Decent camcorder

Bharesh Dedhia, Amazon
20 October 2009
  • Summary: Shoots good videos, but the 5 MP still photos leave much to be desired. Confirms the addage that cannot have one product do it all. Have been using this for about 3 years and overall satisfied.

love it, but a bit heavy with extra battery

Q. Yue, Amazon
11 October 2008
  • Summary: I really love this camcorder. Great video quality, easy-to-use menu, and all kinds of functions which are similar to a professional camcorder. Since I have to buy an extra battery so that I can make full use of its 30G hard disk, I find it's hard to hold it still for longer than 3 min with the extra battery. So far this is the only problem I have with this camcorder.

  • Summary: I bought this video camera in August, I got jumped by three guys wanting the video camera and I wouldn't let go of it the side of the camera got ripped off lost the HDD card some how all while these guys are hitting me. So I contact JVC bring it to there repair place and they didn't charge me for the Estament which is 50 dollars Thank you JVC. So they check out the camera and give me the total of what it will cost to repair 773.51 including labor of course.

JVC Everio GZ-MG505EX 3CCD Digital Camcorder

(k2), Ebay
9 September 2006
  • Summary: JVC's Everio will be to digital video recording what the iPod was to digital audio recording. The JVC Everio line of hard-disk camcorders offer large storage capacity, eliminating the need to carry tapes, discs, or any media at all. The MG505EX is the top of the line for the Everio series, with a 3CCD, 5 megapixel lens. It also offers a 16:9 widescreen mode.

  • Summary: A compact, reliable point and shoot. So easy to put in one's pocket. I will use it often.
  • Pros: Simple to use and easy manual functions, plus 5-megapixel camera
  • Cons: No zero lux night capture! I can't see the point of night mode as there's plenty of noise from movement.

Excelente filmadora!

ronaldo, Bondfaro
1 July 2009
  • Summary: Otima filmadora com tamanho reduzido que filma com qualidade e tambem fotografa muito bem , eliminando a necessidade de ter que levar em uma viagem uma filmadora e uma maquina fotografica digital, pois a JVC GZ MG 505 faz as duas coisas muito bem, e conta ainda com um HD 30 G que elimina a necessidade das fitas.Pratica, pequena e boa.
  • Pros: Tamanho reduzido, otima qualidade na filmagem e tambem para as fotos que são de 5 megapixel, facilidade de arquivar tudo no HD de 30 G
  • Cons: Não fotografa simultaneamente qdo se esta filmando - a bateria que vem com a filmadora tem pouca duração o que obriga a comprar outra de maior capacidade - não tem visor optico - os comandos poderiam ser mais faceis e praticos

Für einfache Aufnahmen bestens geeignet

emrahx99, Ciao
27 September 2007
  • Summary: Kurz vor meinem Urlaub habe ich mir die Kamera gekauft um die wichtigsten Urlaubsmomente festhalten und später auch weitere private Aufnahmen durchzuführen. Mit den Aufnahmen bin ich sehr zufrieden. Die kurze Akkulaufzeit von ca. 40 Minuten ist sehr kurz und schnell erreicht. Ein zweites Akku und größeres schafft da Abhilfe. [Ausstattung: 5 von 5 Punkten] Die Kamera ist sehr handlich, klein und leicht. Sie hat eine sehr gute Menüführung in verschiedenen Sprachen.
  • Pros: Bildqualität am Tag, Tonqualität, Menüführung, Handhabung, Handlich
  • Cons: Nachtaufnahmen, Fotokamera, Akku hält nur ca .  40 min .

Nicht nur für Profis....

  • Summary: Hallo, nach langer Zeit melde ich mich wieder zurück und versuch euch gute Testberichte zu liefern und euch bei eurer Kaufentscheidung zu helfen. Diesmal geht es um die JVC Everio GZ-MG505. Vor den Bildern kommt wie immer der Dreh. Der hat es im Falle der MG505 ebenfalls in sich. Bereits nach einem Blick auf das Gehäuse und einigen klicks durch das Menü wird klar, diese Everio ist etwas für Erwachsene.
  • Pros: Fokusasistent, HD ready, Menüführung
  • Cons: Preis, sonst nichts

Ein Festplattencamcorder - Lohnt es sich?

mira_penelope, Ciao
14 January 2007
  • Summary: Der GZ-MG505 ist der neue Camcorder aus der Everio-G Serie und verfügt über eine Festplatte von über 30 GB, das entspricht ca. der Kapazität von 6 DVDs. Zusätzlich zu der Viedeoaufnahme besteht auch die Möglichkeit hochauflösende Fotos zu schießen, wobei sich der Camcorder mit einer Auflösung von 5 Megapixel sicher nicht hinter guten Digitalkameras zu verstecken braucht.
  • Pros: 30 GB Festplatte, sehr gute Bildqualität, viele Funktionen
  • Cons: vergleichsweise eher teuer
