JVC Everio GZ-HM200 Camcorder Review

 

As far as mid-range HD camcorders go, the JVC GZ-HM200 ($579 MSRP) is a solid product. The sister-model to the GZ-HD300, the HM200 includes dual SD/SDHC memory card slots and offers a fairly straightforward shooting experience. The camcorder has some...

There are a ton of HD camcorders on the market that range between $400 and $800. Picking the best out of that bunch is a difficult task, but the GZ-HM200 is definitely a solid prospect. The camcorder offers an excellent value with an MSRP of $579, and...

Some handling issues and cheap construction, but overall, a good mid-range model

Excellent color accuracy; Good low light color and noise

Poor low light sensitivity; Laser Touch is a pain to use

Excellent for the price!!

 

Great camera for the great price, (and I did my homework before I bought it, too!!) I spend at least a week on things before I buy them...so I've done a lot of the leg work for ya... If you buy a tripod, make sure it's got a quick release on it......

Too many pros to list. Super light. The picture quality is awesome, even in low light. I've been using mine since January. I use it for my TV show, and am so impressed. The microphone is ok, and I would love the option for an external mic, but don't ha

Editing software ***********. (oops) LOL Seriously, I bought Corel Studio Pro X 4 and I love it!! Other con is no night vision. They say it's good in dim light, but I don't think it is...but it's ok, because I shoot a lot during the day. But if you

Very small and comfortable camcorder At a great price.

 

This camera has now been superseded by a newer 2010 model, and can be found online for very little money. It does what it should do very well considering how much you can purchase it for. If you want even better quality you will most surely have to...

Small, light and Does what it should do for the price. Can be found online refurbished for a very low price.With two HDHC cards you can record plenty of HD at 1080p 24bps.If bought refurbished,you can have a great cam. with a lot of resolution cheap

This cam. has poor low level light capability, like almost all budget consumer video equipment. The only other problem that I can find, is that the HDHC cards are expensive and must be of good quality
