JY-HM360 was created to capture life's precious events with the quality they deserve. Its light and ergonomic form offers excellent maneuverability, yet it’s packed with versatile features to help you concentrate on the client’s special day.
High-performance CMOS Sensor Combined with F1.2 Lens for High-sensitivity Shooting
At the heart of the JY-HM360 is a 1/2.3-inch 18.9 M pixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor, which offers high resolution recordings. When combined with JVC’s Dynamic 19x F1.2 Bright GT Lens, brilliant results with excellent sensitivity and less noise can be achieved even in low light environments. This way you can record events, social functions, or weddings without the need for additional lighting.
Supports an Array of Popular Codecs and File Formats
Featuring JVC’s original high-speed picture processing FALCONBRID™ engine, the camera is capable of supporting major file formats such as .MOV with Apple Final Cut ProTM, .MP4 of XDCAM EX™ cameras, and .MTS for AVCHD compatibility, as well as high-definition images in MPEG-2 35Mbps and AVCHD 28Mbps (Progressive) format. Furthermore, the processor also supports H.264 video format in 50Mbps extreme high quality (XHQ) mode for virtually no block noise and to capture high-speed moving subjects.
Professional Layout, Stylish Design and User-friendly Operations
As a handheld camcorder, the JY-HM360 is ergonomically designed to satisfy discerning videographers. For instance, 3 Rec Trigger button is convenient for any shooting scenes while Zoom Seesaw lever enables smooth zooming from very slow to high speed. The camera also features essential switches and buttons for shooting including white balance, iris, gain, and focus, which are located mainly on the left side panel, enabling intuitive controls to quickly change settings even while shooting. Up to 11 functions can be customized that are assigned to seven user buttons on the camera body and four on the LCD’s cross-shaped buttons.
For higher level of shooting, image parameters such as gamma and color-matrix as well as other detail settings can be customized and stored in both the camera’s internal memory and SDHC/SDXC card.
Optimum Shooting Mode with Flick of a Switch using Scene Select
As a wedding cameraman, you might use spot lighting to create more dramatic scenes. However, a sudden change in lighting requires quick adjustment of shooting modes. In such instances, the Scene Select function comes in handy as it enables selection of the optimum shooting mode with the flick of a switch. Position A and B in Scene Select can be assigned to specific scenes such as Indoor and Outdoor, both Indoors, or both Outdoors, each of which are assigned with five shooting modes. Using the menu displayed on the LCD and viewfinder. These modes can be set with values. Once set, you simply flick between A and B to achieve the optimum lighting for a scene.
