JVC Everio GZ-HM400

 

The Everio GZ-HM400 camcorder is an impressive return to the high-end for JVC.

The JVC Everio GZ-HM400 is an impressive return to the high-end for JVC after a year of absence. The level and ease of control is on par with the best of the competition, providing ample settings for the creative video enthusiast. The sub-£700 price is...

JVC Everio GZ-HM400 review

 

Like the Canon HF S10, the JVC Everio GZ-HM400 can shoot 1,920 x 1,080 video at 24Mbps - the highest level possible under current AVCHD spec - and it includes 32GB of internal flash memory, plus lots of manual controls. It also has a 10x optical zoom...

The JVC Everio GZ-HM400 produces excellent picture quality in bright light conditions, and has lots of manual control options. Unfortunately, the Laser Touch system is frustrating to use and slow, the JVC Everio GZ-HM400 is tricky to hold comfortably,...

JVC GZ-HM400 camcorder review

 

An ok HD camcorder, but pricey considering its features sometimes come up short

Great shots in decent conditions, slow motion looks cool

Narrow lens, not great in low light

JVC GZ-HM400

 

JVC's GZ-HM400 has a 1/2.33in, 10.3MP CMOS sensor and records Full HD images at up to 24Mbps to a 32GB internal flash memory. For longer recording an SD/SDHC card slot makes it possible to use removable media. A 2.8in LCD screen features Laser Touch...

Feed the HM400 plenty of light and the movie clips and stills it produces will be a delight. It’s a feature-packed model and its versatility is among the many reasons to consider it if, that is, you want a high-quality camcorder that requires more than...

JVC Everio GZ-HM400

 

With the current trend for full-specification 1920 x 1080 camcorders that record to built-in flash memory and high-capacity SD cards as opposed to tapes, DVDs or even hard disk drives, JVC has now joined Panasonic and Canon in introducing an impressive...

It's easy to forget that it was JVC who led the migration from tape-based camcorders to those that used hard disks and, subsequently, solid-state memory. The HM400 is a worthy flagship for its Everio HD range of camcorders. While it lacks some of the...

Whilst the Everio GZ-HM400 lacks some of the features and functionality of its immediate competitors, it’s important to consider that it’s a lot cheaper. Picture and sound quality is on a par with equivalent competitors’ models, and our main criticism...

JVC GZ-HM400U High Definition Video Camera

 

I requested the JVC GZ-HM400U because it has a sensor with a high pixel count, thinking that perhaps this would result in higher quality video, and I guessed right. Its sharpness value is as about as good as it gets, and is the best we have seen so...

JVC Everio GZ-HM400 Camcorder Review

 

The GZ-HM400 ($999 MSRP) is the larger, more sophisticated cousin model to the JVC GZ-X900. While both camcorders have similar imaging specifications, the GZ-HM400 is packed with extra controls, 32GB of internal memory, and a splendid adjustment dial...

We were pleasantly surprised by how much of an improvement the JVC GZ-HM400 was over the GZ-X900. Both camcorders have the same price tag ($999 MSRP), so it is a no-brainer that the GZ-HM400 is the better buy. The HM400 has more features and better...
