I've been using the JVC HD110 for awhile and love it. my latest ambition is to shoot some rising smoke but have the camera vertical to take advantage of hdv 16:9, like pictured below:

but now i found this in the manual (pg. 6):

"Use the unit in an upright position.
If placed on its side, heat release efficiency will deteriorate,
adversely affecting the tape transport. Depending on cir-
cumstances the tape may also be damaged"

so... what's a good way of doing this? it will be indoors but perhaps keep a fan blowing on it? ice pack? should it face "tape side" or "lcd side" up? anyone try this before with success?

Hi

I am an owner of a jvc hd 111,at my last project a feature film i had the camera vertical on awall for a scene at the side of the lcd
about two hours nothing happened.

a lot of times i put this camera vertica or upside down and nothig happened at all.even on the top of a car upside down.

BTW i thing that is a rule in this forum to use your real name or correct name.

How did you guys end up mounting the camera vertically? I have a project requiring it. I currently use the Libec LS-55 tripod but the ball doesn't tilt far enough. What are you all using?

Thanks!

For normal shooting in normal temperatures, you should have no problems with the camera vertical for a while.
