Question about Video Cameras

1 Answer

Videos with my JVC GZ-HD30 camera are very shaky

The colors and definitions are good but the result is unstable and shaky. I'm not knew at taking video but it is the first time I have that problem. Normally with my other camcorders (all Sony) there is a built in stabilizer. I suppose I have not set my JVC properly. Before recording, I selected the AVCHD format and I used the Start/Stop video recording button situated on the right of the battery. When I checked on the led screen just after recording, everything seemed fine an I could not wait to view the videos on my computer screen. However, when I played them using Power Cinema NE for Everio, I was extremely disapointed. I must be doing something wrong. I searched the Net but did not find anyone with the same problem. I really appreciate the fact you share your expertise with those who need assistance.

    I have the same problem. Looks good on the LCD screen. Video footage very shaky and ghosts when played back on the Everio program. It's terrible. Very disappointed.

    Exactly same situation. Video looks good on the LCD, but when I download it to my PC it looks like video from a $99 flash video recorder. This is the first forum that has addressed this problem.

I can't even use this PowerCinema NE for Everio program to display my AVCHD videos taken from my GZ-HD30. But what I have been using is PowerDVD that came with the same bundled software. If you copy the exact folder of your AVCHD directory from your high-def camcorder to your PC, it should play that beautifully, better than Panasonic's HD Writer. To play those videos on PowerDVD, just click that little icon at the bottom that says "SELECT SOURCE, then click "Open movie file on hard disk drive" and choose that AVCHD folder that contains your videos. Remember, it only plays if your AVCHD folder contains all the sud-directories in the same pattern as what you see in the camcorder hard drive. My other Panasonic HD camcorder's software also works in the same pattern. It must be the format AVCHD softwares only recognize.

Recording daily life and interesting things with a HD camcorder becomes a trend for our people. They like to share these digital camcorder videos on Mac or PC with family and friends. However, selecting a good digital camcorder for Mac is not easy for green hand. Maybe more tips need paying attention, for example, the types of your camcorder and Mac, the version of iMovie on Mac, Mac and PC compability with digital camcorder and so on.

iMovie has been a Mac OS X only application bundled in the iLife suite of Macintosh applications since iMovie3. From 2007 to 2010, Apple developed iMovie to iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09, and iMovie for iPhone and iPod Touch. Luckily, iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 are designed to work with a wide range of digital video devices and formats, including tape-based(use a FireWire cable, also known as IEEE 1394 or i.Link) and the latest tapeless camcorders that record to flash memory, a hard disk drive(HDD), or DVD media.

A list of Digital Camcorders Compatible with iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 on Mac OS X
NTSC Camcorders(a video format used in North America, Central America, Japan, and parts of South America)
Canon: DC20, DC50, DC220, DC230, FS10, FS11, FS100, HF10, HF11, HF100, HG10, HG20, HG21, HR10.

Although iMovie' 08, iMovie' 09 on Mac OS work with most of HD digital camcorders using MPEG-2 (standard definition), MPEG-4, AVCHD, and H.264 formats, not all tapeless camcorders are compatible with iMovie' 08, iMovie '09 because of the wide range of media types and the different ways manufacturers store video on these media types.

I have a JVC GZ-HD300 Hard disc video camera and when using Everio Mediabrowser which comes with the camera download to convert my videos the conversion leaves the finished video blurred


Hi.

If the original footage was sharp, that means that you are probably using wrong compression parameter or format on Everio, while doing conversion.

If the source movie was blurred instead, try using the Advanced Image Stabilisation option, usually available in new JVC HD camcorder menu.

Everio has different quality settings. Each time you increase compression you lower quality.

Also ensure that the camera was not in a low definition setting.

Regards.


Ginko.

I need mac software for my jvc everio gz-mg360bu camera.


There is a chance that you will be able to get back some or all of your digital videos from your JVC camcorder based on your Macintosh.

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos with the memory card or stick that you want to recover videos from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of video recovery.

Quick Internet searches will reveal a tremendous number of Mac recovery programs. Here are some for your reference(there is no freeware I suppose)

Data Recovery (from Mac Update)

Caution - Do NOT try & write anything back to the memory card of stick until you can recover your videos safely!

Download cd's for jvc gz-mc100


this camera doesn't come with software to transfer videos. Just plug your camera (or insert the cf card, on a card reader) and copy your videos to your pc. you can use the image import feature on windows to do the job (but don't delete the videos with your pc. If you do the camera will state a error)

hope it helps
