JVC Everio GZ-HD6 Review

25 March 2008
  • Conclusion: I’m glad to see the Class of 2008 high-def camcorders has kicked off with a bang. This 1080p model is a winner especially when shooting outdoors and it’s not too shabby in available light. Quality is very impressive, menus are easy to navigate and adjust, the ergonomics are just dandy. There’s my usual caveat—you have to hold it yourself and make that decision since everyone’s hands are different. That said, if it fits your hand, definitely put it on the short list.
  • Pros: Excellent 1080p video; optical image stabilization; attractive design
  • Cons: Mic picks up wind noise; missing a flash or video light; no hot shoe

  • Summary: The Everio GZ-HD6 is a solid HDD camcorder that can match most high-def cameras when it comes to picture quality. Unfortunately, it lacks many of the features found on Sony's 120GB offering, which happens to retail for exactly the same price.
  • Pros: Solid video performance in optimum lighting, records in 'full' 1080p HD, 120GB hard drive, large range of manual controls, excellent optical image stabiliser
  • Cons: Results were below average in dim lighting, lacks many of the features found on its chief rival

JVC Everio GZ-HD6 / GZ-HD5

6 January 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.

  • 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

  • Conclusion: 上位モデルとなるGZ-HD6は、再生出力系信号処理回路に同社の液晶テレビ「EXE(エグゼ)シリーズ」に搭載する画像処理エンジン「GENESSA(ジェネッサ)」技術を採用。家庭用ビデオカメラとして世界で初めて1920×1080/60p出力に対応した。また、同社が従来から採用する全画素読み出し方式のプログレッシブCCDカメラシステムとカメラ系画像処理エンジン「HDギガブリッド」を合わせて、信号の「入口」「出口」の両方でプログレッシブ(倍密)処理する「W倍密」を採用している。映像記録時にはインターレース映像となるが、記録前の映像処理および映像の再生時にプログレッシブ処理を行うことで、よりシャープでジャギーの少ない映像再現を可能にしているという。 下位モデルのGZ-HD5は1920×1080/60p出力に対応しないほか、HDD容量が60GBと少ない。また、ヘッドホン出力端子が省かれている以外に機能面での違いはない。 両機種ともアプリケーションソフトとして、「CyberLink BD Solution」を付属する。Windows...
