JVC Everio GZ-MG630

 

JVC Everio GZ-MG630 with 60 GB of storage is an awesome, compact alternative to the end camcorder. The model comes in Blue, silver, and red and weighs in at a mere 11 ounces. The camera also has very convenient 2.7 inch LCD viewfinder.

Consumers appreciated the sensor upgrade as well as the large capacity of the HDD. They also commented on how compact the camera was and the ability to take it anywhere

AMAZING ZOOM! And an amazing camcorder! Very good!

 

This is an amazing camcorder! If it wasent for the odd format, it would be a perfect 5-star. The price is a great deal if you are looking for a decent quality camera that has a hard drive and a light. oh and I ran out of room to say that there is also...

Zooms in to amazing distances (i used it in a stadium and could read the seat numbers of the rows on the other side!) ; The picture and video quality is good ; The drop detection works great ; Rapid-shot ; Built-in light and lens cover ; Touch controls

The video format is very strange (.mod) ; Youtube (and many other things) wont recognize that the video is in widescreen so it looks distorted ; Hard to see screen in sun ; Very shakey when zoomed in

Consumer review by:

its a great little camera. I love it.

 

small size and ease of operation are great. Clear picture and sound and especially when I se the aspect ratio to 4:3, you do not see black bars at the side of the picture when viewing on my TV. I had bought another camera and no matter what you set the...

small size, red colour, easy operation,no touch screen - no fingerprints on screen, clear picture, good sound, good colour and zoom and price.Lots of recording time on hard drive.If you use aspect ratio 4:3, you do not see black bars when viewing

I wish you could manually open the lens cover so that you could clean the lens. I got a speck of dirt/sand and the speck shows up in all my pictures. I think I will have to turn the camera on so that the cap opens and then I can clean the lens

More features then I expected

 

I would recommend this camera for anyone looking for ease of use with a very good outcome. It isn't the best camera in the world, but for the price it's really good.

I didn't realize when reding how many features it actually had. The quality of video is great and easy to upload from the camcorder. I also the being able to take still pictures from a video I have already shot. Small and really light

I wish there was a night vision option and low light abiltiy could be a bit better, but its still pretty good

AWFUL VIDEO QUALITY AND NO DIS FOR STILLS

 

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS CAMCORDER, THERE ARE MANY GREAT CHOICES ON THE MARKET AND THIS ONE IS PERHAPS THE WORSE THING I'VE EVER OWNED. IF YOU GAVE ME THIS CAMCORDER FREE, I STILL WOULD NOT USE IT. HORRID. I PURCAHSED THIS BECAUSE WALMART USERS GAVE IT 5...

NICE COLOR

SOFTWARE DIFFICULT TO USE. VIDEO QUALITY IS SO POOR, IT WAS A WASTE OF TIME FILMING. STILL IMAGES WASHED OUT, COLORLESS AND SO BAD, IT WAS WASTE TAKING THEM TOO

Consumer review by:

I would say this camcorder is very good.

 

It is a good, affordable, compact little camcorder, perfect for travelling and capturing most moments in good light. It fits comfortably in your hand and it light to carry. This would be good for the average user and is very easy to use and figure out....

I like the look and compact size and bright, wide angle screen. The video quality looks good but doesn't show up as well in darker conditions. The little light it has helps but not much. I like that it turns on quickly when you open the screen

I couldn't find anything to control the volume and it didn't seem to pick up sound well unless it was loud and right near the mic. There doesn't appear to be anything that lets you edit the video but maybe all hard drive camcorders are like that
