JVC has announced their latest camcorder, the new Everio GZ-HM340, a little late, priced at $499.95 . It was originally expected to arrive in late January. The new camcorder packs 16Gb of onboard storage, and as if that were not enough, you can expand it with an SD/SDHC card. More details follow.

The HM340 has 20x optical zoom, a 1/5.8-inch 1.37 megapixel CMOS sensor along with a new image stabilizing system. The new time-lapse recording mode has options ranging from every second to every 80 seconds, along with an auto-shooting option which starts recording only when movement is detected. Also present is a face detection, and a Face Flow Thumbnail preview systems which splits clip timelines up by the individuals featuring in each. Both HD and SD video recording is supported. The lens used is one of the world’s smallest and slimmest HD lenses.

JVC also throws in a copy of their easy-upload app for windows which makes it simple to upload the videos to Youtube. Files can also be directly exported to iTunes® and synced with an iPod® or iPhone®, or burned to DVD, all with just a few mouse clicks using the Everio MediaBrowser application. The Everio GZ-HM340 will be available later this month for $499.95.
