GY-HM600 Camcorder with Firmware Update Version 2.0

New Firmare Upgrade Vesion 2.0 for the GY-HM650 Camcorder is now available. In addition to the well-known features, you will experience a whole new set of functionalities. The new features can also be updated easily and free of charge by your customers. Get ready to be stunned by a bunch of new interesting functions and improvements.


New Features:

  • AVCHD mode:
    As of now, your multi-format camcorder supports two additional HD formats
    1440x1080 with 9 Mbps, called LP mode
    1440x1080 with 5 Mbps, called EP mode
    More flexibility and functionality when it comes to recording.
  • Backup recording:
    The above mentioned new format can also be used along with backup recording.
  • SD recording quality:
    A number of improvements to the encoder provides for optimal SD recording quality.
  • Expanded Focus:
    This new feature enables you to zoom in on the image at the touch of a button, so that you can apply the focus in
    a much easier and precise way.
  • Favorites Menu:
    Calling up your favorites list has never been easier and simpler: All it takes, is a long push on the menu button and
    your favorites list´s going to show up right away.
  • Knee Point Settings:
    2.5 % steps ranging from 85% to 100% allow you to widen the scope of fine adjustments when it comes to the knee point settings.
  • White peak:
    The functional scope of the white peak set up has been expanded to 103%.
  • Overexposure warning:
    We also added a new function to the LCD or view finder: Provided you´d like to reduce the light factor, just apply the ND filter, as this setting enables you to add an alert function in the form of a blinking “F” whenever the value exceeds the capacity which is limited to F8. This is particularly important when it comes to your vision, as your iris gets smaller and thus may lead to a “washing out” of the image area.
  • More flexibility thanks to new REC-button assignment:
    Since some of you missed a white balance button next to the front REC-button, we changed the REC-button assignment, thus it´s possible to use the button for both functions, REC and White Balance.
  • GPS information:
    GPS information can be shown as a thumbnail in the display status menu.
  • Clip Trimming:
    You would like to select a particular scene of your recordings? Just switch to the playback mode and crop the file to the desired image or scene. Since the camcorder creates a new cropped file, your original file will remain the same. Sending only the content, you need allows you to benefit from shorter FTP transmission times and save data transfer cost.
  • Camcorder menu is finally available in multi-languages:
    English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian languages are available!
