JVC Everio GZ-HD620 Camcorder Review

 

The GZ-HD620 is a mid-range HD camcorder from JVC that records to an internal 120GB hard drive as well as offering a MicroSD card slot. The camcorder is low on frills, captures high-quality video, and has a reasonable price tag of $649.

JVC GZ-HD620

 

A midrange model, with a big hard drive, high quality video, few frills, and a reasonable price

Very strong color and noise performance; Also strong on motion and sharpness

Using the Laser Touch strip is a pain; Almost no manual controls

The JVC GZ-HD620 is a solid mid-range HD camcorder that is fairly-priced with its $649 MSRP. The camcorder is low on manual controls, and its construction feels somewhat cheap, but it did well in our performance testing in both low and bright light.

Review: JVC Everio GZ-HD620 camcorder

 

Note: This article was updated to clarify some details. Just to be clear the HD620 does not record at 1080p. It is a 1080i camcorder that upconverts its output to 1080/60p. The company's literature is confusing and it often throws around ambiguous...

Great Hard Drive Camcorder

 

It's a great buy for the money and durable! You can go wrong by buying this product!

I bought my camcorder through AAFES and it cost me $499 with no taxes! For the money, this camcorder produced excellent HD quality recording and with a 120 gig built-in hard drive makes this an excellent buy

I was used to a view-finder with my older JVC Everio, but I think it's a minor sacrifice. I wished it could have came with a mini-hdmi cable, but no problem there either

I would buy JVC product again

Great little camera

 

Still new to the camera, but seems to be a great unit. Not sure the picture quality is what I would call excellent on large screen HDTV, but good enough. For the price, I\'m not sure you can do better that this one.

Picture quality is amazing in comparison to standard definition cameras ; Easy to transfer movie files direct to my PC and then burn to DVD

Grainy picture in low light ; Picture a little shuddering with moving objects
