Beautiful Harvest Moon with the GZ-HM650 Optical 40x Zoom!

Capturing the moon is supposedly very difficult for a novice. Using standard Auto Mode, the moon usually turns up white and out-of-focus, but if you understand the important points, it is possible to capture it beautifully. For this outing I used the industry-leading Optical 40x Zoom equipped GZ-HM650 to capture a beautiful autumn full moon.

Everio Video Hunters! Have Fun Shooting Candles with Telemacro and Time-Lapse REC!

Hello. Eri here.
Continuing on from last week, I'll be discussing low light candle captures using the GZ-HM650.
I felt a great response from the high-sensitivity Everio, equipped with its Back-illuminated CMOS Sensor, when I managed to get a clear shot of a dark scene, lit only by candles. After that, I wondered whether shooting with Time-Lapse REC and telemacro would go just as smoothly. ...So I tried it right away!

I'm shooting with the GZ-HM650 model this time, too.

Everio Video Hunters! Candlelight Low Light Shooting with the High-Sensitivity Everio!

This time I'm going to use the GZ-HM650, the high-sensitivity Everio that's great with low lighting, to try my hand at candlelight shooting.

Everio Video Hunters! Early Spring Tidings from the Plum Blossoms

The plum tree is said to have been brought to Japan from China for medicinal purposes around the 8th century. The delicate flowers that bloom on the winter-bare branches subsequently began to see active use in classical Japanese poems, and became beloved by many people.
Plum blossoms can be divided into two rough categories: white and red. However, there are many varieties of branch arrangements and flowers.
Plum trees bloom in the cold wind of winter, long before cherry trees, seeming to tell us that a new spring is just around the corner. I went hunting for that early spring color with the new Everio GZ-HM650. Here's news of the flowers from me, Boss.

Everio Video Hunters! Testing the New Everios’ Zoom Function from Tokyo Tower! – Part 1

Hello, this is Ayako. Has everyone seen the new Everios?
When shopping for a camcorder, I think lots of people prioritize the zoom function. Well, among the 2011 Everios, there are models that come equipped with an optical 40x zoom (digital 200x), the best in the industry*. For many people, it's probably difficult to visualize what a 40x zoom can really do. To that end, over two weeks, I'll be testing the new Everios' zoom function from Tokyo Tower's Main Observatory!
