Do all JVC everios have the same size thread?

Q. mine is the gz-hm320BU and it fits a 37 mm fisheye lens my friend wants to get an everio but he's getting a different model i want to know if his will also fit a 37 mm fisheye or not

A. Many JVC Everios have no thread an cannot support a lens filer or add-on lens. The GZ series are consumer grade. Your GZ-HM320BU was new in 2010. Consumer cams change about every 18 months, and yours is no longer available. This does not mean it is somehow "bad" or "obsolete - it is neither... but just the nature of consumer electronics.

JVC does not exactly make it easy on their website. But follow these steps:

http://camcorder.jvc.com/product.jsp?pathId=171 displays the current Everio high definition camcorders.
On any of them, click on "Compare".
Under "Select models to compare", click the top one to select it, then the right arrow. Or shift-click to select multiples (or all) and click the arrow to have them appear in the window to the right. Click "Display Chart". Scroll down to "Filter Diameter." Some have a 40.5mm or 46.0mm spec, but most are blank, hence, no threads. Remember (or write down) the models with the filter spec, then go back and see if those are any your friend wants to get.

That 37mm fisheye will also fit any other manufacturer's camcorder with the same 37mm filter spec. If it is decided to get a camcorder with a different filter diameter spec, see if you can find a "step-up" or "step-down" ring to be an adapter.

How do I transfer video from the hard drive to the SD card on a JVC Everio GZ-MG630RU camcorder?
Q. I have a 2010 JVC Everio GZ-MG630RU camcorder. i recently bought a laptop with Win-7. i found out that Win-7 does not recognize my camcorder . My question is: how do i go about transferring the videos on my camcorders Hard Drive to the cameras mini SD card ?


A. Excerpt from Amazon.com. Read your manual and your question makes no sense. Why do you want to copy from HDD to SD when the camera doesn't seem to have an mini SD card?

Everio Features

All 2009 Everios make sharing and watching videos easier than ever. New for this year is the One Touch Export function that allows Everio videos to be imported into iTunes and loaded into an iPod or iPhone. All 2009 Everios also offer One Touch DVD burning and the One Touch Upload function that JVC introduced to users in 2008 as a new and convenient way to upload videos to YouTube.

To use any of the three functions, simply connect Everio to a PC using the supplied USB cable. Then, the user chooses one of three buttons on the Everio: UPLOAD, EXPORT, or DIRECT DVD. Pressing the button will launch the appropriate Windows PC application that comes bundled with Everio, and the user simply follows the simple on-screen prompts. With just a few mouse clicks the process of uploading to YouTube, exporting to iTunes, burning to disc or transferring to an external hard disk drive will be completed. For uploading to YouTube, the user can perform an in-camera edit of any length video to fit the 10-minute YouTube limit.

For disc based archiving, there is an alternative to using a PC. JVC offers the CU-VD50 Direct DVD Burner/Player as an option, which allows burning of Everio videos to a DVD disc without having to use a PC.

The new Everio MediaBrowser software supplied with all Everio models is a Windows application providing an easy-to-search calendar-type graphical interface for indexing and finding video files. Thumbnail images of recorded videos and stills are superimposed on the calendar so it�s easy to see when any scene was recorded. The Everio MediaBrowser also allows easy playback, simple cut editing, and "Decomotion" to spruce up recorded footage with animated graphics for upload to YouTube. It also supports Export to iTunes, Upload to YouTube, burning to disc or transferring to HDD.

Another new feature found on all Everio camcorders is Digest Playback, which offers an easy and entertaining way to check the content residing on Everio�s HDD or SD/SDHC card. The function automatically selects highlight scenes from among the recorded content using JVC�s proprietary algorithm and plays back what looks like a "coming attractions" trailer for a movie. Sixty minutes of footage is condensed into five minutes of highlight scenes.

Other Everio features have been enhanced for 2009. Laser Touch Operation has been updated to allow control of zooming and recording using either the Laser Touch scroll bar or buttons next to the LCD screen, as well as by the standard zoom lever and REC button. And as before, Laser Touch makes it easy to browse through thumbnail images of recorded scenes and access menu selection. Power-linked operation, long offered by JVC, goes a step further this year. Simply opening the LCD monitor automatically opens the built-in lens cover and powers up the camcorder. Closing the LCD also closes the lens cover and shuts down the power. With Quick Restart, recording can start in about one second after the LCD is re-opened.

In addition to performance and convenience, the 2009 Everio line offers plenty of style and shooting comfort. A new design features elegant curves, a silver-framed LCD and a comfortable angled grip with a new dual use strap. The strap can be used in the usual camcorder fashion, supporting the user�s hand when shooting, or it can be extended and used as a wrist strap like the type on most digital still cameras.

What is best camcorder I can buy for under $2,000?

Q. I would prefer not to spend in excess of $2,000. I would like a camera that can shoot in 1080. I'm going on vacation in a month and want to document my trip.

A. Not a fan of consumer, so called HD, crapcorders. If you care to look at other questions I explain why.

If this is your well-thought out choice, my advise is to get the cheapest HD camcorder that records at the maximum consumer data rate of about 11 gigs/hour and has the lens and features you like and understand. $400-$500 should do it. They will use the same H.264 compression and image quality as a $2000 camcorder.

This one is as good as any: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/camcorders/consumer_camcorders/vixia_hf_r21#Specifications

Your best format for quality image, is the HDV format, which used MiniDv tapes and requires a firewire connection to get it to your computer for editing, these cameras are about $1000.


And the bargain is the standard def MiniDv cameras. They have a frame size 1/6th the size of HD, but get more data, 13 gigs/hour. In editing, they can be up-converted to HD frame sizes and have better quality than native HD camcorders. This little guy is a very good camera, despite it's price point.


Or, up your budget to about $3500. This is the cheapest HD cam I would consider:

Best Film look Indie Camcorder for £2,000?
Q. Hy in looking to purchase a camcorder preferably HD for £2000 or $3000, and has decent compatibility with Macs
Hy in looking to purchase a camcorder preferably HD for £2000 or $3000, and has decent compatibility with Macs and shoulder mounted?

A. The list is pretty short... and they are "prosumer" cams.
Sony HDR-FX1000 (will require an XLR adapter for pro grade mics)
Sony HDR-FX7 (if you can find one; will also require an XLR adapter for pro grade mics)

Neither are shoulder mount - the only one that is shoulder mount is the Sony HVR-HD1000 and since that has consumer-sized lenses and imaging chips, it is not recomended (and also requires an XLR adapter for pro grade mics).

All three are MiniDV tape based - which means a firewire port on the computer is required. The MacBook Air and most recently released MacBooks do not have a firewire port - and no way to add one). The most recently released MacBook Pro has a firewire 800 port so a 4-pin to 9-pin firewire cable will be needed. ALL other Macs made in the last 10 years or so will use a 4-pin to 6-pin firewire 400 cable.

The Canon HV30 or Sony HDR-HC9 are consumer-grade cams with medium sized lenses and imaging chips and are not recommended due to potential poor low-light behavior - though the HV30 can do 24p better than the HC9 can. The Sony HVR-A1 falls into a similar boat (but it does have XLR audio connections).

As for shoulder mount, look into using a "SpiderBrace" or similar shoulder mount system. Using a LANC with this (presuming the camcorder has a LANC port) will be useful.

Don't spend your whole budget on the camera - you will need mics, maybe a XLR adapter (like those from BeachTek or juicedLink), lighting, tripod or other steadying device (SpiderBrace, camera crane, Steadicam/Glidecam device, etc...). I don't think relying totally on shoulder mount is a good idea.

You may be able to do quite well if you stay in standard definition... The Sony DCR-VX2100 and Panasonic DVX100b are both quite capable cameras (shoot in DV widescreen).
