Preiswerter Festplatten-Camcorder: JVC Everio GZ-MG330

 

Ein fairer Preis und eine hervorragende Performance machen den JVC Everio GZ-MG330 zu einem attraktiven Angebot. Wer keine Aufnahmen in HD-Auflösung machen will, ist mit diesem SD-Modell sehr gut bedient.

gute Aufnahmequalität, hervorragender, 35-facher optischer Zoom, fairer Preis, einfach zu bedienen

JVC Everio GZ-MG330 ( 30GB, Red)

 

With long recording times and convenient operation, hard-disk-based camcorders are quite tempting, especially when coupled with the relatively low prices for standard-definition models. That's true of the lowest-end camcorders in JVC's veteran Everio G...

Attractive price; compact design; holds hours of video.

No eye-level viewfinder, mic input, or headphone jack; persistent video compression artifacts.

The near-identical models of the JVC Everio GZ-MG300 series--the MG330, MG335, MG360 and MG365--are budget-priced, hard-drive-based camcorders that are nice enough, but produce typical low-budget video.

Pros: Small size. Sturdy. Zoom. Records to 30 GB hard drive. Affordable. Cons: Light balance in low light a bit yellow in automatic. Not HD. The JVC Everio GZ-MG330 is all about simple and easy. It's not much bigger than my fist and packs in a 30...

The star of the show is JVC's new Laser Touch system: a collection of touch-sensitive buttons that replace the traditional joystick as a means for navigating the menus. It takes time to get used to the system, but once you do it's fun and satisfying to...

Camcorder Review: JVC Everio GZ-MG330 Hybrid Camcorder

 

The GZ-MG330 sets its crosshairs precisely at the entry-level user. Its small size, low price and color options will most likely appeal to the family reunion shooter or to the non-technical members of Generation-Y who want to link their YouTube clips...

Powerful zoom Compact Flexibility of hard drive storage

Menu system / Laser Touch No mic input

Simple camera for the very budget conscious. Lacks many features an advanced user would want.
