p. I use a shutter of 1/100 or 1/250 and I get sharp movement.

You can't judge a camera's performance properly by footage downloaded from the web. It will be highly compressed and interframes introduced, this will particularly effect the way motion is played back.

I have a friend that uses this camera for corporate work. The results were so good one of his clients had a broadcast tvc made from material he shot.

Would you buy a car based on seeing one commercial on TV?

No but I might NOT buy a car if that commercial showed a problem

Are you planning to shoot moose outdoors?

I've been shooting for over a month with the camera, and haven't noticed any blurring or motion issues. Outside, you'll probably be above a 1/60th shutter because of 1 ND filter setting and everything will be sharp. Indoors, you can get by with a 1/30 shutter. I rate the camera at 100 ASA (pretty low). Depends on what you want to shoot with it.

Here's a real world sample:

there's plenty more out there. Philip Bloom does a nice review of the camera. I would stick to 720 30p or 60p, with detail set to OFF.

The zoom and controls leave a lot to be desired, but it has very good quality for shooting for the web. I did a two camera shoot with a HVX200, both at 9db gain, and I think the HM100 looks better - despite the better DVCPRO HD100 codec of the Panasonic.

A very nice sample. Thanks.

I just got a 100 and shot some outdoor test footage in a variety of lighting conditions. The results are fine (no blurring).

What brand and size SDHC cards are you using?

Where is the Philip Bloom review?

I use 16gb Transcend class 6 cards with no problems, and PNY class 10. The Transcend cards are $26 at B&H! That's cheaper then Betacam Tapes back in the '90's (1 hr @ card = 2 tapes @ $30). At that price you could keep shot footage on the cards and not re-use them.

Better to use 1 hour or less (16gb) cards for ease and speed of downloading and cataloging footage - but that's a workflow issue.

Bloom's review is here: http://philipbloom.net/2009/04/17/review-of-jvc-gy-hm-100/

Happy shooting!
