Summary: I use this for family shooting & also for amateur slow frame firearms gunsmith analyzing. It's a great unit. Still pictures turn out great, really like having an SD card slot for extra storage. HDMI feature is handy as well. File type is annoying but nothing adobe premier or other video software can't deal with.
Summary: very easy to use ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Summary: I like to shoot video with it and turn on FullHD for best quality.Camera works great, but be sure to set everything manually for ... Better than what I expected. My Gz-hm1 is used for work get-togethers, wedding, at celemony or event. I use it to show off the time lapse of people.. Have enough memory for my job. It is nice cute camcorder. JVC advertised it as Good image outdoor","Nice handy butons","Very cute and handy Low lens angle..
Summary: I choose JVC from Canon And Sony, based on the reviewer before. When moving the camera (panic) the subject became blur and big shadow.If you moving slow it is OK, but to me dos not have fast focusing. Also grainy picture indoor in a good day light. Costumer service said, that may be from the settings, but in auto mode in bright room it should do really god, as HD camera for a $1,000.00!!! It has a manual settings and external buttons, which I like.
I have only had this a short time, so my review is somewhat limited.

Summary: So it has been a short time, the real test will be next week, for our family vacation. Then it will be the normal usage from then on. I've experimented with the slow motion, which is great! but limited by time, 600 fps is a little choppy but amazing, 300, and 120 are much clearer and are great for slowing down flips and rotations into the pool. Playback when downloaded on the computer has it's drawbacks, however I think its more me having to reconfigure things.
Summary: This is the first HD camcorder I have owned, but not the first one I have used. I am writing this review mainly to correct the impression given in the review "Fatal flaw in this video camera design!" In that review it states "when you're in manual mode, the only autofocus you can use is the face detection system. You must go into the face tracking AF and turn it on to get autofocus.
Summary: I tested the camcorder over the period of several weeks outdoors in bright sunshine as well as indoors, even recording a single candle in a dark room. Top resolution photos were taken as well. When done I reviewed the videos on a 60-inch HDTV via HDMI, closely inspected images on a monitor (400%) and made full-bleed 8×10 prints with no post processing. This is a very good camcorder that also takes quality 10-megapixel stills. I have issues with it (Laser Touch).
Summary: After very careful study and consideration over the last several months, I decided to go ahead and go with this JVC GZ-HM1 rather than the Canon HF S21 or Sony HDR-CX550V. One of my main concerns was low light shooting. Although I believe that both the Canon and JVC to be similar in their great quality picture during normal lighting conditions, unfortunately, the Canon does not have a backlit CMOS sensor introduced this year by JVC, and last year by Sony.
Summary: […] EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE OTHER HALF A DEZON OF HIGH DEF CAMCODRERS OUT THERE. I WENT WITH THE JVC-HMI BECAUSE OF ITS ABILITY TO PERFORM IN REAL LOW LIGHT SITUATIONS. ITS TAKES REAL GOOD 10 MPS STILL AND ON DUAL MODE IT TAKES OK STILL. THE GRAINS ON THE PICTURES ARE VISIBLE ON LOW LIGHT CONDITIONS. THIS CAMCODER IS SURPIDINGLY SMALL. ITS ONLY THE SIZE OF THE NEW HIGH END SMART PHONES THESE DAYS, LIKE THE HTC EVO.
