Earlier this year when JVC has announced during NAB 2011 their JVC GY-HMZ1 3D ProHD Camcorder the company has stated that it should be available on the market with a price of less than $2500 USD, but now that the 3D camcorder is actually available the price looks even more attractive. The JVC GY-HMZ1U ProHD 3D camcorder has an official list price of $1995 USD, but you can actually purchase it with a price closer to $1700 USD (if you live in the US that is). The new JVC GY-HMZ1 3D ProHD camcorder is actually based on the not long ago announced consumer 3D camcorder – JVC GS-TD1, with pretty much the only difference being the fact that the HMZ1 version has support for 24p 3D recording mode as well as dual XLR microphone inputs. JVC has also announced that the consumer GS-TD1 model will be getting a software update by the end of the year, so it may also get 24p 3D mode available at that time. But since the new JVC GY-HMZ1 3D ProHD camcorder is not much more expensive you may also get that feature even now to make your life easier when editing and exporting the 3D video recorded with the camcorder. The only problem with the JVC GY-HMZ1 3D ProHD camcorder is the fact that since it is considered a professional product it may take more time to appear on some smaller markets or not become available at all, even if the consumer JVC GS-TD1 model is present there.
