New Laser Touch Operation
An evolved version of our previous Laser Touch Operation, this system now allows Zooming and Recording using either the Laser Touch or standard zoom lever and REC button. Of course, browsing through indexes and menu selections is easy as ever.
Auto Power ON/OFF & Auto Lens Cover
With Everio, you don't have to use the power switch each time you operate because the power is linked to the LCD's opening and closing. Just open the LCD; the power turns on and the lens cover automatically opens. Just close the LCD to power off and close the lens cover too.
In combination with Auto Power ON, you're ready to shoot in about 1 second when the LCD is re-opened. Never miss a crucial moment.
35x Optical Zoom & Dynamic Zoom
35x optical zoom for incredible magnification with full optical quality. The Megapixel Everio G model even features the Dynamic Zoom function which uses nearly all of the effective pixels of the CCD to achieve zoom magnification up to 38x without any degradation of picture quality.
HD Gigabrid Premium Engine
In addition to advanced image processing to optimise picture quality, this chip also helps reduce power consumption by 30% compared to previous Everio models, and enables approx. 2.5x faster creation of DVD/AVCHD DVD discs.
HD Upconvert (selected models)
Certain high-end models in the Standard Definition Everio lineup are equipped with an HDMI™ mini terminal capable of outputting 1920x1080P up-converted video. You can enjoy video playback on an HDTV.*
This function automatically selects highlight scenes from among the recorded content using our proprietary algorithm and plays back what looks like a “coming attractions” trailer for a movie. 60 minutes of footage is condensed into 5 minutes of highlight scene.
Convenient 2-Way Strap
You can use it as either a grip belt or a wrist strap, whichever suits the occasion. When not in use, it fits snugly against the body to minimise storage space.
Everio Dock for Instant Connection (GZ-MG645)
Convenient docking cradle comes provided with GZ-MG645. All-in-one interface for easy viewing, charging and sharing.
Your Choice of Storage Media
Built-in Hard Disk Drive
Hard Disk-type Everio models have a built-in high-capacity Hard Disk Drive ranging from 60GB to 120GB (differs by model). In the case of Standard Definition Everio, the 120GB HDD will allow up to 150 hours of recording. There's also a microSD/SDHC Card slot for additional storage and easy data transfer.
World's First Dual SD Card Slot*
Memory-type Everio features dual slots for SD/SDHC Card.** Readily available and cost-efficient, you can insert two 32GB for up to 80 hours*** of recording with a minimal investment. There's also a dual-storage hybrid model equipped with a single SD Card slot and internal 16GB flash memory. Data transfer between two media is possible.
Dual Memory Continuous Recording
With a dual memory type Everio, when one recording media fills up during recording, it automatically switches to the second media and resumes recording. There is no need to reload or reset.
Note: There is a pause of a few seconds as the media switches over.
