Indoor picture quality not sufficient.

nishiko, Amazon

  • Summary: First the good: this camera is small and very convenient in MANY ways and you don't have the cost of tapes or mini CD's. And if you are a little computer savvy, the file format issue that people are always complaining about really isn't that big of a deal.

Not the best.not the worst

Lamont Johnson, Amazon

  • Summary: I brought this cam at an extremely low price ($80.shhhhhhh). I had already seen the camera at stores and was already interested in the no need to buy recording media feature. I must admit that and the fact tht it transfer to the pc was a strong selling point.

Response to previous question

Dani J. Page, Amazon

  • Summary: In regards to whether or not you should keep your old camera, that's up to you. Really, most people are turning their video into digital anyways, so it's really not a question anymore. This just facilitates that process. However, keep in mind one thing: digital items fail.

  • Summary: it does a lot of amazing things, you wont need any special cables just the only cable to transfer everything to your computer, it is a camera and a cam-corder, it has great pictures and i've made a lot of good quality short films with it. Good editing system.

Greatest camcorder ever!

Kenneth Kieso, Amazon
14 April 2006
  • Summary: I read all the reviews and have to say I have no idea what they are talking about. Sure you need a computer thats not 3 years old and up to date software like anything thats new these days. But just imagine NEVER having to buy tapes or CD's again! And the picture is always prefect!

A l'il sumpthin' to generally consider...

Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 April 2006
  • Summary: Frankly, I like my MG30. The only thing that gives me pause is its propensity to physically generate heat to the point of becoming uncomfortable to hold. This is a well known problem within the JVC line itself. (Much like Honda cars and bikes having BAD RINGS.

Consider your computer hardware carefully before purchase

J. Sieverding, Amazon
13 April 2006
  • Summary: After buying this product I found out the hard way that the only way this works as advertised is with a fairly new computer, preferable with a media center. I spent many, many, many frustrating hours trying to get the system to work on my 3 year old machine (Windows XP with plenty of memory).
