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?
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.
Unfortunately, we have had problems with this camera from day one. At first we thought it might be user error, but after extensive testing it appears to have some major focus issues. it does not hold focus and auto focus does not work so about 75% of our shots are not crisp.
I have been using this camera for a couple of years in a part-time ENG capacity. Business has not been good enough to purchase a new camera, otherwise I would have replaced the GY-HM170UAlong ago. I have been limping along with it, and its problems have cost me several good shots.First, the good.
Great value for the price. Using it as a third camera for cut away shots at weddings. My only complaint is the menu/arrow button is a little difficult. With a little practice, its really not too bad, though.
If you're don't need an SDI interface or network capabilities, the JVC GY-HM170UA is a little powerhouse with great capabilities. The controls are easy to use, the viewfinders are very good and it's nice to have XLR inputs, although you can simply plug in the top-mounted microphone or use the...
Our agency purchased 2 JVC GY-HM170U camcorders. After shooting quite a bit with these cameras, they are just really poorly made. They have back focus issues which no fixed lens camera should. The image quality is awful and they perform poorly in low light.
This camera is very compact and easy to use.
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.
