JVC Everio GZ-HM400 video review



Read the full JVC Everio GZ-HM400 review

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 also very encouraging. Only the mediocre low light performance lets the side down. Otherwise, this is a capable, well-designed camcorder worthy of consideration if you're serious about your videomaking.

An American website has just published first impressions of the upcoming GZ-HM1 (this designation could be different for Europe), which is an update to the GZ-MH400. The most significant difference is the 1/2.3-inch back-illuminated CMOS sensor, which should improve low light performance. This should also make still photos even sharper. And there is also the new Advanced Image Stabilizer for even more stable images. The recommended price quoted is $1199.95, with availability from March.

I'm sure we'll be taking a look at that as soon as it comes out in the UK.
