JVC Unveils New ProHD Camcorder

By Beacon Staff

JVC has debuted its new tapeless ProHD camcorder that might just be what the video doctor ordered. I have accomplished a limited amount of video editing in my time and have done less with prosumer video gear, but even I’m excited about this camera. Mainly my excitement derives from the fact that the camera shoots in native Final Cut Pro’s QuickTime file format, which can really cut down on editing time and, for those like myself, can help eliminate some aggravations. Not to mention size matters when you’re carrying tons of gear, so the light weight (3 pounds) and compact size are enticing. But instead of taking my word for it, read a short and comprehensive review (here) by The Spokesman-Review’s multimedia producer Colin Mulvany (again here). He’s much more experienced in this realm than I am.
