The JVC GY-HM790U is a high definition professional camera built to serve a dual role both as a compact shoulder mount and a studio camera. It shares the same features as the JVC GY-HM700U, but also includes a sled studio housing and large lens support. The viewfinder has also been expanded to a full 8.4 inch studio version, and a number of studio modules have been built in including a fiber remote module. Built-in Genlock is also available. Apart from these things, most of the other functions are the same, including native MP4 and MOV recording with newly expanded support for AVI files. Storage is handled through hot swappable SDHC memory cards, and high definition standards can be set to as high as 1080p or full 1080i60. Several time coding options are built in, and audio is recorded in 2 channels with manual level controls. XLR microphones can be used, and the unit will supply phantom power.
