Perched at the top of JVC’s Everio camcorder range, the GZ-HM400 should give its rivals a run for their money. Like the Canon HF S10, it can shoot 1,920 x 1,080 video at 24Mbps – the highest level possible under current AVCHD spec –...

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...

Mit der GZ-HM400 setzt sich JVC im Schrferennen an die Spitze unserer Messwerte aktueller 1000 Euro Kameras. Schade, dass man die Farben nicht mehr nachjustieren kann, denn diese bleiben Geschmackssache. Definitiv einen groen Schritt nach...
