The editors didn't like

  • Small-time zoom. Too much picture fizz. The price
  • Weak optical zoom
  • Pricey
  • Microphone in an unusual position
  • Touchscreen can be tricky
  • Expensive
  • Fiddly menu system
  • Only 5x optical zoom
  • The 5x zoom is barely enough to make your next door neighbour’s windows
  • Let alone sneak glimpses of their saucy German exchange student – and the 200x digital zoom is certainly no substitute. On the plus side
  • The Laser Touch interface lets y...

  • Abstract:  The X900 is a top-of-the-market fun camera for amateurs, with entertaining features such as slow-motion shooting and high-speed “motor drive”-style stills. You'd struggle to shoot a TV documentary on it, but for great family films and photos that look goo...

  • The JVC Everio x GZ-X900 delivers subpar overall performance, and it is definitely a poor option if you plan to shoot in less-than-optimal lighting conditions. Jim Feeley Lowest online price: N/A ...

  • The Everio is probably the only camcorder out there that genuinely lets you leave your point-and-shoot camera at home. But for this kind of money, you could buy a decent camcorder and a great camera, and have enough money left over for that external ha...

  • Abstract:  JVC has gone for the compact look (and weight) with the new X900, using SD storage, a bigger and more powerful CMOS sensor, improved optical image stabilization and high quality HD images. The controls are still irritating, though, and the price might...

  • Good picture quality; three slow-motion modes; effective optical image stabiliser; unusual but appealing design
  • Expensive; fiddly menu system; only 5x optical zoom
  • The JVC Everio GZ-X900 is a slim, light and handsome camcorder that doubles up as a very decent camera. At the top settings, video and still-image quality are both good, but, while the slow-motion modes and unique optical image stabiliser are interest...

  • Abstract:  JVCs GZ-X900 represents a considerable departure from the smooth, rounded looks of the Everio hard disk and solid-state camcorders that have helped to revolutionise home video in the past few years. The customary curves and glossy body finish have bee...

  Published: 2009-04-25, Author: James , review by: trustedreviews.com

  • As with pretty much every camcorder released so far in 2009, our pronouncement on the Everio GZ-X900 falls back to price. If it had been pitched at £700 or less, this would be an absolutely storming buy. But at more like £900, the X900 costs more than las...
