gy250u studio vs. hpx500 studio
on Jan 16, 2008 at 9:03:29 pm

In construciton of a new studio, I've been debating between the JVC and Panasonic setups. I'm leaning heavily toward the Panasonic, mainly for the 2/3" chips that will yeild the DOF suitable for an interview set that will be used in studio.

With the cost being so close between the two, why would people go for the 1/3" look?

Has anyone lined these cameras up side by side... ??

JVC has a nice package for the studio, and I know that several news stations have made the jump to these cameras... does anyone know of anyone using the HPX500 in a studio environment?

Thanks for your input and opinions.

Hey Jimmy,
Well 1/3 isn't going to 'smoke' any 2/3.
I think it comes down to what you have to spend.
Are connecting to a switcher and going straight to broadcast or just shooting?
HDSDI out is great!!
You can get a JVC HD250 for under $6K.
What a tough choice...

Jerry,

I don't know. I've never seen one for less that $9k without the lens. You can get a 110 for around there or less I believe.

By the way it will be a studio setup for broadcast. We'll capture straight to a fcp station in the studio, then transfer to the edit bay for finishing.
