Review: JVC Everio GZ-HD5 HD camcorder

 

JVC's Everio GZ-HD5 is a digital camcorder that uses three charge-coupled devices (CCDs) to record high-definition video to its built-in 60GB hard drive. The quality of the video captured on the GZ-HD5 was decent (though we've seen better), and the...

Light and compact, the barrel-shaped GZ-HD5 fit comfortably in the palm of my hand, with the record, zoom and, snapshot controls within easy reach for one-handed filming. The camcorder lacks a viewfinder, which would have been helpful for shooting in...

JVC Everio GZ-HD5 review

 

JVC's latest camcorder combines 3-CCD technology, hard drive storage and high definition video recording. Discover what we think of this high-tech camcorder.

60GB hard drive; microSD slot for additional storage capacity

Difficult to transfer video to Mac; mediocre video image quality; short battery life

Despite its compact size and 3-CCD capture capability, JVC’s Everio GZ-HD5 offers mediocre video and still quality. Couple that with difficult file transfer and editing problems and it's hard to recommend this camcorder over other, more compatible...

No High Def is better than poor High Def

 

The JVC Everio GZ-HD5 features three low resolution 1/5" sensors (3CCD) each with 570 pixels. Though these sensors may have worked well on JVC's GENESSA HD display, they do not work well for the Everio HD Camcorder. The MPEG 2-TS ...

Lightweight, easy to use, solid software,variety of inputs, multiple resolutions

Fantastic clarity, easy to use

 

The camera is compact, lightweight, easy to use and produces a very clear high definition image. I can't believe how easy it is to upload footage to you tube to share with my family. I like the sleek design and the built in memory it save paying a high...
