Conclusion: • Good, not great video quality • Five-hour capacity (best resolution) • Excellent manual options • Attractive form factor • No AF Assist lamp, flash or light • Offloading and storing HD video • Expensive
Conclusion: JVC's Everio GZ-HD7 is a good, high-definition hard disk camcorder, however it is outperformed in several areas by competing models. For many users it will be perfectly adequate, but the high price tag and smattering of image quality issues mean there may be better purchases elsewhere.
Pros: Good saturated colour balance, lots of features, manual focus ring, relatively crisp shots
Cons: Some noise in indoor shots, a little motion blur
