JVC Everio GZ-MG21

Light and tiny; many hours of recording time.

My cold weather camcorder

 

First, let me preface this review by telling you why I went looking to buy a new camcorder in the first place.

small, good quality recording, good price, doesn't freeze up in cold environments

not terribly intuitive, provided software is useless

Because of it's cheap price (then) for new technology, I impulsively bought it. Which I should have known better. When buying a camcorder make sure you have the biggest lens. The biggest chip or CCD. And watch out for compression of how that info ...
