I have to admit, I have been a 4K sceptic until now. HD is well and truly suitable for the client work I produce. I’ve wondered if 4K is worth the hassle. Having used the GY-HM200 I now see where 4K fits in. My channels of distribution will remain HD – however, to shoot 4K and be able to zoom in on the image is something that will revolutionise the abilities of the single camera operator who also edits. The ability to reframe shots matters. What also matters is that the 4K with the GY-HM200 is effectively 4K made easy. The camera records the 4K images at 150mbps and when bringing this into Final Cut Pro X for editing, the workflow is seamless. No hiccups or difficulties, simply shoot 4K, import this is into your editing system and get to work right away. I mention Final Cut Pro X, as this is the system I use. I havent tested footage from the GY-HM200 with any other editing systems.
