  • Conclusion: The GZ-HD30 is unquestionably the best consumer-level HD camcorder that JVC has ever produced. Sporting 80GB of inbuilt memory, AVCHD/MPEG-2 TS recording capabilities and an impressive low-light performance, it is bound to put a smile on most videographers' faces.
  • Pros: Excellent 'Full HD' video quality, 80GB hard drive, improved low-light performance, two HD video codecs
  • Cons: Cluttered menu interface, no optical image stabiliser, not particularly beginner-friendly

  • Conclusion: An sich ist der Versuch, dem Nutzer beide HD-Consumer-Formate zur Verfügung zu stellen eine gute Idee, jedoch fehlen in der Praxis einige Details die das Produkt letztlich rund machen würden (keine Kombination der Formate bei der Wiedergabe, kein Backup-Tape, keine HDV-Aufzeichung auf SD-Karte).
  • Pros: Viele manuelle Funktionen, Zwei Formate (AVCHD - MPEG2), gute Bild- und Lowlightqualität
  • Cons: Bedienung sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig, Formate nicht beliebig mischbar

  • Conclusion: Everio GZ-HD30:n erikoisuus on mahdollisuus tallentaa avchd-videon sijasta perinteisempää mpeg-2:ta, jota useammat ohjelmistot ymmärtävät. Kuvanlaadulta avchd on kuitenkin parempi vaihtoehto. 80 gigatavun kiintolevylle mahtuu runsaasti materiaal ...
  • Pros: Käyttöliittymä, Suuri kiintolevy
  • Cons: Kuvanvakain, Akkukesto
