The JVC Everio GZ-HM400 is a handheld, consumer-level camcorder released by JVC in 2009. It sports many ongoing trends like 1920x1080 high bit-rate recording, 32GB of built-in memory, an SD/SDHC card slot, and a 10.3-megapixel CMOS sensor that can capture 5.3MP JPEG still photos. But it is especially geared for sports enthusiasts, as it can high-speed record events at up to 600fps for slow-motion playback at a later time. Included also is a plethora of advanced image rendering technology like an Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) that corrects camera shake; Face Detection technology that can identify up to 16 faces; and a KONICA MINOLTA HD LENS that ensures superior-quality image capturing. Note that the JVC Everio GZ-HM400 also allows users to quickly upload videos to YouTube and/or an iTunes Library with a simple One Touch Export function.
