JVC Everio GZ-MG300 review

 

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.

JVC GZ-MG330 Camcorder Review

 

The JVC Everio GZ-MG330 ($449 MSRP) is a standard definition hard drive camcorder for those seeking a higher capacity than the card-only alternatives. With many of the same internal components as the JVC GZ-MS100, the MG330 follows up with the same...

Review: JVC Everio GZ-MG330

 

Pros: Small size. Sturdy. Zoom. Records to 30 GB hard drive. Affordable. Cons: Light balance in low light a bit yellow in automatic. Not HD. The JVC Everio GZ-MG330 is all about simple and easy. It's not much bigger than my fist and packs in a 30...

JVC GZ-MG330

 

The JVC Everio GZ-MG330 is a standard definition hard drive camcorder for those seeking something compact, but with a higher capacity than the memory card-only models. With many of the same internal components as the JVC GZ-MS100, the MG330 follows up...

The star of the show is JVC's new Laser Touch system: a collection of touch-sensitive buttons that replace the traditional joystick as a means for navigating the menus. It takes time to get used to the system, but once you do it's fun and satisfying to...

Camcorder Review: JVC Everio GZ-MG330 Hybrid Camcorder

 

The GZ-MG330 sets its crosshairs precisely at the entry-level user. Its small size, low price and color options will most likely appeal to the family reunion shooter or to the non-technical members of Generation-Y who want to link their YouTube clips...

Powerful zoom Compact Flexibility of hard drive storage

Menu system / Laser Touch No mic input

Simple camera for the very budget conscious. Lacks many features an advanced user would want.

JVC Everio GZ-MG330 Review and Prices

 

The JVC GZ-MG330 features a smaller, lighter body than previous Everio units along with a choice of three stylish colors. It is the entry level unit in JVC's recent line of five Everio HDD DV camcorders. Clearly, JVC is aiming to make this unit as much...

Excellent storage capacity; small and light; choice of colors; innovative laser touch operation

Average video performance in good lighting; poor low light performance

First Looks: JVC Everio GZ-MG330 Camcorder

 

Small enough to fit in your palm, JVC's Everio GZ-MG330 is a lightweight camcorder that's really, well, handy.

The JVC Everio GZ-MG330 is definitely a handy little camcorder that's easy to use and bring with you. It's not a workhorse though, due to its average image resolution. If you're keen on shooting quality videos, perhaps the latest HD hard drive based...

JVC Everio GZ-MG330

 

It may be available in a variety of colours, but JVC's Everio GZ-MG330 isn't just a fashion accessory.

JVC GZ-MG330 review

 

We reckon the new Everio line-up could be the best selection yet

Lightweight and compact ; Attractively styled ; Easy to use

Basic feature set ; 30GB HDD

The best we’ve seen from standard-definition Everios. It’s taken a while but this cam really proves HDD’s dominance in the family cam/budget market. There are other models further up the range, but if you want something cheap that does the business,...
