A Serious Joystick Focus: JVC GZHD3 2.0MP HD Digital Camcorder

Personal Electronics buzz
11 August 2009
  • Excerpt: The JVC GZHD3 weighs 1.5 ounces and measures 3-inch x 3.25-inch. The size is perfect for my hands and it is ergonomically designed for a great day of shooting. This camera has a different kind of focus ring. Instead it is a joystick on the edge of the 2.8-inch LCD display. It takes some getting use to, but the results are great.

JVC HD Everio GZ-HD3 camcorder review

30 March 2008
  • Summary: With picture quality closer to more expensive competitors than those in its immediate class, the JVC GZ-HD3 suggests itself as a good HD option for those on a budget, though the need to buy additional cabling and removable storage media to fully realise all its functionality loses it the ultimate accolade of both editor's choice and best buy badges.
  • Pros: Built-in 60GB hard drive, full sounding stereo audio, footage clearer and cleaner than competing AVCHD devices, solid and well built with unusual features at a consumer level, including lens hood
  • Cons: HDMI lead and SD cards are optional yet (relatively) essential extras

  • Summary: The GZ-HD3 is a solid HDD camcorder that will satisfy in most of the areas that count. Despite a few design issues, it offers a respectable performance for the asking price.
  • Pros: External mic jack, 'professional' design, image quality should impress most users
  • Cons: Minor performance issues, a bit bulky

Teurer kleiner Bruder: JVC Everio GZ-HD3

22 November 2007
  • Summary: Der Everio GZ-HD3 ist eine abgespeckte Version des JVC GZ-HD7. Damit fallen einige der extravaganteren Funktionen weg, doch der Preis ist für diesen Camcorder immer noch zu hoch.
  • Pros: attraktives Design, hochwertiger Klang, rauscharme Videos
  • Cons: schwache Video-Auflösung, benötigt eingebauten ND-Filter, kein Sucher

24 August 2007
  • Excerpt: JVC GZ-HD3 è sensibilmente più sottile della camcorder di successo JVC GZ HD7 e possiede ben 3CCD di colore. Con questa piccola, anzi, piccolissima videocamera sarà possibile registrare filmati per 5 ore consecutive e in Alta Definizione, grazie all'hard disk da 60 GB. Le immagini saranno di 1.440 x 1.080 pixel che, rispetto alla suddetta JVC GZ HD7 , non è molto, ma JVC GZ-HD3 riesce a compensare questa piccola mancanza con la sua incredibile leggerezza, con uno schermo...
  • Pros: Dimensioni, Everio Share Stations
  • Cons: Pixel
