What an awesome camera

We looked at the canon lens but decided the extra zoom outweighed the extra little bit of light, we often use it under artificial light and works a treat, I strongly suggest moving away from the factory settings and setting it up for your personal needs. If you’re a serious videographer this camera has be a serious consideration.at this price you’d be silly not to make this purchase, only down side is order a separate battery and power supply, we intending a couple more of these in the near future.

Thanks to Globalmediapro Limited for the supply of this awesome camera the JVC GY-HM700 HD Camcorder Kit with Fujinon 17x5 Lens, the one problem which out of Globalmediapro Limited control was it arrived with no power supply or battery, so make sure you add these into your order. We opted for Fujinon 17x5 Lens option because we already run Fujinon lens on our other JVC cameras, I had spoken to couple others about the canon lens and were told they can be a little noisy under low light. We are happy with our acquisition the price was excellent. Thanks again.
