I've owned a lot of pro camcorders in the last 20 years. I've owned high end pro Sonys, Panasonic, and JVCs. Not one of thosecamcorders were perfect. They all had their problems in one way or another. Well I wanted to get into 4K video without breaking the bank.
SUMMARY The GY-HM170U is a high-end consumer camcorder with many professional features. It can record excellent video in UHD, has a 12X zoom lens, and, through its attached handle, provides inputs and power for XLR microphones. Feature for feature, it is far less expensive than its competitors.
Bought two of these for a documentary and workhorse video work and they were amazing. Reliable, great image quality - fantastic color and audio ports that work great. Wish they came with battery chargers. Sold them to upgrade to the LS-300 when I decided to stop doing two-camera work.
I purchased this camera for a specific project that needed run and gun capabilities...fast and accurate auto focus, image stabilizer, XLR audio in... in short the type of camera I had for many years prior to DSLR / separate audio recording. I am a one-man-band so to speak.
This is my second JVC that I have purchased from B and H. Once again great price, great camera. Easy to use!
This is a very great deal. its not that expensive but it is 4K and works well. For this price you cannot beat this deal. Awesome buy
it's a very nice one and best quality
Great addition to my camera arsenal, small and economic with plenty of features! I Love It!
