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: […] 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.
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: I spent hours researching online to buy a new video camera to replace my Canon HV20. I finally settled on this JVC and spent $1,000 buying the camera, wide angle adapter, extended battery and extra charger. I just got the JVC GZ-HM1 and started playing with it only to discover that it works only in fully automatic mode or fully manual mode. And when they say automatic, they mean it. In auto mode you CAN NOT even set a custom white balance!
Summary: I read a million reviews and spent months researching camcorders before deciding on this model, and I can honestly say I am completely satisfied. The video quality is absolutely stunning, as well as the image stabilization and low light performance. And it even takes great still pictures. This is truly broadcast quality HD for well under $1,000. What more could you ask?
Summary: I purchased this cam to document my trip in the US. Really amayzing video quality in daylight, pretty good in low ligth. Darker places sometimes needs user to set manual focus (couse in real dark sometimes it losts auto), but after that its still very good. The image stabilization and zoom are very easy to customize, and both work perfect. 10MP camera makes pritty good images!!! sum: really love it, think its really recommended.
