CNET
30 November 2006
  • Summary: A well-designed hard-disk-based camcorder, the JVC Everio GZ-MG505 produces video and stills that look great on TV. But its price might make you hit Pause.
  • Pros: Generally satisfying video and still-photo quality; light and compact design; appropriate and usable manual controls.
  • Cons: No eye-level viewfinder; requires a pass through the manual to understand operation; no internal lens cover; renders reds poorly; video looks washed out on computer.

JVC GZ-MG505 Review

Digitaltrends
20 July 2006
  • Excerpt: Could this HDD camcorder be the one to solve the substandard video problem? This is what we hoped to discover as we anxiously opened the carton and prepped the JVC Everio GZ-MG505 for a hands-on test.
  • Pros: Three 1.33MP CCDs; 30GB storage, Massive storage (7 hours of MPEG2 video), Much less video noise than earlier Everios, Fast focusing and response, Nice ergonomics
  • Cons: Expensive; colors have no "pop", Colors don’t have pop, Color accuracy off target

28 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Камера положительно отличается от остальных. она имеет светозащитную бленду (переняв ее от предшественницы), корпус сделан из черного матового пластика. в камере нет привычного видоискателя, в то время как остальные производители, видимо, побаиваясь, лишь упрощают его, jvc просто отказывается от его использования. жаль, что крышка объектива не перекочевала внутрь, а осталась ручной. вес камеры всего 450 г.
  • Pros: дизайн, техническое оснащение, запись звука в формате 5,1. Емкий жесткий диск, продуманная эргономика.
  • Cons: крепление ЖК-экрана. Пока еще лишь средний уровень изображения.

  • Conclusion: Assez bien conçu, l’Everio GZ-MG505 permet de filmer assez simplement directement sur son disque dur de 30 Go. En plus, la qualité des vidéos produites demeure plus que correcte.
