Reviewer David Elrich scored it an 8 out of 10, and was very impressed with the camera’s image quality — “The  movies were top notch with trees showing excellent, deep greens and flowers just the right amount of yellow, pink and red. Clips taken at the beach were also spot-on with beautiful wave reflections, accurate skies and colorful outfits on cyclists.”  He also praised its low-light performance.

Here are his “Highs” and “Lows”:

Highs:

  • Outstanding video quality
  • Built-in 64GB flash memory
  • Very good stills
  • Superior image stabilization system
  • Good low-light shooting

Lows:

  • Expensive, definitely not a Flip
  • LCD screen should be larger and better
  • Still don’t like the Laser Touch interface
  • Eats batteries
  • Clunky accessory adaptor system
  • Doesn’t accept SDXC cards

HD Everio GZ-HM1 Wins Worldwide Imaging Award

The top model in the HD Everio line, the GZ-HM1, recently received top honors in a prestigious worldwide photo and imaging awards program. The GZ-HM1 was named the Best Expert Camcorder in the Technical Image Press Association’s (TIPA) TIPA Awards. Here’s the press release issued by JVC in Japan.

JVC Full HD Camera Named Best Expert Camcorder in TIPA Awards 2010

Yokohama, Japan, April 28, 2010? JVC (Victor Company of Japan, Limited) announced today that its
full HD camcorder, the Everio GZ-HM1, received the Best Expert Camcorder prize in the Technical
Image Press Association (TIPA)’s prestigious TIPA Awards 2010, the most coveted photo and imaging
awards worldwide.

According to the TIPA judging committee: “In the area of low light performance, the JVC GZ-HM1
provides superior results thanks to a new CMOS sensor that boosts sensitivity to 4 Lux. JVC made
improvements in camera shake compensation at wide angle performance. Most stabilization efforts
focus on high zoom ratios, but camera shake also occurs at wide angle settings, especially when the
camera user is moving along with the subject. JVC uses prism technology in the GZ-HM1 to provide
effective results at the wide-angle end of the zoom range.”
JVC released the GZ-HM1 for high-end video enthusiasts and semi-professionals on January 7 of this
year.
TIPA, an independent non-profit association, held its general assembly in New York from April 8 to 10,
during time which the editors of 28 photo magazines from nine European countries, Canada, South
Africa and the U.S. voted on the best photo and imaging products introduced during the previous 12
months. The judges evaluated products for innovation, leading-edge technology, design, ergonomics,
ease of use and cost-performance. For more information, visit www.tipa.com/english.
