JVC GZ-MG505 Review

Digitaltrends
20 July 2006
  • 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

JVC Everio GZ-MG505

CNET
5 October 2006
  • 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.
