The GY-HC550 is a professional handheld camcorder that supports live streaming on location and in the studio. The network communication function allows immediate broadcast in HD format. GY-HC550 accommodates various recording formats as well as network communication. The ergonomic placement of each function facilitates easy operation and reduces the likelihood of error. Exhaustive verification tests were performed to hone the key design details such as size, form, weight, balance, and grip. The end result is a camera tailor-made for the consummate professional.
