The JVC GZ-HM30 HD Everio PAL 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.

Shooting 40x Optical Zoom Konica Minolta HD Lens

When recording in HD, you get up to 40x optical zoom - the industry's highest level. When recording in standard definition, the Dynamic zoom function uses nearly all of the effective pixels of the CMOS to achieve up to 70x magnification without any degradation of picture quality



Intelligent AUTO

Wherever you point the camera, it instantaneously analyzes faces, brightness, color and distance, to automatically select the best settings for the scene. Brightness, sharpness, chroma and gamma values, and more, are continuously optimized. Get the best possible shot, anytime!



HD/SD Dual Format Recording

Record in AVCHD full HD if you want to watch the results on an HDTV or burn 1280 x 720 resolution videos to a Blu Ray disc or DVD. In addition you can record in standard definition to edit 720 x 480 resolution videos for longer recording times, burn to standard DVDs and share with people who haven't upgraded to HDTV yet. Remember HD for higher quality recordings or SD for broad compatibility and longer recording time the choice is yours

Advanced Image Stabilizer


Camera-shake compensation is another important feature of a video camera. Our Advanced Image Stabilizer (A.I.S.) expands the effective area at wide angle, delivering powerful compensation for camera shake. Now, you can enjoy stable results even if you're trotting alongside your subject


2-Way Grip Belt

The newly designed belt works both ways - as a standard grip belt or a convenient wrist strap. You can choose which way, to best match your style of shooting or carrying at any time



Time-Lapse REC

Time-Lapse REC records one frame at a time at set intervals (1-80 seconds). So you can watch movement that's hours long in just a few seconds 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

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.
