It is a very high quality professional widescreen camera. If you don't need the 16:9 facility, then get the GY DV500 it's a lot cheaper. It beats all the domestic "Prosumer" DV stuff into a cocked hat.

We shot a feature "The Good Fight" with the JVC DV-GY700 broadcast camera. This is the same camera called the CINELINE, although we got ours from England when it was first being used by the BBC.

This camera shoots in native 16:9 format, in PAL. With 2/3" chips, it has excellent shadow details. Beautiful sharp images. We shot with the idea of blow up to film, although we haven't done this yet.
