Pros: -Great feature set overall, with manual controls rivaling Panasonic, -Joystick controller works well, and screen-side placement surprisingly convenient, -Very good video quality, and versatility, -Huge 60GB HDD, -Good video performance and excellent still performance, -Audio jacks for mic and phones
Cons: -With HD camcorders only a few hundred dollars more, value is questionable for this SD model, -Battery life is shorter than competing models
Conclusion: There’s no question JVC had definitely made some progress with its hard-disc drive camcorders . By using three CCDs, annoying digital noise is greatly eliminated. The camcorder focuses quickly, is nicely designed other than a floppy lens cap but pure video quality leaves something to be desired.
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
