Hey there.

Does anybody know what SMOOTH MOTION for film-look on the JVC cam is? I get an eerie feeling like it's as crappy as Sony's CineFrame look...But it can't be, as I know the JVC captures progressive scan.

I've read this in an article, and since the cam isn't out in Norway yet maybe some of you knew about it.

Is it out in the U.S. yet?

What's smooth about a film-look? Film shot at 24 fps is choppy & strobey compared to normal interlaced-scan video. A film-look is the opposite of smooth!

Hi David: You may already know this, but supposedly there will be a anti-judder feature on the JVC HD100. According to Steve Mullen (no relation?), JVC told him this feature can be turned on or off.

He discussed it in a thread on CreativeCOW awhile back:

Haven't gotten anything in the mail from JVC in about 5 years.
Then today Bammm!! they sent the brochure for the HD 100.They have a
"actual size" pull out poster for it! Wow it's sooooo nice it makes you want to
grab for your checkbook!!
I also read more info on the actual conversion to interlaced video.
I still have questions on that one.
Will the camera do it or only the BR-HD50 player/recorder that they also added
to the brochure perform this task?

In the specs it said it did record in 60i.

Still waiting for more info and actual viewing of some material.
