JVC Everio X GZ-X900 Review

 

JVC has added some strange features (high-speed recording) while cutting far more useful scene modes for video.

JVC Everio X GZ-X900

 

JVC's Everio X GZ-X900 high-definition camcorder ($1000 as of September 25, 2009) has a sleek design, includes a few innovative features, and generates acceptable HD video under bright lighting conditions. Unfortunately, the unit's noticeably subpar...

Clever YouTube Upload feature ; Good performance in bright light

Terrible video in common low-light settings ; Only 1080/60i capture

The GZ-X900's substandard low-light performance outweighs the camcorder's clever features and slick appearance.

JVC Everio GZ-X900 Camcorder Review

 

The GZ-X900 ($999 MSRP) is the newest top-of-the-line HD camcorder from JVC, and it's a model that is unique in both design and capability. The camcorder has a streamline, rectangular construction that does away with the traditional right-side hand...

The JVC GZ-X900 ($999 MSRP) seems like the tale of two camcorders. It was truly excellent in much of our bright light testing-specifically motion and sharpness-but once the lights went down the camcorder produced atrocious video. Its image was dark,...

JVC Everio GZ-X900 First Impressions Camcorder Review

Expert review by : Jeremy Stamas (washingtonpost.com)

JVC GZ-X900

 

The JVC GZ-X900 came to us with an exciting premise-a uniquely designed, Full HD camcorder that can double as a 9-megapixel still camera. While most camcorders are capable of taking still photos, few boast the massive amount of still features and...

The drawbacks of the GZ-X900 clearly outweigh its positive assets. The camcorder is loaded with a puny 5x optical zoom, which is far smaller than what you'd find on an average HD camcorder (usually between 10x - 15x). It also has a unique design that...

Lots of controls; Excellent sharpness and motion

Terrible low light performance; Unimpressive zoom

JVC Everio GZ-X900 HD camcorder

 

The Everio GZ-X900's substandard low-light performance undercuts the camcorder's clever features and slick appearance

Attractive design, innovative user interface, handy YouTube upload tool

Sub par video performance; especially indoors, poor battery life, too expensive

The JVC Everio GZ-X900 is a decent high-definition camcorder let down by its poor low-light performance. There are plenty of better (and cheaper) options on the market.

The JVC Everio GZ-X900 marries excellent video with decent photography, but at what cost?

JVC Everio GZ-X900 AVCHD Camcorder review

 

The camera's general form factor is, however, much to be recommended; it's chunky and handles well, but is compact enough to slip into a small pocket or bag. The docking station enables some external connections to remain permanent, dropping the camera...

JVC Everio X GZ-X900 Camcorder

 

Looking more like a digicam than perhaps any other product in modern camcorder history, JVC's new still/video hybrid makes an immediate aesthetic statement with its svelte lines and stripped-back appearance.The X achieves its slim waistline...
