JVC Everio GZ-HD10


video at full HD. It records at 1,440 by 1,080 interlaced with a 4:3 aspect ratio at 60 fps. Like an upscaling DVD player, which can make standard DVDs look more like Blu-ray but can't quite make them comparable to the real thing, the GZ-HD10 outputs...

Comfortable and lightweight. Records to a 40GB built-in hard drive. Includes full PC software suite for video editing and burning Blu-ray discs. Features HDMI-out

Does not record at full 1080p HD resolution. Video is prone to purple fringing

Despite some flaws, JVC's Everio GZ-HD10 is a decent starter camcorder choice if you're not hung up on capturing the highest-resolution video possible. What's more, it comes bundled with video-editing and Blu-ray-burning software.

Jvc Everio Gz-hd10


The JVC Everio GZ-HD10 is the lower model of the trio of camcorders that JVC released together, the GZ-HD40, the GZ-HD30, and the GZ-HD10. The GZ-HD10 comes equipped with a 200x digital zoom, and a 40GB HDD.

The reviews that were found commented on the smaller size of the hard drive and the inability to record a lot of video on this camera. They thought the camera performed well and they really enjoyed having an HDMI input on the camera

Great HD camera at a great price


Even though this unit is refurbished you would be hard pressed to tell, it practically looks brand new. I basically wanted a good day time video hd camera at a good price . if you want video samples there are great ones on you tube. A comparable unit...

excellent daylight video,small light weight, avchd format, CMOS sensor, 51/2 hours of high definition best quality recording time. great price

battery only lasts for 1 hour(but you can get one after market which will last 3 hours), average low light recording quality, only 10 x zoom. poor editing software

JVC GZ-HD10us Camcorder


You basically have to use the packaged editing program to edit your footage unless you use a (HD capable) capture card/device (I have this), use a .MTS file converter program (I've tried this) or export unedited footage from packaged program then edit...

Like the Previous review poster, this is my first time buying a re-certified item ; (online) and I thought that if there was anyplace to trust with a purchase like this, it ; was Newegg! I'm happy with this purchase, nice size, great video/picture...

Doesn't automatically make .AVI or MPEG-4 video files, uses .MTS files (?) No night vision

More than expected


I find it a bit difficult importing into AE or other video editor.Camera does come with a basic video editor.I managed to back-up (copy) videos on to my 1TB HDD but I couldn't write a DVD directly using the camera.

It was my first time buying a re-certified item.I'm glad I did ; Great for a family camcorder.If you want a professional one look somewhere else.Auto-gain, focus, work great and colors are great.If you use it in good light environment, you'll be...

Not full HD as other mentioned
