The JVC GZ-HM30 HD Everio Camcorder is a budget-friendly gateway into high definition. Record 1280 x 720 video and up-convert to 1920 x 1080p for output. Those detailed, vibrant videos will look stunning on your HDTV or HD monitor - and you won't even have to take out a small loan to achieve this high-quality footage.

Just pick up an SD/SDHC or SDXC memory card, charge the battery, and you're ready to start recording. A Konica Minolta lens, 2.7" LCD, and features like Advanced Image Stabilizer (for blur-free video) and an impressive 40x optical zoom are the tools that'll help you preserve your memories.

Shooting controls like Intelligent AUTO and Face Detection, among others, will come in handy too - taking the guesswork out of recording. Instead of futzing with the camera's settings you too can enjoy the moment, along with everyone else. And when it's time to share, an HDMI mini output allows for a one cable connection to your HDTV. You can also use the included editing software for fine-tuning and sharing your video on the web with friends and family.
