Ease of Use

The good: 1) Shipped with a class 4 SD card. 2) Nice quality video at high brightness. The bad: 1) Poor quality (high pixelated and color-patched) video at medium and low brightness levels. 2) Jerky playback of original video on computer (requires a lot of CPU to playback video until converted to WMV format).

Product Overview

The Everio GZ-HM300BUS is an elegant Full HD memory Everio with dual SD card slot for seamless recording featuring Advanced Image Stabilizer, records digital stills up to 1920x1080 and has unique shooting functions.


Everio MediaBrowser - Integrated PC Software Included
All Everio models come with high-value software that provides everything from file playback, management, as well as easy sharing functions, within a single application. Its calendar type graphical user interface displays thumbnail images of your recordings, superimposed on the date they were taken.


Advanced Image Stabilizer
Great improvement on New Everio is its anti-shake performance. A new technology called Advanced Image Stabilizer expands the effective area at wide angle to 4 times that of 2009 models, delivering powerful compensation for camera shake. You can enjoy stable results even if you're trotting alongside your subject.

Super LoLux
Low light performance is one of the key factors for quality video. New Everio's Super LoLux ensures superior sensitivity to low light. To provide this, High Definition models (selected) are equipped with a Back-illuminated CMOS sensor that allows intake of more light while Standard Definition models offer a large 1/6" high-sensitivity CCD.

Time-Lapse REC
Various unique shooting functions are equipped on New Everio. Time-Lapse REC records one frame at a time at set intervals (1sec.-80sec.). So you can watch an hour-long movement in just a short amount of time when played back. It's great when you want to observe an event that takes place over a long period of time, or to record unique-looking scenes in a creative way.

Auto REC
Another unique function is Auto REC. When a subject enters the detecting area and the luminance changes, recording starts automatically. Recording continues as long as there is movement within the area and automatically stops after 5 seconds of no movement. You can use it like a surveillance camera, or to observe something. Discover new ways to use the camera.

45x Dynamic Zoom
Standard Definition Everio features the Dynamic Zoom function which uses nearly all of the effective pixels of the CCD to achieve incredible magnification. You can enjoy up to 45x zoom without any degradation of picture quality. Its high-quality lens is a KONICA MINOLTA LENS developed for Everio by the camera specialists.

One-Touch Sharing Button on the Camera
Some models are equipped with "UPLOAD/EXPORT" button on the main unit. When connected with a PC, press this button to start data conversion and upload the file to YouTube™ or export the file to your iTunes® library.

Digital Still Images
Every Everio can conveniently record digital still images. Just switch to the image mode and then press the snapshot button. Record your snapshot to either the Built in Memory or a SD card. It's your choice. The snapshot will record up to 1920 x 1080.
