Review: JVC Everio GZ-HM300 camcorder

 

If you have to shoot a lot of video, and quality matters, you really can't beat a camcorder. Today's point-and-shoot cameras take good enough video and some DSLRs can take great video, but a camcorder is still the best way to get high quality, maximum...

JVC Everio GZ-HM300 HD Camcorder

 

The JVC Everio GZ-HM300 HD Camcorder is extremely lightweight, and has very high optical zoom (20x) and digital zoom (200x), which makes it easy to zoom in on most anything. Video recording procedures were relatively easy, however consumer testers were...

Works Great

 

It's a phenomenal deal for what it is. You can't find this camcorder for less anywhere else. It has the benefits of a traditional camcorder, 20x optical zoom, anti-shake (albeit digital) and records in AVCHD which seems to be the most popular standard...

Great outdoor videos. Compact Size. Full featured camcorder for the price of a pocket cam. 20x optical Zoom. Uses SD cards

Grainy indoor (low light) videos. Battery life is limited to 60 - 90min max. There are no third party decoded versions of the battery and the OEM batteries are pricey

Nice little unit for cheap

 

Dual SDHC slots. Fairly intuitive, I haven't opened the manual yet but I have upped the resolution, shot some video, downloaded it to Nero 10, edited and exported as mpeg video ; Fits in the palm of your hand

Auto focus is not the fastest but it works ; I think it is really 1080i video....not 1080p but for what I paid I don't care

Great low cost Camcorder

 

I have tested and own this camcorder. It has broadcast quality video in outdoor shooting using the best HD mode, uxp and xvC settings. The sound is also very good. With two 32gb cards you get 5 and a half hours at the best HD setting. It beats JVC's...
