Features, specifications and video test of the cheap JVC Everio GZ-HM445 HD camcorder

Today at our consumer blog I am going to review the affordable JVC Everio GZ-HM445 HD camcorder. Currently this is one of the cheapest HD camcorders (if not the cheapest) offered from JVC who are usually known for their high-quality camcorders.

The reason for the low price of the Everio GZ-HM445 is that it is on the market for quite some time and now there are much more capable devices. Anyways the JVC Everio GZ-HM445 has plenty to offer to those who will prefer it over a cheap Samsung HD camcorder.
Here are the main specifications of the JVC Everio GZ-HM445:
- Auto and manual focus
- 2.7-inch LCD touch screen

The Everio GZ-HM445 performs very well in different conditions and delivers good video quality in 1080p. Here is a sample video test recorded with this cheap camera.

As I already mentioned the JVC Everio GZ-HM445 is a cheap HD camcorder and the price is its biggest advantage. Currently you can find it for around £100 (in UK) which is a very good deal, especially for a quality product like this one.

So this was my short review of the JVC Everio GZ-HM445 cheap HD camcorder, it is a good budget cam and I strongly recommend it.
