Stunning video. Still testing ideal settings

Jason Rosenfeld "Scenic Labs Guy", Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: I recently purchased a used HMQ10U. I've had a chance to take it out for some test shoots, and I'm very impressed by the quality. I own a production company that specializes in scenery and I've used a RED One crew to film scenes as simple as an aquarium tank or yule log. While the frames from the RED seem sharper, the color from the HMQ10U has better color reproduction. I don't usually use FCP X.

Battery Dead two times in a row

Guven KIVILCIM, Amazon
26 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this item from Amazon as a prime item. I was very exited to have a new 4k camera. Item arrived in time as usual with Amazon. But right out of the box the battery was dead. So I order a replacement and send back this item. In another 2 days I received another camera, only to find out that this one also has a dead batter :( . So this time I returned it for good and probably going to get the new Sony FDRAX1 4K instead when it comes out in Nov.

4K60P in a handheld camcorder

XepherZenith, B&H Photo
3 July 2012
  • Excerpt: The good: +The cheapest 4K camcorder one can get compare to other 4K cam. +4K60P with 144Mbps, absolutely amazing details!! The bad: -Low light senstivity, indoor video is not good (grainy) when there is not enough light. -About 1GB per minute when shoots in 4K60P mode, needs lots of storage to put those huge files. -Battery only lasts for one hour and half when shoot in 4K.
  • Pros: Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Poor In Low Light

Image quality not as expected

Dream maker, B&H Photo
23 June 2012
  • Excerpt: 4K = 4x video quality? wrong - 4K video looks worse than a 1080p video taken with a 2 year old panasonic tm700. Washed out color, lack of details and fuzzy edge are characteristic of this camera. With a big sensor, one may expect better low light performance. Guess again, low light performance is much worse than a 10 year old Sony DV camera. Technology not ready for prime time yet. May be in a few years.
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light

  • Excerpt: The camera is a great new tool I will soon have. After playing around with this for a week after a friend lent it to me and once I recieve it I will be filming a B movie sitcom with this bad boy and it's performance in low light and the sharpness of the images are amazing and thats without evenin viewing my footage on a 4k TV. This camera is for definately for the pro's as the automatic settings are really terrible.
  • Pros: Almost cinema quality, Amazing focal lenght, Amazing image, And cinema size, Awsome price, Compact Design, Great audio, Highly Compatible, Lightweight, Professional Quality
  • Cons: The adjustment knob

Great next generation camcorder

David White, B&H Photo
11 April 2012
  • Excerpt: This camcorder is in the prosumer form factor and has some features important to both consumers and professionals. I am a private videographer who makes video for personal use so this review will be from that perspective. The GY-HMQ10's size is somewhere between a modern consumer and modern pro camera. If one wants to use its internal stereo mic, the mic boom/handle attachment can be removed making it even smaller.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Improves Performance, Professional Quality, Very sharp video
  • Cons: Weak viewfinder display

Filmen mit 4K Auflösung!

Patrick B., Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Nach 3D ist nun 4K das neue Schlagwort der Filmbranche. In der digitalen Welt gehört die 4K-Option bereits zur Grundausstattung. Hersteller „JVC“ wagte nun mit dem neuen Henkel-Camcorder GY-HMQ10 die 4K-Auflösung. Diese hochwertige Kamera ist auch für wohlhabende Amateure sehr gut geeignet.
