Summary: Ok.. this is now the 4th Review of this "Sort of" neat little camera. I decided to totally rewrite the review. Here we go again! I now own (5) GZ MC100 Mini Cams. One was bought as a traditional Referb. Two were bought new [...]. The other two were bought [...].
Summary: Pros: Tiny, take-anywhere size. Smaller than my palm, just fits in my front pants pocket. Controls well-positioned, intuitive, and one's not apt to accidently invoke unwanted functions. The Microdrive - works well here (and the 2 GB versions have been working well for laptop backups for awhile now).
Summary: I run trails. I need three features in a camcorder: 1. Shockproof and weatherproof. I've trashed two Mini DV camcorders, sending each back to the factory twice for repairs. Tape drives can't handle bouncing in a backpack. Also they can't handle rain. 2. Small and light. 3. Good picture quality.
Summary: I've had this unit for about 2 weeks now, and I really like the convenience of its size and digital file transfer, but I'm very disappointed with its color performance. In less-than-ideal lighting conditions, the image is dark and the color is very washed out.
Summary: I was intrigued by the prospect of a small, lightweight camera with no tape. I bought it at the first opportunity. However, having used it for a week, this is a huge disappointment. The battery lasts for meagre 30 minutes or so, and the picture quality indoors is very poor.
Summary: I have purchased 3 digital recorders in the past 10 months - the Fisher FVD C1, the Panasonic SV-AV100, and now the JVC. My goal was to find a small, compact camera that provided me with decent photos and decent video quality.
Summary: Pros: Its really small. I mean small. It will fit in most medium size camera cases. The still pics are acceptable. I have a sony p41 4.1MP and it comes close. With the 10x zoom I dare say it's more usefull than no zoom and more than makes up for pixels.
Summary: I bought this camcorder at Bargain ultimate through Amazon. It was delivered to me as promised and I got everything as I expected. I realy like this camcorder. It's so convienent to carry and shoot.
Summary: I recently purchased my JVC Everio MC100 at Fry's for $999.99 plus tax. It is the first camcorder I have owned in ten years. So, I wouldn't call myself a camcorder expert. This said, I travel a lot and have stuck to stills mostly because of weight. When I saw the MC100, I was intrigued.
