JVC Everio GZ-HM340 Camcorder Review

$499.00 MSRP


The GZ-HM340 from JVC is a new entry-level HD camcorder that performs like a solid mid-range model. Its performance is on par with that of last year's GZ-HM200 from JVC, but it lacks most manual controls and its design leaves something to be desired.
