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

30 September 2007
  • Excerpt: After years of pretty stagnant camcorder sales of around 4-5 million per year, it’s expected close to 20 percent more will be purchased in 2007. To this observer the reason is pretty simple—HDTV. People are buying flat-panel televisions by the millions and really enjoy HD programming and higher-quality DVDs on widescreens. Standard definition 4:3 aspect ratio video really doesn’t cut it anymore—especially on a pretty flat panel display.
  • Pros: 60GB HDD 3-CCD HD camcorder with 10x zoom
  • Cons: No optical image stabilization or flash
