The GZ-HM400EK Everio HD Memory Camera PAL Camcorder is a high-end consumer camcorder with a number of bells and whistles. As the name implies, the camera features 1920 x 1080 AVCHD recording along with a myriad of other recording options.

The HM400 provides 32GB of built-in flash memory storage and the option to record to SD/SDHC memory cards. Capturing all those high definition video and 9MP still images would be the impressive 10.3MP CMOS sensor, while a slightly larger than normal 2.8" LCD gives you room to compose and playback. The Konica Minolta HD lens with 15x Dynamic zoom and Optical Image Stabilization round out the primary features and functions.

Looking at the camcorder a little closer reveals considerations that allow for higher quality recording and control, whether you're an aspiring film-maker or you simply value options. First off, there's JVC's proprietary K2 Technology which restores audio details lost during compression. When it comes to manual adjustments the multi-function dial enables user control of brightness and focus while the direct control buttons give you easy access to Aperture Priority, Shutter Speed, and user-assignable operations. Other indispensable functions include an accessory shoe, the option to attach wide-angle or telephoto conversion lenses, and the microphone in and headphone out connections.

Finally, a number convenience features help to get the most out of your video and still images without worry. There's Ultra-Slow Motion Playback, simultaneous video and 5.3MP still capture, Face Detection, and Laser Touch Operation controls to name just a few. And when you're ready to share or store your footage the HM400 has plenty of options for that too. One Touch Upload allows for simply transfer of videos to YouTube, while One Touch Export allows for easy export of your videos to iTunes for playback on your iPod or iPhone. There's also One Touch DVD creation when connected to the optional JVC SHARE STATION.
