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.
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...
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.
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.
Summary: This is a great product so long as you know that you are buying a product that is likely to increase in quality and lower in cost quickly. The camera lives up to the claims made by JVC, nothing wrong there.
Summary: While there is much I really like about this camera, its short comings prevent me from recommending it to people who want just one video camera. The problems I am experiencing deal mostly with the camera's POOR performance in medium to low light conditions.
Summary: Pluses are obvious - slap the CF card in your PC reader and you can instantly start editing, converting, and/or burning the video to DVD. Much more convenient than (ugh) in-camera DV capture with a regular DV video camera. The accompanying software package is a perfect match for this camera.
Excerpt: Very good camera ease of use is fantastic the body twists from the hand hold part. sound quality is ok but no the best focus is good but is very unstable zoomed in at a distant object As above like bigger camera's there is no strap to slip your hand in to hold the camera so after time your hand...
Pros: Small light easy to use
Cons: No strap to hand hold . some buttons feel cheap
Summary: If you find it cheap (less than £400) like I did, definitely a worthy buy and opens up a whole new amateur creative field.
Pros: Tiny, using microdrive (or SD card) which creates individual movie files and makes it very easy to import and edit (tip: the .MOD files it creates are actually MPEG files. Just rename the .MOD extension to .MPG and it works perfectly).
Cons: Low light isn't great and the lag in turning it on can be a little frustrating given the battery life
Summary: Oooh, you can tell I like this one. I finally got a camcorder to archive my antics and for memory sometime when I'm old [if I'm lucky] and I had to get one that would go the distance and be spot on with technologies and all.
Pros: It's compact and it does what it's supposed to
Cons: Its price is out of this world [but the catch is I got brand new it on eBay for £295!]
