Price Value

The JVC Everio GZ-EX300 series offer camcorders that are comfortably priced even though they have the latest technologies integrated in them. There can be some changes in the specifications in each of the products and the price can vary accordingly. With the kind of specifications that these camcorders have, the cost is quite affordable as compared to other brands in the market with similar specifications. As there is a long battery life, the worth of the camcorders also increases.

Video & Image Quality

The video and images are impressively attractive and have a touch of finesse. The products in this series offer full HD videos at 1920x1080 pixels resolution. The recording takes place at 24Mbps. The output of the videos is at 1080/60p. It is possible to record AVCHD. Standard definition dual format recording is also possible. These facilities allow the gizmo to produce videos that can be broadcast in TV or put on the web. Still images can be clicked with an image size of up to 10MP. A specialty of Everio series, the camcorders of this type are aided with the Super LoLux technology. Along with the sensitive sensor, the camcorder can pick videos in the dark – say underwater, where dim sunlight reaches. The result is aesthetically pleasing as the images have more-or-less no noise. The images are distinct with sharp edges. Color distortions are also not visible. The image stabilizer mode does not allow videos to get distorted while walking. The Intelligent Auto mode allows the camcorder to pick the right shutter speed and aperture value when the videographer uses his own shooting settings. The camcorder supports Face Detection, time-lapse REC option where one frame is recorded in an interval of 1 second to 80 seconds. This allows watching a long movement quickly. One can opt for Food Mode and Baby Mode option too. The versatile camcorder supports Everio Media browser tool and iMovie or Final Cut Pro X. The audio supports K2 record and auto wind cut features.


The beautiful cylindrical camcorder is lightweight and compact.  It is designed in a way to allow the fingers of the user to access relevant buttons on the gizmo. Available in three colors, red, blue, and black, the camcorder is Quad-proof. This signifies that the product is all-weather proof. It is water-proof with a certified capacity of remaining 30 minutes underwater at 5 meters’ depth. It is also dust-proof and freeze-proof. The gizmo can also withstand minor drops and external shocks. The 3-inch touchscreen can be seamlessly angled away from the main body to allow the user to check the video that is being recorded.

Customer support

Just like any prestigious company, JVC offers a comprehensive support to buyers or potential buyers of the camcorders. Users need to visit the company’s helpdesk to get valuable help. In case of a repair, the gizmo can be deposited at the company’s repair service center. The website gives adequate information on the status of the camcorder. But, surprisingly one may not get an opportunity for a live chat. Nevertheless, the products under this series can be tagged as ‘best buy’ due to the modest price is offers.
