Everio GZ series (flash) review


JVC's Everio GZ-MS100 is a compact, budget SD-card-based camcorder capitalizing on the trend of one-touch upload of video to the Internet; the big YouTube sticker on back of the camcorder's LCD and the YouTube branding on the box are kind of a...

Average standard-definition video quality for its class; manual controls; small, comfortable design.

Tricky menu navigation; polarizing interface; meager user guide; and questionable YouTube-friendliness.

The JVC Everio GZ-MS100 is an average budget SD-card-based camcorder that's more attractive for its small design and relatively average video quality than its unique interface and one-touch uploads to YouTube.

JVC Everio GZ-EX300


The Everio GZ-EX355 has a great combination of video recording quality and handy extras. Not many camcorders can top this full HD video camera in video quality, and the integrated Wi-Fi and memory save you the hassle included with other camcorders. You...

HD camcorder has one of the best battery lives ranked

The customer support options do not include live chat

The JVC GZ-EX355 features a long battery life, integrated memory and a built-in Wi-Fi. Not many things missing besides a live chat option from JVC's customer service department.

Highly arresting design, 60GB hard drive, MicroSD slot for additional recording, good video performance

Laser touch' operation needs significant refining, auto focus less zippy than we're used to

If you're on the lookout for a standard definition HDD camcorder, the GZ-MG465B is one of the more interesting options on the market. Provided you can get your head (and finger) around the unusual control interface, it won't disappoint.

If, for some reason, you don't want to go the whole HD route, then the JVC GZ-MG465 is one of the best SD camcorders around.

Images are excellent for standard-definition footage

Pricey for a non-High-Definition 'corder

Standard definition hard drive camcorder with 60GB of storage and SD slot, fronted by a 32x optical zoom and with a 2.7-inch widescreen monitor to frame with. There's a megapixel sensor inside. It measures 54x68 x113mm and weights 360g. The good First...

If you’ve got a prejudice against HD camcorders this SD model is about as good as you’ll find. Video and sound quality are perfectly acceptable. In fact, it’s the Kylie Minogue of camcorders: small, sexy and slightly out of date. JVC GZ-MG465 is tagged...

Great for my uses


As a pediatric therapist, I can't write and work, and reviewing with parents is quite helpful. I need basic but easy and reliable. I use my JVC MG465 to tape as I work, then review and write. It's smaller and less distracting that my old one and the...
