Expert Review

Easy Camcorder
28 September 2005
  • Excerpt: The JVC GZ-MC500 stands at the forefront of a new generation of camcorders. Say good-bye to tapes – the flash memory camcorders have arrived in force. Well, almost. The new Everio digital media series from JVC offers a number of benefits over MiniDV, but the price, and several other factors, remains a significant hindrance. At $1500, the GZ-MC500 is by far the priciest Everio model, making it difficult to recommend outright. But the performance is undeniably great.
  • Pros: -Still Performance, -Ease Of Use, -Portability
  • Cons: -Manual Control, -Handling, -Closed Battery Port, -Audio

  • Summary: Despite the 3CCD image sensor and 5 megapixel still images, the GZ-MC500 is more suited to the casual moviemaker than the serious video enthusiast.
  • Pros: Styling, quality 3CCD imaging sensor
  • Cons: Handling, 4GB hard drive on the small side, no AVI video format option

JVC Everio GZ-MC500EK

PC Advisor
8 November 2005
  • Summary: Not only is this the smallest three-CCD camcorder we've ever seen, it's also a JVC Everio, so it doesn't record to DV tape. Like its MC200 predecessor (see April 05 issue), the GZ-MC500EK stores its video in Mpeg2 format on a Hitachi Microdrive installed in a CompactFlash slot.

JVC Everio GZ-MC500

12 February 2006
  • Excerpt: Det er nå snart 10 år siden DV-formatet entret markedet. Bedre kvalitet, mer funksjonelt og mindre fysisk størrelse var nøkkelord den gang. Det samme gjelder i dag. En microdrive er en bitteliten hardisk. Så liten at den får plass inni et Compact Flash 2 kort(!) Noe av det spesielle med et slikt kort er at du ikke behøver å spole fram og tilbake slik som man er vant til fra videokassetter. Her kan du flytte deg rundt fra klipp til klipp med en liten joystick.
  • Pros: Lyd, USB fremfor Firewire, Oversiktlige menyer, Du slipper å spole
  • Cons: Pris, Lite responsivt, Vanskelig å betjene eksponering, Få og trege knapper, Liten skjerm?

10 January 2006
  • Excerpt: Каждая модель серии everio имеет свой неповторимый дизайн. gz-mc500 еще раз подтвердила это. темный цвет корпуса, светозащитная бленда и необычные для видеокамеры пропорции сделают ее легко узнаваемой.
  • Pros: миниатюрная конструкция, отличное изображение при нормальном уровне освещения, удобное управление.
  • Cons: все бы хорошо, да только цена на микродрайвы падает не так быстро, как хотелось бы.

  • Conclusion: L'Everio GZ-MC500 réunit trois capteurs CCD dans un encombrement minimum. Particulièrement compact et aisé à utiliser, ce caméscope se révèle le compagnon idéal pour filmer des séquences à l’improviste.

JVC Everio GZ-MC500

CNET
22 July 2005
  • Summary: Der MC500 sieht nicht nur wie ein professioneller Camcorder aus, sondern liefert auch eine dementsprechende Performance. Statt der üblichen 1-fach-CCD verwendet der MC500 drei unterschiedliche CCDs, die die Farbschärfe erheblich verbessern. Der größte Vorteil des MC500 liegt jedoch in seiner handlichen Größe.
  • Pros: gutes Styling, professionelle Bilder, einfache Handhabung, anspruchsvolle Aufnahmeformate
  • Cons: keine Fernbedienung, kein Firewire, Import von Videos im MPEG-2-Format ist kompliziert, begrenzte Aufnahmezeit beim Standard-Microdrive
