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: 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.
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.
Summary: I have owned this unit for 1 week now, and it has lived up to my expectations. First of all, it's all about the 4 gig microdrive! No more tapes, no more spinning DVDs, the microdrive IS the future! The fact that it's in the CompactFlash format makes this camera future-proof: When 40 gig microdrives that run for $100 come out, this camera can take it. When 8 gig solid-state CompactFlash comes out, this camer can take it.
Summary: I just pre-ordered the first hard drive-based camcorder, the JVC Everio GZ-MC200, after reading a full review in today's New York Times (11/25/04, available online for 30 days). The reviewer liked this over the smaller version, the MC100, and the price difference on Amazon makes the MC200 a better buy. The Times review mentioned excellent video quality (and 2MP stills) and ease of use. I'll come back with my own hands-on review after I get mine from Amazon.
Excerpt: "...Francisco I decided that the JVC GZ-MC200 was looking the favourite as it was pocket sized (OK a coat pocket but compared to my current camera it was brilliant). I almost brought the camera in the states but the retailer wanted cash, so I walked away. ~~~~~~~~~~~The Purchase~~~~~~~~~~~ On my return to the UK the internet was sparked into life and a number of searches for the camera were undertaken, this returned prices ranging from an astronomical ...
