Laser Touch Operation

Touch-sensitive scroll bar and buttons for smooth operation (except for GZ-MS110). Allows zooming and recording using either the Laser Touch or standard zoom lever and REC button. Browsing through indexes and menu selection is easier than ever. Since you don't touch the LCD screen itself, you can keep the screen clean and fingerprint-free.
Advanced Image Stabilizer

Great improvement on New Everio is its anti-shake performance. A new technology called Advanced Image Stabilizer expands the effective area at wide angle to 4 times that of 2009 models, delivering powerful compensation for camera shake. You can enjoy stable results even if you're trotting alongside your subject.
Super LoLux

Low light performance is one of the key factors for quality video. New Everio's Super LoLux ensures superior sensitivity to low light. To provide this, High Definition models (selected) are equipped with a Back-illuminated CMOS sensor that allows intake of more light while Standard Definition models offer a large 1/6" high-sensitivity CCD. The result is clear images with precise colors even in low light. No worry while indoors or in dark situations.

Time Lapse REC
Various unique shooting functions are equipped on New Everio. Time-Lapse REC records one frame at a time at set intervals (1sec.–80sec.). So you can watch an hour-long movement in just a short amount of time when played back. It's great when you want to observe an event that takes place over a long period of time, or to record unique-looking scenes in a creative way.
Auto REC

Another unique function is Auto REC. When a subject enters the detecting area and the luminance changes, recording starts automatically. Recording continues as long as there is movement within the area and automatically stops after 5 seconds of no movement. You can use it like a surveillance camera, or to observe something. Discover new ways to use the camera.
Everio MediaBrowser - Integrated PC Software Included

All Everio models come with high-value software that provides everything from file playback, management, as well as easy sharing functions, within a single application. Its calendar type graphical user interface displays thumbnail images of your recordings, superimposed on the date they were taken.

I am an amateur when it comes to cameras, camcorders and the like. I'm basically a point and shoot type of customer that wants a good quality camcorder for recording our families activities. This is an outstanding camcorder for the money! First and foremost it takes very good quality videos. While I'm sure the videos aren't the highest of hi-def possible keep in mind this is a $300 and change camcorder. The video quality far outshines your standard camcorder. The two other features - the time elapse and the motion detection both work very well, although outside of surveillance I'm not sure what the use of either is. The motion detection might be handy at something like a basketball game where you would point it at one end of the court and only capture the action when it's on that end. The only con I had with the camera wasn't really the camera's fault. I couldn't get the Patriot 16GB memory card to work consistently. I bought the Transcend cards and they work perfectly.

Before I begin I'd like to point out I paid $120 for a recertified version of this camcorder. That included the battery, manual and all the cords. If I had spent $1,000+ for this camcorder my review probably wouldn't be as positive as it is, but considering the performance of other ~$100 camcorders this is by far the best camcorder you can buy.

Probably the best feature of this camcorder is the 20x optical zoom. A good zoom is absolutely necessary on any camcorder. I've noticed some other brands of HD camcorders are only 10x or 12x and they still want $800+. I have no idea what people are thinking when they buy a camcorder with only a 10x zoom. That's fine for a birthday party or indoor home movies, but if you're recording a school play or soccer game you're really going to miss not being able to zoom in and see your child's face as they deliver their lines or score the game winning goal and smiles at you from across the field. Five or ten years ago every camcorder was 40x zoom, not sure why we've fallen back to only 10x but I'd like to see this trend reverse.

I've read other people complaining about the low light abilities of this camcorder. I'm not going to lie, I've seen better, but most modern HD camcorders don't seem to handle low light well, you'll have to pay $1,000+ for one that does a really good job of low light. When I say low light I don't mean christmas morning home video, I mean turning off the lights when presenting a birthday cake or sitting around a campfire. It does have a feature where it will record in low light but it slows down the framerates to the point where it's not useful unless no one is moving. There's video examples on youtube of this camcorder in low light if you'd like to see how it does.

It was a tough choice, but I feel confident that I bought the right camcorder. The timelapse function was the main factor in my search, but don't feel that I sacrificed much else in this decision (except for horrible low-light sensitivity).

My only real regret about this camera is the output file format. The software allows for some output options, but the .mts file format is not compatible with most apps. Apparently, the HD output will not be as good as what you see thru the camera playback. The software assumes that you will be burning the videos onto DVD, which is OK if you don't care for HD. I'm still not sure if full HD playback is possible without the camera as the player. There are some conversion programs out there that will allow the videos to be edited with the popular editing apps, but I don't yet have any experience with such conversions. This is the biggest problem with the JVC GZ-HM300.

Good zoom, excellent resolution, and good battery life. Now, if I can only get that HD video out into the real world.
If I'm wrong, please someone set me straight...

I have read some of the negative reviews posted for this camera as well as the HM320 and HM340 (which are identical cameras with built in flash memory). First, I think the "haters" need to understand where this product is positioned in the market. This is a mid-level consumer grade HD camcorder, that has been market down to ~$200, making it an entry level price. If you want to compare this camera to flag ship Sony and Canon cameras, the "haters" can fairly say that those cameras are superior in most respects and they are welcomed to buy them for an extra $600 to $800. This JVC Everio GZ-HM series of cameras will give roughly 75-85% of the performance of those cameras, for a fifth of the price. I have had roughly 8 camcorders, and I currently own a Canon HG10-which was the top of the line Canon two years ago. That camera still takes the best video footage I have ever seen short of a professional grade camera.

In outdoor shooting, the JVC looks very good--so long as the zoom is kept below 8X, unless you're using a tripod.Because this camera has a small sensor, using zoom above 8x does reduce the quality of the video, although it is still very watchable. The lack of optical image stablization does the quality of the image as well, but none of its competitors have optical image stablization and you will need to spend an additional $400 to find a camcorder that offers this feature.

As far as fit and finish is concerned, the camera is SMALL--it is basically a smidgen larger than a Flip UltraHD camera and weighs about an ounce more. This camera can fit in your pocket, although you will get a slight bulge (not a bad thing for some of the guys out there). The camera seems to be solidly built, although it is mostly plastic.
