Summary: I receive this item very soon.It works,but there is not a usb cable.but,I think I can match it later.small,easy to carry.battery works good.display is bright.there is a 5% discount ,if I buy another device.It's good.
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

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

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.

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...
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.
Summary: The Verio GZMC200 is a great, almost PROSUMER level mini cam. PROS: Super video quality, highly sensitive built in stereo mic with wind cut, built in flash, ultra compact size. 2MB Still capability is very good for daytime shooting. Included 4GB Micro Drive. The fact that the camera accepts two different kinds of media is also a great thing. You can record your movies on the included 4GB Micro Drive while saving your still images to an SD Card.
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.
Summary: I have had this camera for 2 weeks now and i am loving it. On my 27inch TV the video quality rivals Hollywood. On the highest quality setting you can shoot 60 min of video, and the battery(cell phone size) only last 60 min before needing recharged so you really have no reason to shoot at any less quality video. The software package is great.
