Jazzed Up JVC Camcorder Hits a Few Sour Notes

 

It's a YouTube camera ... It's a camcorder made for uploading YouTube clips ... We think this cam will be great for sending videos to sites like YouTube.

35x optical zoom brings the action right to your doorstep. Superb video quality. Formula 1 start-up speed. Easy to use laser touch LCD

No optical image stabilization. Lack of Mac compatibility is inexcusable and utterly perplexing. Three hundred and fifty bones for a camera that's made to record for YouTube? The Flip Mino does the same thing for about half the cost

JVC Everio S GZ-MS100 Review

 

Admit it. You visit YouTube to watch talking cats, quickie news and video game items, music videos as well as ogling people around the world generally making fools of themselves. I do it too but haven't Broadcast Myself—until getting the new JVC Everio...

Lightweight; decent video quality; 35X optical zoom

Hardly a "One-Touch" upload to YouTube; feels flimsy; low-quality stills

There are many other less expensive gadgets that let you post to YouTube but quality is pretty weak.

So what does the MS100 have that these micro camcorders are missing? Aside from better-looking video, you get a lot more options. While Flip users are stuck with little more than an on/off button, the MS100 lets you brighten or darken the image, adjust...

If you’re only shooting for YouTube, you might be better off with the budget Flip Mino, but this Everio offers so much more, including a tasty zoom, good low-light shooting and surprisingly sharp video. A solid state bargain. JVC GZ-MS100EX is tagged...

A camcorder for YouTube

 

The compact and feature-packed Everio GZ-MS100 makes it easy to upload videos online.

Comfortable grip ; decent video quality ; uses SD card for storage, 35x optical zoom

Poor still image quality ; navigation buttons could be better

These issues aside, the camcorder was fun to use and the videos turned out good overall.

Product Specifications

Compact Everio S memory camcorder makes sharing simple. This elegant, slim, lightweight camcorder boasts a Konica Minolta lens, 35x optical zoom, laser touch operation and sharing videos over the Internet is now easier than ever with the one-button uploading to YouTube, the leading video sharing site. It looks strikingly similar to the popular stylish Everio G series hybrid cameras, but is smaller due to recording directly to a SD card. Everio S also has all the convenience Everio is famous for.
