Great Camcorder - But!!!

Gadget Guy "Serious Music Lover", Amazon
22 December 2006
  • Summary: I first purchased a their GZ-MC200 unit. A very similar unit but without the improvements found on the MC500. Once I was satisfied that I wasn't buying a misteak (these models are discontinued) I went ahead and purchased the 500, their top of the line version. The GZ-Mc500: Video quality is great when their is enough light, and the auto focus system can work. The actual video capability is around 2mp in video mode.

.mod file is an mpeg2 file, works under Linux/Linspire

D. Fox, Amazon
31 March 2006
  • Summary: The .mod files produced by this camera can be viewed unmodified using a regular mpeg2 player such as mplayer. The wide mode does show up squeezed into a 4:3 aspect ratio, I haven't worked on that issue yet. Very pleased.

Great gadget for geeks like me

R. Eddings, Amazon
9 February 2006
  • Summary: This camcorder is definitely for hard core gadget geeks. I've had it for two days and I'm completely satisfied. I did extensive research before purchasing, so I knew what to expect. If you are used to editing with a miniDV camcorder, and expect this to work exactly the same, you will have problems. This is nether a miniDV camcorder nor a Firewire device. Trying to use video editing programs built around the miniDV framework will only lead to needless heartache.

JVC GZMC500U Camcorder

Michael J. Vandeberg, Amazon
31 January 2006
  • Summary: Several days of recording sporting activities has left me with a very positive reaction to this camcorder. Clip quality is very good. Clarity, color, anti-shake seem to be excellent. Operating controls are a little cramped and the multifunctions based on context for buttons required some learning. (It also results in fewer buttons!) After familiarization, they seemed second nature! I love the ability to throw it in my jacket pocket.

Nice convergence 5mp digital camera and video cam in one

Amazon Customer "Robert W. Bjoraker, Jr.", Amazon
4 June 2005
  • Summary: Had this digicam for about 24 hours and here are my first impressions: I own a Panasonic SV AV100 which saves mpeg2 video and mpg4 to a SD card. It did it well and I was pleased with it, but the low resolution digital camera function was surpassed by some wireless phones. I wanted a device that took high resolution photos and digital mpeg2 video saved to a memory card that could be immediately loaded to PC and burnt to DVD.

  • Excerpt: Non si può rimanere impassibili alla curiosità destata all'estrema variabilità del prezzo praticato per questa ottima videocamera, a prescindere da queli che possano essere i prezzi dei negozi e dei supermercati tra i quali spesso si arriva a differenze ...
