JVC HD Everio GZ-HD3 camcorder review

best4reviews.com
17 April 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

JVC EVERIO GZ-HD3 Review

Digitaltrends

  • Conclusion: The GZ-HD3 camcorder is a good performer when there’s enough light. Video quality under these conditions is very pleasing and natural—like real life, the way high-def is supposed to be. When you go indoors there’s a fall off with lots of noise and issues grabbing quick focus. And I’m really disappointed JVC dropped the OIS—especially for the camcorder costing around $1,200 USD.
  • Pros: 60GB HDD 3-CCD HD camcorder with 10x zoom
  • Cons: No optical image stabilization or flash

  • 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
