Summary: I bought this little jewel at a PX in Germany and paid only 300 us new, the salesman apparently had no idea of how exp it was, anyway it was sitting in the reduced area because it had been opened and was missing both the micro drive and battery.
Summary: I work for a TV station, but didn't have a camera of my own. I picked this up because I was doing some undercover work and wanted a camera I could hide easier. It had a manual focus which I really wanted but it is not turn the focus ring and directly connected to the glass type.
Summary: I make a living producing videos with Mac's. I own this camera and I love it but there is one truth: the camera is not supported by JVC for Mac's... but that does not matter since you can still have a great experience. It is actually simpler to use with a Mac than with a PC!
Summary: This small thing is so unique that your satisfaction level will only depend on what you need from a camcorder. Firstly, everyone says this bug is not "that good" with low light. I can not agree with this, there are a few settings in the menu, and you can get really good results under low light.
Summary: A small camera which takes video in MPEG-2 (much better quality than my previous Sanyo Xacti C5, which records in MPEG-4 and more than comparable with my old Samsung DV camcorder). I record video to the microdrive and stills separately to the SD card.
Excerpt: Nach Jahren des Schaues und Suchen habe ich die MC 500 vor 3 Monaten erworben und habe sie noch längst nicht ausgereizt. Die Inbetriebnahme verlief ohne Schwierigkeiten. Ich hatte mir sogleich einen 2. Akku dazugekauft, was absolut wichtig ist.
