Forager Films' cameraman selects JVC GY-HD101E camcorder

JVC GY-HD101E camcorder is been used by lighting and broadcast cameraman Tom Paterson of Forager Films Limited, to shoot programme footage for the ‘Used Car Roadshow’.
Produced by Daisybeck Productions, based in Leeds, the ‘Used Car Roadshow’ has been travelling all over the UK meeting buyers and sellers, offering tips and advice. The show is broadcast on the Men and Motors channel and is scheduled to continue right up until Christmas. It has been running since June 2005 and is broadcast every Monday at 8pm and then repeated on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 1pm.
Paterson has 16 years of cameraman experience in primetime broadcast television and has worked on BBC’s “Ground Force” series. He explains how the JVC camera is being used. “Footage is shot using three cameras including the JVC GY-HD101E camera. With each show's links needing to be shot in one 12-hour period at a major car event around the country, it is crucial to be able to inter-cut between the three cameras.”
“The GY-HD101E came into its own with its easy hand-held operation. Working in the confined space of car interiors is made easy by the GY-HD101E's reduced size and simple additions like the lockable recording button on the handgrip and the flip-out LCD screen,” Paterson continued.
The 1/3-inch 3-CCD GY-HD101E camcorder from JVC has HDVTM and DV in & out, and is supplied as standard with a detachable 1/3-inch bayonet mount 16x Fujinon lens. This allows the cameraman to work with a wide variety of professional lenses. The convenient menu operation makes it easy to set time code at the beginning of a tape. The camera is lightweight enabling it to be easily either shoulder mounted or hand held.
