product just ok - using it is a nightmare

h., Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera to video my new born, and catch him in all his new stages. I now have a lot of video I can only view on my computer. It records ok in full sun and very badly in poor light. But the biggest problem is that all files are MOD files and most software will not recognize MOD, so you have to convert it. Now, I am not super techno savvy but I am not a dolt either, and I had a good deal of trouble managing this.

Small, Portable, Great If You Accept The Limitations

John M. Thomas "classfour", Amazon
13 January 2007
  • Summary: It does have excellent video quality - without the hassles transfering video that I've seen on my older dvdcam (card reader = video download) It doesn't shoot the quality of photos that my old Lumix will. Great for snapshots when you just need a portable camera and camcorder and just don't feel like packing two. Low light conditions have limitations, but similar to regular camcorders in darkness of video. No mount for external camcorder light.

Please be accurate with you information on the GZ-MC200

K. Lawley, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great camcorder. Ray Price is incorrect on the 4 gig limit as I am running a high speed 8 gig cf card and it works fine. I get 2 hours 9 minutes out of the card on ultra fine and about 30% less battery drain than the micro drive. I really like this camcorder.

Excellent! More than pleased... and still just as good as the newer, more expensive larger-capacity JVC models.

Robert Hebron "Avid reader", Amazon

  • Summary: Of course you've already read the con's about low light performance, but you can fix this by setting the "M" mode (manual) to "Cloudy" and selecting 1/30-1/60th shutter speed. I use 1/30th - and it's works like a charm. Honestly, anyone who complains about low-light problems must be referring to shooting in near total darkness because with 1 20 watt bulb in the room, the lighting is sufficient. It's true it gets warm...

Nearly perfect except in low light

G. A Wheeler "gramix", Amazon
24 December 2005
  • Summary: Pros: - Great video quality if the light is good - Great sound quality if the person shooting doesn't talk too loud - Great size - Massive convenience of not having to rip and encode video Cons: - Terrible (useless) video quality in low light - Cannot focus in low light (making even still photos with flash difficult) - Sensitive mike results in audio distortion is person shooting talks loudly - S-l-o-w cold start - No flash shoe or tripod mount The above pretty much sums...

Important tip for indoors shooting

A. Miller, Amazon
21 October 2005
  • Summary: Had this camera for a month, used it extensively in recent vacation. Bottom line it's a superb video camera. Video clips are very high quality with a lot of details and good colors; you just can't believe such great quality video came form this tiny camera. Its biggest selling point of quick PC transfer and fast DVD creation works extremely well.

Great All-Around Package

J. Sullivan "drA! designs", Amazon
18 October 2005
  • Summary: This is a great all-around camera. I would suggest that if you're going to spend the money, take a look at the step up--JVC Everio GZMC500 5 MP 3 CCD. The picture quality is great under good lighting conditions. The less light, the more grainy the image which is true of pretty much any camera that is in this price range. Lighting conditions also affect the auto-focus capabilities. I use this camera for video documentation and it works extremely well.

Very good camcorder with some issues

Tempuraki, Amazon
16 August 2005
  • Summary: I've had the GZ-MC200 for a couple of months. took it on a vacation to the far east, and overall i am very glad I made the purchase. Pros: - very high quality video and sound. - digital media makes video transfer to PC a snap. just take out the microdrive and plug it into a card reader. - high quality stills. not as good as a dedicated digital camera, but 4x6 prints still turn out nice. also, the 10x optical zoom is much more powerful than the usual point and shoot.
