Great Camcorder

John Regan, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: The JVC GZ-HM960 is a great camcorder. I have compaired it to the Canon HFR500, the JVC E210 and the JVC GZ-HM300 and the 960 beats them all hands down. The day and night videos are spectacular. The sound is good as is the zoom. After using all the settings I find the auto mode without the face detection on and shooting using the uxp and xvC mode produce the best video.

Good Enough

  • Summary: This one I bought out of my thrust towards video/photography. First video camera for me. JVC has done a good job with this camera but if you are looking for a good zoom this is not the one for you. 10x optical (or 15x dynamic) was not enough for me. Remote that comes with the camera is not that great and I had to use it with within 1 meter range to get it worked and also you have to point it sharp towards the camcorder.

  • Summary: Excellent. For that prise amazing camcorder. Very good quality movies, nights recording. Good stability and sound quality. I don't know why that camera's price is very low ( 2-3 years ago was almost £1000) but I'm not surprised for that price like ago must be very good quality etc.

  • Summary: The 3D is just a gimmick- quite entertaining as you can watch a standard TV in 3D on the camera monitor live display! The 2D performance of this cam is first class, I use it together with the 845 version for performance videos ( music and theatre) so it has to contend with tricky lighting conditions - as long as you set the cam up manually ( bit of a pain with touch screen only but worth the bother over auto settings).

HM960 a huge disappointment, considering the specifications

tull+power, Amazon
11 March 2012
  • Summary: On paper, the HM960 looks like a winner, boasting impressive specifications; large image sensor, large F1.2 aperture, wide angle and low light sensitivity; all better or equal to any premium camcorder on the market. What actually counts though, the image quality, is a huge disappointment. Noise, grain and signs of overprocessing are obvious on all videos and pictures.

A huge disappointment, considering the specifications.

tull+power, Amazon

  • Summary: On paper, the HM960 looks like a winner; largest image sensor, large aperture, wide angle and low light sensitivity, all the best in the premium camcorder class. What actually counts though, the image quality is a huge disappointment. Noise, grain and signs of overprocessing are obvious on all videos and photos. This gives all output from this camcorder a dirty look, even when viewed at a distance.

  • Excerpt: Камера попадает в не слишком популярный сегмент, поэтому, как мне кажется, незаслуженно не пользуется спросом.
  • Pros: Главное достоинство - матрица! И этим все сказано: сравните ее качества с другими, чуть более дешевыми камерами. У этой камеры физический размер матрицы 1/2,3" и количество пикселей 10.62 Мпикс. И сборка в Малайзии (ИМХО лучше чем Китай).
  • Cons: Единственный - нет оптического стабилизатора изображения. Но камеры с ним и с аналогичной матрицей уже минимум на 50% дороже (это я сравниваю с предложениями за 10 тыс.). Так что решайте сами, нужен ли он вам. Есть электронный стабилизатор, благо большая матрица позволяет его использовать. Про фактическое качество стабилизации пока ничего сказать не могу - первая камера. Если не проявлять должной сноровки изображение немного "трясется" ( Нет Wi-Fi (но это "плюшки", по...

JVC GZ-HM960BEU

A. Vogelpohl, Amazon
15 March 2013
  • Summary: Der Camcorder erfüllt im Wesentlichen die Erwartungen. Die Bedienung über den Touchscreen ist allerdings verbersserungsbedürftig und wenig intuitiv. Einige Funktionen sind gar nicht oder nur unzureichend dokumentiert. Die Videofunktion erziehlt qualitativ gute Ergebnisse, wenn gleich die Antiverwackelfunktion im Vergleich zu meinen vorhergehneden Sony Camcorder eher schlecht ist. Die Fotofunktion ist eher unterirdisch.

  • Excerpt: В целом не плохая камера для домашнего видео. 3D полная ерунда, выводится только на экран камеры и то все расплывается. Экран иной раз без чехла сам открывается и садит батарею.
  • Pros: Обычная камера для спокойной и хорошо освещенной съемки.
  • Cons: Слабый стабилизатор. Кнопки фото и видео затерлись через неделю, Видео через строчное, но за эту цену лучше сложно найти. За счет большого экрана батарея садится быстро, родной на 20 мин. хватает. Видеомонтажеры без энтузиазма работали с форматом записи камеры.
