JVC DY-90WUCL D-9 Cineline Camcorder

For the past few years, JVC engineers have been working closely with leading film directors and cinematographers to develop the ultimate digital camera for use by independent filmmakers. The astonishing results of this initiative are now being unveiled to the film community in our "CineLine" digital camera products and accessories. These models go far beyond simulating a "film look." They are specially designed to optimize the digital transfer to film, resulting in incredible quality final prints unmatched by any other digital source.

The DY-90WUCL is JVC's top performing CineLine camcorder, and uses our renowned D-9 1/2-inch 4:2:2 recording format. Though physically similar to its non-Cineline counterpart, the DY-90UW, this new camcorder produces significantly different output, and therefore shouldn't be expected to match in a multi-camera environment with non-Cineline models. Accessories are interchangeable with the non-Cineline versions.

For filmmaking, including episodic television production, this camera is nothing short of spectacular!
