Expert review by : Denny Atkin (

Image quality


JVC Everio GZ-MG20

Stores tons of video; excellent zoom reach; very small.

Terrible battery life; mediocre video quality; grainy low-light footage; requires a computer or stand-alone DVD burner.

Though the short battery life and mediocre image quality are frustrating, the JVC Everio GZ-MG20U's amazing recording capacity and tiny size still make it an enticing device.
