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 those camcorders were perfect. They all had their problems in one way or another. Well I wanted to get into 4K video without breaking the bank.

Very poor performance in Low Light. Works fine in a sun day with shots outside and or good Lighting conditions, otherwise you will have a Lot of Noise. I have made much better videos with my 3/4 sensor Canon Camcorder (D70) in HD than this 4K Camcorder in Indoor environment.

I have used this camera to record outdoors and indoors with low light. Although I have not used it enough to master the camera, I have used it enough and toyed with the setting enough to realize that the camera is only as good as the human using the camera. Isn't that all cameras?

For the price its a OK camera. Absolutely nothing impressive about this unit. Very poor viewfinder, its hard to find focus.

The JVC GY-HM170 is an outstanding professional camera, yet cheaper than many of the prosumer 4K camcorders so common these days. I own the JVC GY-HM170E, albeit from a supplier elsewhere. Tip: You definitely want to get this excellent pro camera together with the grip and mic inputs.

Excellent cameras, I have 3 just be careful in low light! Quality degrades so be prepared to light situations, outdoor quality is excellent, indoor is very good with decent light. Low light is not an option!

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.
