Capturing now and sharing it now. That’s just the beginning. Sharing now
with future audiences requires quality and presence that stand the test of time.

Real Quality
with Real Meaning.
Super LoLux
Low light performance is one of the key factors for quality
video. Everio’s Super LoLux ensures superior sensitivity to low
light. With a Back-illuminated CMOS sensor (on select
models), you can capture clear images with precise colours
even in low light. No worry while indoors or in dark situations.

Advanced Image Stabiliser*
Camera-shake compensation is another important feature
of a video camera. Our Advanced Image Stabiliser (A.I.S.)
expands the effective area at wide angle, delivering powerful
compensation for camera shake. Now, you can enjoy stable
results even if you’re trotting alongside your subject.
*Especially effective when shooting bright scenes at wide angle
A.I.S. Off
A.I.S. On
HD/SD Dual Format Recording
Record in AVCHD Full HD* if you want to watch the
results on an HDTV or burn 1920 x 1080 resolution
videos to a Blu-ray disc or DVD. In addition you can
record in Standard Definition to edit 720 x 576
resolution videos for longer recording times, burn to
standard DVD and share with people who haven’t
upgraded to HDTV yet. Remember HD for higher
quality recordings or SD for broad compatibility and
longer recording time — the choice is yours.
*Except GZ-MS150. GZ-HM30 instead offers AVCHD Lite for 1280 x 720 HD recording.

2-Way Grip Belt
The newly designed belt works both ways — as a standard grip belt or a
convenient wrist strap. You can choose which way, to best match your style
of shooting or carrying at any time.
40x Optical / 70x Dynamic Zoom
When recording in HD, you get up to 40x optical zoom — the
industry’s highest level. When recording in Standard Definition,
the Dynamic Zoom function uses nearly all of the effective pixels

of the CMOS to achieve up to 70x magnification without any
degradation of picture quality.
Auto Illumi. Light / Auto Flash
Auto Illumi. Light (equipped on selected models) turns on
automatically so you can shoot brilliant videos even in low

make your memories look extra special.
It’s a great way to take group shots filled with smiling faces.
Time-Lapse REC
Time-Lapse REC records one frame at a time at set intervals (1sec.–80sec.).
So you can watch movement that’s hours long in just a few seconds 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.
Face Sub-Window
Touch on a face on the LCD screen, and that face is automatically shown
enlarged in a corner of the screen. So you can record both a group shot and
a close-up of someone at the same time!
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.
