    JVC GY-HM620 reviews

    GY-HM620 ProHD Mobile News Camera is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best camera for the money. Period. Find my review for the JVC GY-HM600. Everything I said is the same, only better. This is my personal camera for everything I shoot and I only share it with my students when we have to have 6 cameras at once. I'm a big fan of JVC cameras. We've bought 14 in the past 7 years for our studio, news shooting and sports and concert multi camera shoots. They work and have managed to survive 7 years of student used/abuse. That says a lot. Best camera for the money. Period.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Camera - Little Restrictive on the Formats This is a solid camera all around. Weighted very nicely for both sticks and run n' gun. Cinema mode produces a very nice picture with rich saturation without overdoing it. My needs run from quick, grind it outs to this is going to the 'c-suite', make it look like a movie, so that is nice. Don't expect a 5D-Mark III finish, but you get a lot more versatility with pro connections, manual switches and toggles, and features. Only 2 major cons: You can only shoot 24p in MPEG-2 or MP4 formats. I prefer that look and space-saving files. 2nd Focus Assist appears in the Viewfinder in B/W. Takes getting used to. I like Panasonics because the FA is in color. One major plus is that there is a one toggle all-auto mode. So if I need to hand the camera off to a non-pro, at least I know I can get usable footage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for the money Using this camera for live production worship shots at church. Great picture quality and simple user functions make it a great camera for volunteers to learn to operate quickly and efficiently.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay camera I bought the camera for church live streaming. I needed a second camera that would perform just as good or better than the Canon XF305. I had a horrible experience with the 4k Panasonic AG-UX180 so I returned it and bought this one. All the cameras work great in sunlight, but when it comes to indoor where you have difficult lighting conditions, the color reproduction and optical lens set the camera apart. This camera did well under low light. When it comes to zooming really far, the image no longer is sharp. It did much better than the Panasonic but not as good as the Canon. Canon has bigger lens than the JVC. Panasonic has the smallest. You will have to play around with the color adjustment because it does not reproduce exact color automatically like the Canon or Sony.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay camera 2 In addition to my previous post, I've discovered that when you zoomed in all the way on JVC 23x vs. Canon 18x, they both were about the same because the Canon lens is bigger. Both cameras did well because when you zoom really far, your aperture gets smaller. Canon is at 2.8 and JVC is at 3.0. Manufacture will try to save money by making smaller lens in the new 4K cameras. The problem with that is like trying to get a lot of water running through a smaller pipe at a faster speed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Purchased the next model higher earlier and figured I would try this one since it's has pretty much everything as the more expensive model except steaming module in it. Love the way it looks on IMAG and recording quality.
    Date published: 2017-05-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 15 sec buffer is tops one needs to download the full manual, the one supplied, dosn't cover it all. Even in the full manual, many usages are not fully explained/covered. The manual also includes instructions for the 660 camera and sometimes it is not clear if instructions are for 620 or not.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera!! Just recieved my new JVC� GY-Hm620 and went out to test it at a club. I was amazed how well it adjusted to the light. The unit was able to record and see everyone without and back light or turning up any outside source. It was easy to work and took no time to learn the basic recording techniques.� The instructions were easy to read and understand. Very impressed with the quality of the video so far.
