Before we even get started, let’s just say that the JVC Everio GZ-MC200 has a lot to offer. While it may not be the best option for independent videographers who are looking to make their own films, for the novice who is in need of the basics it does not get much better than the GZ-MC200. Before you buy this model you should definitely compare it with the competition, but even then there is a good chance that this one will come out on top.

Before we even get started, let’s just say that the JVC Everio GZ-MC200 has a lot to offer. While it may not be the best option for independent videographers who are looking to make their own films, for the novice who is in need of the basics it does not get much better than the GZ-MC200. Before you buy this model you should definitely compare it with the competition, but even then there is a good chance that this one will come out on top.

When it comes down to it, the biggest benefit of the GZ-MC200 may not have anything to do with the technical aspects of the model. Instead, it is the small compact design that many people are attracted to. This small design makes it easy for you to carry the GZ-MC200 with you while traveling, or simply in your pocket so that you never miss an important moment.

The GZ-MC200 captures digital video on a hard disk that is removable to make things convenient on the user. For a camcorder of such small proportions the video quality is amazingly good. You will not get the best in color and sharpness, but at the same time you will never have to give up too much as far as quality is concerned.

The only real downfall of the GZ-MC200 is the below average low light performance. While this can be somewhat of a pain in the neck, this model is not the only one suffering from this problem. Poor low light video quality is quite common among camcorders in this class.

Anybody who wants a compact, simple to use camcorder should consider what the JVC Everio GZ-MC200 has to offer. Although it is not perfect for every situation, if you are looking for a high quality capable performer this is the way to go.
