JVC has added a new high definition camcorder to its collection of Everio Series, The new Everio GZ-HM340. This latest electronic gadget features a 20x optical Konica Minolta zoom lens, 1.37 megapixel CMOS sensor, 16GB of internal flash memory plus an SD/SDHC card slot. It is also equipped with advanced technology including image stabilization, one-touch upload to YouTube, face detection, advancements in low light capabilities, auto recording feature, time lapse recording, Face Flow Thumbnail, which displays thumbnails of your videos by using human faces automatically cropped from sections of your video, and Advanced Image Stabilizer (A.I.S) that ensures steady images even while walking, and is especially effective when shooting bright scenes from full wide to 5x zoom. For only $499.95, I think this camera is definitely worth the buy. It will be available later this month.
