 JVC's Everio GZ-HM450 is a mid-range high-definition camcorder, the fourth standard model in the 2011 Everio lineup. Its features are identical to the GZ-HM440 save the one main difference that it has 8GB of internal flash storage. It also has a slot for an SD card, to expand capacity if desired. Other features are the same, including a Konica Minolta HD lens with 40x optical zoom, image stabilization, face recognition and automatic shooting modes. The side-mounted display is also a touchscreen and measures 2.7 inches. Bundled software is compatible with Windows and facilitates media browsing. This is the least expensive 2011 Everio that includes both onboard storage and full (not upscaled) HD playback. An expected price difference of around $50 separates this from the GZ-HM440.
