WOW

Kota "Kota", Amazon

  • Summary: Could not believe the price on this used, but in VERY good conditioned, camcorder! The batter still holds a charge, ordered another from Amazon anyway, and shot my first clip on a deer in my backyard. Came out GREAT! Will scroll thru more used items for yet another great deal.

JVC Does Not Stand Behind Their Products - JVC Lemoncorder

A German Amazon Customer "Samvado", Amazon
15 August 2006
  • Summary: I agree with the many other users who have experienced the "Condensation, Operation Paused" defect on their JVC GR-xxxx. Despite numerous others reporting this problem, JVC says its not a recognized problem. I would disagree - it is a recognized problem, but its your problem, not theirs.

An average camera with an infinite recording time

Georgy K. "georgyk", Amazon
12 August 2006
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my broken Digital8 Sony camcorder and the same sales guy who sold me the Sony 6 years ago advised me to buy this JVC, on one single criterion: the near-infinite hard disk drive storage. This was almost the only claim that was actually fulfilled.

Uber Convienant Video Camera

Santino, Amazon
25 March 2006
  • Summary: You know what I hate about video tapes in camcorders? You never really know where the record heads are: "If I hit record now, am I taping over something else? Now let's see, the last time I played back the tape, I think I fast forwarded back to the current record mark... or did I?

Excellent (for for average users)

Ryan Platt, Amazon
11 January 2006
  • Summary: Please note that since there have already been many user reviews written, this may not seem like much of a "review", but I thought I would touch on a few things I was wondering about myself before buying the camera in case it might help someone else. This hard drive-based camcorder is wonderful.

happy with it

anadolu, Amazon
23 December 2005
  • Summary: [Below is my recent review of the JVC Everio GZ-MG40, which has a 20GB hard drive rather than 30GB. Becase GZ-MG50 seems to be identical to GZ-MG40 save the hard drive capacity, I thought this review would be useful to those considering to buy GZ-MG50.

Found editing software that works with the JVC Everio G

Silicon Valley Geek "Riptide360", Amazon
23 October 2005
  • Summary: Love my new JVC Everio. The original model just used compact flash cards, but the new Everio GZ uses an ipod like hard drive that lets you store a year's worth of video on it! Tape is definitely dead, and DVD camcorder's 30 mintues a disc doesn't hold a candle to the Everio.

Not that great

Kevin Morgan-Rothschild "Kevin", Amazon
10 October 2005
  • Summary: I bought this camera without doing much reviewing, because there was none at the time. The hard drive disk is really conveniant for easily deleting a video file after you just took it. Copying the files to the computer is simple, but actually getting them onto DVDs can be difficult.
