A friend of mine invited me to an “HD Video and DSLR Meet-Up.”  What’s that right?  Yeah I was asking myself the same question since I didn’t really know what to expect.  It was a bit intimidating when I walked into a room full of dudes, but everyone was pretty cool.  Right now, I use a Panasonic P2 to shoot all my stories, you can see me in action here and  here.  This camera caught my eye, mainly because of the size and weight- it’s about 3lbs and seems easy to travel with.


JVC- GYHM100U -$3,500 and ready to edit in Final Cut Pro.  What do you think? Worth it?


I don’t think I’m ready for this device… it was a bit heavy for me.  I’ll just stick to a tripod for now.

@RobertCBuchanan is the man behind the camera and HDProFilms.   Thanks for the invite!
