    Comments about Panasonic AG-HCK10 POVCAM HD Camera Head Kit:

    I bought the HCK10 camera kit with the HMR10 recorder for a very diverse range of uses. The quality of the images is great. It's basically got the same guts as the AG HMC40 camera so you can expect similar results, but in a smaller package.
    The HMR10 recorder controls all the camera functions from zoom, focus, iris, wave form monitor, zebras, white balance - everything you can do with a regular camera you can control with this yet, do it at 10 or 65 feet away.

    I use this camera for:
    1. remote pole camera moving jib-like shots
    2. on a tripod during multi-camera events
    3. mounted on vehicles
    4. on a jib because it's much lighter than a regular camera
    5. on a tall stand with a remote head to manage full Pan/tilt control just as if a camera operator was there but the operator is sitting stealthily 65 feet awway.
    6. as a hidden camera during weddings where a regular video camera can't be

    The recorder can also be used by itself like if you have a P2 camera and need the long inexpensive recording times of AVCHD connected via SDI.

    I could go on and on, but to sum it up it's a pro camera with virtually all the pro features in a very small package. It works well in full auto so you can just shoot without having to worry about manual settings.
    The only things I would improve on this camera are:
    1. I wish it had a connection for HDMI in
    2. I wish it had a wider angle lens. POV cameras typically need wide lenses in order to get the types of shots they are used for. It's usuable, but needs to be wider.
    3. I wish it was better in low light. Like the HMC40, it punches like a heavyweight so long as the light is good, but struggles in dim indoor settings.

    A couple notes that I found out later. In order to mount the recorder to a standard 1/4-20 tripod mount (tripod, vest, etc..), you will need to buy the optional "stand" which is basically a metal piece that screws onto the sides and gives it a 1/4-20 hole on the bottom. Also, it's hard to see the LCD screen on the HMR10 recorder in bright sunlight so plan on buying the expensive LCD hood also. Once you add all those then the system no longer fits very well in the little Panasonic YUSC10 bag.

    Supposedly this camera was used in the 2010 Cadillac commercial for interior shots.
