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

  • 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?

  • Summary: JVC Everio GZ-MC500 er et videokamera med Microdrive. Den skal gjøre det mer praktisk å ta videoopptak siden du slipper det gamle ”spole-systemet”. Løsningen har flere fordeler, men også ulemper. Begrenset lagringsplass og pris er to elementer som trekker kraftig ned. Samtidig kan du bruke kameraet som fotokamera med fem megapiksler. Bildene eller filmen du får har en helt akseptabel kvalitet og lyden likeså. Faktisk er lyden overraskende god.

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
