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.
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
