Stunning video. Still testing ideal settings

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.
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light

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.
