We already liked JVC's Everio GZ-HM400 quite a lot, and the GZ-HM1 improves on it in a couple of important areas. With class-leading low light performance, competitive image stabilisation and a great set of features for the enthusiast, this is a capable camcorder which could even appeal to the semi-professional user. However, like its predecessor, its main downside is its price. At over £1,100, it's up against cheaper alternatives which are equally accomplished.
