MOD format is a pain

  • Summary: This is an expensive camcorder. But, it has a nice image sensor. The problem with this is the .mod format. Where did that come from? It takes decent footage. But the footage it takes requires a lot of hops to jump through. Not many editing packages can use this without converting first.

Good camera for out door activity.

  • Summary: Good product for outdoor activity, will put up with a lot of abuse and weather. Works well in low light, only down fall is that it only has 2 megapixles for still camera shots.

So far, pretty good...

  • Summary: This review is for the JVC Everio GZ-MG255. My main use of this camera is for taping during church services. After just a couple uses, my impression of this camera is that the quality of video is better than I've experienced with other small HDD cameras.

Piece of Junk!!!

Joe Franks "Value oriented", Amazon
8 September 2009
  • Summary: Purchased this camcorder in July 2007. Have currently recorded on less than half of the hard drive, but with the unit less than 2 years old the CCD is defective. The camcorder will play back old scenes but will not record new ones.

  • Summary: The night time settings are lame. Recording with proper lighting is a must with this model. The 20 gb hd is plenty, but I can’t give this camcorder more than 3 stars.

  • Summary: Good video is not that easy to capture with this camera. If one uses a tripod all the time then the clips will be acceptable. Once you try to capture holding the camera the slightest movement results in some distortion. I have had to edit most clips to cut out disorted parts.
