JVC Everio GZ-MG360

 

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.

Excellent Mom & Pop Camera

 

I read all the pros and cons from a lot of people, and had the opportunity to purchase a $1,300.00 Sony, that takes four megabite stills, and after looking at my Pentax K10d DSLR with my $5,000 lens and gagets, I figured that still photos were not that...

This camera has everything a simple beginner needs and then some! The 35X zoom and 60gig hard drive places film and DVD cams in the proverbial stone age. If you want CNN quality, and own a Mac...don't buy it, because if you do, Don't complain

Winey Mac owners, and picky people who can't adapt to camera nuances, and have difficulty getting to tiny connectors while waring heavy work gloves in the middle of winter at night! Go back and enjoy your Kodak Super eight's
