Conclusion: The JVC Everio GZ-MG670, which costs around $425, is a decent little camcorder. It’s light, comfortable and has the features any good video capture device should have – namely a zoom, a big LCD screen and storage by the bucketful. That on the table, picture quality is just adequate at SD levels on monitor screens; the 1080p upconverting via HDMI to a HDTV is an improvement but it’s not close to true high-def.
Pros: 35x zoom, 80GB HDD camcorder with iTunes/YouTube uploads
Cons: OK color, needs optical image stabilization, uses microSD cards
