JVC Everio GZ-HD7 Review

 

The Everio HD7 is a hefty camcorder but has a nice solid feel, balancing well in the palm of your hand.

JVC Everio GZ-HD7 review: JVC Everio GZ-HD7

 

JVC Everio GZ-HD7

Nice manual features; attractive design; high-quality audio; low-noise, low-light video.

Ineffectual optical stabilizer; needs a built-in ND filter; some horizontal jitter and stuttering during playback; low-resolution video; sad battery life.

If this camcorder cost $500, we'd give it a much higher rating. But for its quadruple-digit price, we expect far better performance and video quality from the JVC Everio GZ-HD7.

2007 has been an exciting - and confounding - year for consumer HD. It is exciting because never before have there been so many HD camcorders from the big four manufacturers, JVC, Panasonic, Sony, and Canon. Not only are there more HD camcorders than...

JVC GZ-HD7 First Impressions Camcorder Review

 

The JVC HD Everio GZ-HD7 announced earlier this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas joins the Everio camcorder line with some significant new technology. This camcorder is the first Everio to shoot in full 1080i and the first JVC...

This article contains less in the way of hard facts than most of our First Impression reviews and is much more speculative. JVC simply would not release information about the key features that piqued our interest most and was absolutely adamant that...

JVC GZ-HD7

 

JVC's GZ-HD7 is a powerhouse camcorder that offers a solid package of handling, manual controls, and features. Then why do HDV camcorders costing hundreds less produce better looking video? The problem, once again, might be JVC's determination to...

JVC Everio GZ-HD7

 

Always at the foray of hard disk-based camcorders, JVC's Everio GZ-HD7 was, at the time of release, the first full 1080i camcorder. On past units, JVC...

Good saturated colour balance, lots of features, manual focus ring, relatively crisp shots

Some noise in indoor shots, a little motion blur

JVC's Everio GZ-HD7 is a good, high-definition hard disk camcorder, however it is outperformed in several areas by competing models. For many users it will be perfectly adequate, but the high price tag and smattering of image quality issues mean there...

JVC Everio GZ-HD7E HD Camcorder

 

A consumer camcorder with a 1,920 x 1,080i resolution and no tapes. Sounds good, but is it?

The imaging system consists of a trio of CCDs, not the CMOSes now gaining favour with Sony and Canon. However, these are relatively small at 1/5in and each one only has 570,000 pixels – you would need four times that for true HD resolution. So to bump...
