JVC Everio GZ-X900


The JVC Everio GZ-X900 marries excellent video with decent photography, but at what cost?

JVC Everio X GZ-X900


Despite a few complaints, and the camera's poor results in low light, I admit the Everio X gives me more satisfaction than the high-end Sanyo Xacti or Sony's latest compact Handycam TG5V or TG7, in both low and bright light. Yes, despite my few...

It doesn't shout “quality”, but this camera takes fantastic HD video

Whilst we have reservations about aspects of the X900′s general picture performance, it’s also fair to state that this JVC “HD Memory Camera” is well placed to satisfy the needs of the market for which it is intended; it doubles as a high-quality 9...

JVC - Everio GZ-X900


JVC's latest digital camcorder is a curious hybrid beast that attempts to be innovative in several areas whilst also keeping up with the Joneses in terms of current fashionable technological trends. The latter is most ...

JVC has gone for the compact look (and weight) with the new X900, using SD storage, a bigger and more powerful CMOS sensor, improved optical image stabilization and high quality HD images. The controls are still irritating, though, and the price might...

JVC Everio GZ-X900 AVCHD Camcorder


JVC's GZ-X900 represents a considerable departure from the smooth, rounded looks of the Everio hard disk and solid-state camcorders that have helped to revolutionise home video in the past few years. The customary curves and glossy body finish have...

The camera's general form factor is, however, much to be recommended; it's chunky and handles well, but is compact enough to slip into a small pocket or bag. The docking station enables some external connections to remain permanent, dropping the camera...

JVC Everio GZ-X900 HD camcorder


The Everio GZ-X900's substandard low-light performance undercuts the camcorder's clever features and slick appearance

Attractive design, innovative user interface, handy YouTube upload tool

Sub par video performance; especially indoors, poor battery life, too expensive

The JVC Everio GZ-X900 is a decent high-definition camcorder let down by its poor low-light performance. There are plenty of better (and cheaper) options on the market.

JVC Everio X GZ-X900


JVC's Everio X GZ-X900 high-definition camcorder ($1000 as of September 25, 2009) has a sleek design, includes a few innovative features, and generates acceptable HD video under bright lighting conditions. Unfortunately, the unit's noticeably subpar...

Clever YouTube Upload feature ; Good performance in bright light

Terrible video in common low-light settings ; Only 1080/60i capture

The GZ-X900's substandard low-light performance outweighs the camcorder's clever features and slick appearance.

JVC Everio GZ-X900 Camcorder Review


The GZ-X900 ($999 MSRP) is the newest top-of-the-line HD camcorder from JVC, and it's a model that is unique in both design and capability. The camcorder has a streamline, rectangular construction that does away with the traditional right-side hand...

The JVC GZ-X900 ($999 MSRP) seems like the tale of two camcorders. It was truly excellent in much of our bright light testing-specifically motion and sharpness-but once the lights went down the camcorder produced atrocious video. Its image was dark,...
