JVC Everio GZ-X900 Camcorder Review
JVC’s new top-of-the-line model, unique in both design and capabilities.
The GZ-X900 ($999 MSRP) is the newest top-of-the-line HD camcorder from JVC, and it's a model that is unique in both design and capability. The camcorder has a streamline, rectangular construction that does away with the traditional right-side hand strap. It has the ability to take impressive 9-megapixel still images, and it offers three high-speed recording options that can capture ultra-slow motion video (up to 600fps).
With its unusual appearance and compelling features, the JVC GZ-X900 is clearly an intriguing camcorder. Unfortunately, its performance didn't live up to its hype in our testing labs, and the camcorder seemed to show off far more weaknesses than strengths.
