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.
Bluetooth Technology
GZ-HM550 features built-in Bluetooth Wireless Technology. In combination with optional devices, you can enjoy a variety of wireless applications.

With a compatible smartphone, you can control the camera's basic operations such as record, zoom, or playback, remotely. (Installation of application is required.)

You can transfer still images from Everio to a compatible smartphone, with no cables attached. Makes it easy to carry your favourite images.

With a GPS unit, you can record location data on movie files. Those files synchronize with Google EarthTM when playing back with Everio MediaBrowser on a PC.

With a compatible headset, you can monitor sound while shooting or record your own voice.

Note: Works at a distance of up to 11 yards/10m (approx.). Depending on radio wave activity or physical obstructions in your surroundings, or characteristics of the product you are using, communication may terminate abruptly, headset audio quality may degrade, or communication distance may become reduced to under 11 yards/10m.
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.
