  • 1Description

The JVC GY-HM180 Ultra HD 4K Camcorder with HD-SDI packs multiple pro features into its compact form, with updates including a 3G-SDI output in addition to an HDMI out. Its single 1/2.3" 12.4MP CMOS sensor captures UHD 4K images in 24 or 30p, at bit rates of 150 or 70 Mb/s, Full HD up to 60p/50 Mb/s, and HD up to 120 fps for smooth slow motion. The 3G-SDI and HDMI outputs can be used to feed and trigger an external recorder.

Lower-res proxy files may be recorded simultaneously with full-size HD files, providing smaller files suitable for posting to the web or editing on the go.

    JVC GY-HM180 reviews

    GY-HM180 Ultra HD 4K Camcorder with HD-SDI is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value It is a very good value. The LCD is the same quality as the 170 that I have as well. I use an external SDI monitor so I can get around the low quality LCD. I shoot many depositions and recently bought the Sony PXW-Z90V thinking the time date stamp would work with the lower MBPS resolutions and it doesn't, so I got rid of it. I shot with the 90v for 2 months and I couldn't deal with the AVCHD file splitting at 2 gigs. It added extra post work that I didn't need. I just got the 180 last week and shot 5 depositions at 960 X 540 with time and date with small files sizes and it works really great. Low light isn't as good as the 90V but in most situations it works perfect. I always bring a light kit that I almost never use. I will say the headphone jack is good but not perfect. I like it loud and it just doesn't get that loud but better than the 90V. I like the audio limiter settings the camera has as well. I usually monitor of my Sound Devices mixer paying attention to the VU on the LCD on the camera. The LCD also seems a little flimsy but not as bad as the Sony 90V did. I don't see this camera as a run and gun camera. It works amazing in a controlled environment and not in full automatic mode. I see getting many years of use out of this camera I just wish the LCD resolution was better than just plain bad.
