Expert review by: Jim Feeley (

JVC Everio GZ-X900 HD camcorder


The Everio GZ-X900's substandard low-light performance undercuts the camcorder's clever features and slick appearance

Attractive design, innovative user interface, handy YouTube upload tool

Sub par video performance; especially indoors, poor battery life, too expensive

The JVC Everio GZ-X900 is a decent high-definition camcorder let down by its poor low-light performance. There are plenty of better (and cheaper) options on the market.
