JVC GY-HM100U: A Little Guy with a Big Punch

In the world of filmmakers and videographers, there is a prolonged myth that bigger is better. The truth is, it all depends on the specific assignment. However, in capturing candid and real-life events, a clunky shoulder-mounted camera often inhibits the ability for even the best camera operator to obtain unobstructed realism. Packed with all the settings and controls an experienced shooter would require, the JVC GY-HM100U is a deceptively small camcorder that provides the operator with a professional level of image control, as well as the freedom of invisibility. This makes it perfectly suited to many videographers and documentarians.

Who Knew? Is Your Camera a Dummy?

Have you ever looked into a surveillance camera and wondered who was watching you? Well, even if you haven't, you should know that the camera mounted to the ceiling may well be a dummy. In fact, we carry loads of dummy surveillance cameras designed to deter would-be intruders by giving the feeling that they are being watched. This is a great item for mom-and-pop stores on a budget, families with concerns about trespassers, schools with concerns about delinquent behavior, and more.

Who Knew is an ongoing weekly series featuring some of the items that you wouldn't typically find in your average camera store. But then again, we're not your typical camera store. 

Benefits of MiniDV

MiniDV camcorders still offer many benefits, not to mention the terrific quality of the video they capture. Sticking with MiniDV is a no-brainer if you already have a lot of time and money invested in the format. B&H still carries the most popular MiniDV models at the best prices you’ll find anywhere.

Kodak Mini Video/Still Camera is Waterproof

If you were ready to buy a pocket video recorder, or had settled on a particular unit but were postponing your purchase, you might want to hold off a while longer until the new Kodak Mini Video Camera becomes available. It’s a slick little camera that should be a lot of fun.


Sony HXR-MC50U Pro AVCHD Camcorder

It’s gratifying to know that manufacturers continue to improve the quality of handheld camcorders. We’ll probably see 4K handheld camcorders on the market in just a few years. The Sony HXR-MC50U Ultra Compact Pro AVCHD Camcorder is a stepping stone toward that goal.


Capture the Action in Full HD

The television-broadcast world is nearing the end of its HDTV revolution. Almost every show on TV is now broadcast in HD. It’s time for consumer video gear to catch up. While most consumer-grade camcorders record in HD, many of the niche-type video recorders, such as those you can wear, are not yet capturing HD. But the Drift HD170 is.


Record HD Video on a Budget

It’s difficult to keep up with technology, and it’s also expensive if you insist on buying the latest gear. While it’s dizzying to keep up with advancements in technology, those same advancements keep making new gadgets more and more affordable. A case in point is this HD camcorder, which costs less than $300.
