JVC Everio GZ-HD7

 

Always at the foray of hard disk-based camcorders, JVC's Everio GZ-HD7 was, at the time of release, the first full 1080i camcorder. On past units, JVC...

Good saturated colour balance, lots of features, manual focus ring, relatively crisp shots

Some noise in indoor shots, a little motion blur

JVC's Everio GZ-HD7 is a good, high-definition hard disk camcorder, however it is outperformed in several areas by competing models. For many users it will be perfectly adequate, but the high price tag and smattering of image quality issues mean there...

JVC Everio GZ-HD7

 

If this camcorder cost AU$1,000, we'd give it a much higher rating. For its price, though, we expect far better performance and video quality.

Nice manual features ; Attractive design ; High-quality audio ; Low-noise, low-light video

Ineffectual optical stabilizer ; Needs a built-in ND filter ; Some horizontal jitter and stuttering during playback ; Low-resolution video ; Sad battery life

All of which adds up to a pretty disappointing camcorder, especially given the JVC Everio GZ-HD7's relatively high price tag.

JVC Everio GZ-HD7

Nice manual features; attractive design; high-quality audio; low-noise, low-light video.

Ineffectual optical stabilizer; needs a built-in ND filter; some horizontal jitter and stuttering during playback; low-resolution video; sad battery life.

If this camcorder cost $500, we'd give it a much higher rating. But for its quadruple-digit price, we expect far better performance and video quality from the JVC Everio GZ-HD7.

A great next-generation camcorder, but it lacks editing support for the recording format

I saw my friends GZ-HD7 and it is a awesome camcorder. The colours look realistic and sharp. It looks professional too. Where can I buy one as its at couple of years old now.

My friend did a wedding and we were blown away with the image quality. Its ashame I can't get one as they are discountinued because it is a 2007 model. I think the GZ-HD6 replaced it in 2008. I guess I'll settle for that.

JVC Everio GZ-HD7

 

I have found this JVC camcorder produces an awesome clear and crisp picture quality. It is a very compact HDV camcorder. However it mostly stays on the shelf and hardly gets used, this is because of it being incompatible with alot of edit software. I...

Excellent image quality

Alot of edit software does not support the camcorders strange codec
