JVC Everio GZ-HD6EK review

28 November 2008
  • Summary: This is a good choice of camera if huge storage capacity is a big factor. The JVC Everio GZ-HD6EK produces good pictures and sound and has a comprehensive set of connection options including FireWire. However, we found it rather bulky and the use of Mpeg2 rather archaic. Mac users should also note that it supports only 1440 CBR video. Windows users enjoy full HD capabilities.

JVC Everio GZ-HD6 Review

25 March 2008
  • Excerpt: The camcorder world is moving into the high-def column of the video ledger. At the January Consumer Electronics Show, a flotilla of high-def models were launched and they’re slowly coming to the proverbial store near you—including the new JVC GZ-HD6. This $1,399 USD camcorder is a far cry from the crappy MPEG-4 video makers readily available for a 100 clams. Although barely good enough for a YouTube opus, people buy them because they’re cheap—what a shock!
  • Pros: Excellent 1080p video; optical image stabilization; attractive design
  • Cons: Mic picks up wind noise; missing a flash or video light; no hot shoe

  • Conclusion: Für die JVC spricht fast nur der fehlende CMOS-Rollling-Shutter und in speziellen Fällen vielleicht noch die MPEG2-Aufzeichnung. Schade, dass JVC nicht auf mögliche Innovationen wie HDV auf SD oder professionelle Bedienbarkeit wie bei der HD7 gesetzt hat.
  • Pros: Kein Rolling Shutter, dank CCD
  • Cons: kein Sucher, Lowlight, Nicht sonderlich scharf, maunuelle Einstllmöglichkeiten

JVC Everio GZ-HD6 / GZ-HD5

28 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Gegenüber aktuellen Festplatten-AVCHD-Camcodern wie Sonys SR-11/SR-12 spricht wenig für die neuen HD-Everios. So bietet Sony ungefähr in der selben Preislage einen Sucher, einen akzeptablen Ersatz für ein Fokusrad, die innovativere Bedienung per Touchscreen, ein für HD brauchbares Display, die bessere Bild- und Lowlightqualität, sowie die doppelte Aufnahmezeit bei selber Festplattengröße.
