The JVC GZ-HM445 HD Everio PAL Camcorder is a 1920 x 1080p high def cam for those looking to do more with their video than just point and shoot. At its relatively budget-friendly price-point, the HM445 provides you with not only HD video, but still image capture, and a host of shooting controls. In addition, the camera also boasts dual SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards slots that allow for seamless recording from one card to another - freeing you up from changing media in the middle of shooting.


The core controls and tools of the camera include a 2.7" touch panel LCD, 70x Dynamic zoom, and image stabilization. And at the heart of the camera, capturing that vibrant and detailed footage is the 1/5.8" 1.5Mp CMOS sensor. Shooting controls of the HM445 include helpful options like Intelligent Auto, which takes over the camera and picks the right combination of settings for your shooting situation. Other useful controls include Time-Lapse REC, Smile Meter/Smile Shot, and many more. When you're done shooting the camera comes with editing software built-in for tweaking and uploading your footage right to the 'net.

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 all 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 1920 x 1080 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 DVD 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

Video Format Features

AVCHD: HD 1920 x 1080


  • Quality without compromise
  • Smooth motion playback thanks to 1080/60i support
  • Optimal playback for full HD compatible TVs
  • Ideal for capturing important memories and events

Standard definition: 720 x 480


  • For users viewing standard definition on their current TVs
  • Easy to edit without a high-spec computer
  • Extended recording times possible

Advanced Image Stabilizer

Camera-shake compensation is another important feature of a video camera. The 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

Face Sub-Window

Touch on a face on the LCD screen, and that face is automatically shown enlarged in a corner of the screen. So you can record both a group shot and a close-up of someone at the same 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. Discover new ways to use the camera

Smile Meter

Just say cheese! The Smile Meter keeps an eye on how much your subjects are smiling, giving you a % display. With Smile Shot, the camera automatically takes a picture (in video mode) every time the smile % reaches a certain level. It's a great way to take group shots filled with smiling faces

Animation Effect

Choose the theme, and the camera automatically spices up your footage with animated fun graphics and effects while you record. Add an extra touch to make your memories look extra special

Everio MediaBrowser 3

Because it's built right into the Everio camera itself, the new Everio MediaBrowser 3 can be installed directly on your PC right after connecting via USB. No CD required!
