OIS Issues

S. Lopez, Amazon
24 May 2007
  • Summary: I just spoke with JVC customer support and they acknowledged that the OIS in the GZHD7 is 'weak'. He said the issue is mechanical and that no fix or patch will be released for the current model.

Optical Image Stabilization is DEFECTIVE and not working!!

K. Nichols, Amazon
19 May 2007
  • Summary: The Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) feature on the GZ-HD7 is not working on my camera and from what I've read on the internet its not working for alot of other GZ-HD7 owners either. I've been in contact with JVC for a week now about the OIS issue.

Note for Macintosh users using professional non-linear editing systems such as Final Cut Pro

Tim Jacoby, Amazon
28 April 2007
  • Summary: If you are using Final Cut Pro or other professional non-linear editing programs on the Mac, you cannot use the camera's native .TOD format, which is basically an MPEG inside the .TOD container. Forget about following JVC's instructions: they are too time-consuming and don't allow batch processing.

Could have been a contender...

Surya, Amazon
21 April 2007
  • Summary: I was looking for a nice "prosumer" camera to do some freelancing shooting on the side. The specs and price seemed about right for the camera but after excitedly taking it home and playing around with it, I discover it has NO headphone jack.

Should you consider the competition from Sony & Canon?

Ross Mendel "Ross", Amazon
20 April 2007
  • Summary: There are three new (non-AVCHD) consumer HD camcorders that many people are looking at, the Sony HDR-HC7, the Canon HV20, and the newest, most expensive of the three, the JVC GZ-HD7. The specs on the JVC sure are great, it looks great, and the Amazon reviews for the JVC are glowing.

A year of experience

ynot4, Ciao
1 October 2008
  • Excerpt: First impressions was that it was better than I had hoped for! The styling, weight and general appearance was what I expected for £800 (bought November 2007 but I did have to shop around to find one at that price). All the reviews I read about the poor electronic stabilization were right!
  • Pros: It's not a Sony
  • Cons: I haven't got the money for a second one

JVC GZ-HD7 Camcorder - Long waited

traveller..., Ciao
24 May 2007
  • Excerpt: I have rewritten this review (new at all this) and I hope it is more helpful. I know like a lot of other people out there, I waited patiently for this product and can safely say that the GZ-HD7 delivers on some, but not all, of its promises.
  • Pros: focus ring is excellent
  • Cons: stubby height

No sé qué hacer

Alejandro, quesabesde.com
26 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Grabé como siempre lo hice, sin problemas. De un momento a otro la cámara simplemente no apagó y en el visor apareció que existe un archivo dañado. Luego, HDD error. Sin golperla, sin hacerle nada, me dijero que se había dañado el hard drive.

  • Excerpt: la verdad es que la calidad es bastante buena, la bateria de serie dura poco, el microfono integrado graba las pulsaciones de los botones!!!, es mejor añadir uno aunque si buscas el de JVC te vuelves loco para comprarlo y a un precio muy caro, al igual que el resto de accesorios, las baterias...
