  • Black and white viewfinder display mode
  • Simultaneous use of both eyepiece viewfinder and tri-mode LCD display when powered by Anton Bauer or IDX battery system
  • Selectable mirror mode on vertically flipped LCD display
  • Adjustable setting of FOCUS ASSIST function
  • Choice of three image formats on composite out (letterbox, squeeze, side cut)

  • 13 segment audio level indicator
  • Manual audio control within FAS (Full Auto Shooting) mode
  • Audio limiter available in manual mode
  • Parallel power off management of DR-HD100 hard disk recorder
The camera is scheduled to be available in “mid July,” so expect to see it soon. The list price is $6295, the same as the HD100U at introduction. More info: http://pro.jvc.com
