JVC Everio GZ-HD6EK

 

Does a 120GB hard drive give JVC's GZ-HD6 camcorder a foothold in a growing flash memory market? James finds out.

JVC Everio GZ-HD6EK review

 

The advantage is that the JVC Everio GZ-HD6EK is capable of recording 1,920x1,080 video, with the option to output it progressively, provided you hook it up to a compatible flat-panel TV or projector using HDMI. Another feature of note for Mac users in...

This is a good choice of camera if huge storage capacity is a big factor. The JVC Everio GZ-HD6EK produces good pictures and sound and has a comprehensive set of connection options including FireWire. However, we found it rather bulky and the use of...

JVC Everio GZ-HD6EK review

 

The JVC Everio GZ-HD6EK HD camcorder sticks to TS/Mpeg2 high-definition video - the format AVCHD is ultimately expected to replace.

JVC Everio GZ-HD6EK

 

Since the introduction of iMovie HD in 2005, high-definition movie making has come a long way. We take a look at a group of HD camcorders to see what they have to offer the Mac-using movie maker.

JVC Everio GZ-HD6 HD Camcorder

 

JVC launched what it claimed to be the world's first full-HD camcorder (the GZ-HD7) in early 2007, and has since seen some success in the market with its wellfeatured and user-friendly models. However, unlike Sony's HDR-SR12 AVCHD camcorder, the Everio...

The Everio range of HDD/SD cameras from JVC has been good for users looking for good quality, user-friendliness and sturdy build quality. In that respect, it's reasonable to expect that the HD6 will keep its owners happy, even if it's pricier than...

Everio GZ-HD6

 

The GZ-HD6 replaces the HD3 as JVC's flagship high-definition camcorder. When we reviewed the HD3 back in 2007, we lamented the loss of many valuable ...

Solid video performance in optimum lighting, records in 'full' 1080p HD, 120GB hard drive, large range of manual controls, excellent optical image stabiliser

Results were below average in dim lighting, lacks many of the features found on its chief rival

The Everio GZ-HD6 is a solid HDD camcorder that can match most high-def cameras when it comes to picture quality. Unfortunately, it lacks many of the features found on Sony's 120GB offering, which happens to retail for exactly the same price.

JVC Everio GZ-HD6

 

In isolation the HD6 is a good camera, however, on almost every turn it is outpointed by its Sony counterpart, the HDR-SR12.

Decent quality HD video ; Pleasant, if blocky, aesthetics ; Full-size HDMI port

No electronic viewfinder ; MPEG2 TS file format not widely supported ; Poor quality stills ; Slow menu system

Conclusion In isolation the HD6, as well as its cheaper sibling, the HD5, are good cameras. However, on almost every turn they are outpointed by its Sony counterparts, the SR12 and SR11, respectively.

JVC Everio GZ-HD6 Camcorder Review

 

The JVC Everio GZ-HD6 ($1,399 MSRP) is the company's third high definition Everio, the series of camcorders that record to internal hard disk drives (HDD). The inaugural model, the GZ-HD7, was a mammoth that offered a pro feel but couldn't match it...

The JVC Everio GZ-HD6, with a 120GB HDD, has capacity on its side. For that matter, so does the Sony HDR-SR12, which has the same amount of storage. Beyond that, JVC has a hard road to hoe convincing consumers to choose its camcorder over the...
