Excellent camcorder. Excellent value.

J. Hann, Amazon
3 March 2007
  • Summary: JVC's G-series camcorders are an excellent value. The GZMG57 is no exception. I bought this for my wife and she is thrilled. She likes the point-and-click simplicity, the millions of features, the simple video browsing (playback) mode, and the quality of the video.

Pleasantly surprised

Cheezr, Amazon
3 March 2007
  • Summary: After reading all the "professional" reviews, i decided to try the MG57 anyway and i am completely pleased. It may not be a top of the line, pro video / coffee maker but it is a very competent video camera. The manual is actually useful although you dont need it.

Great Camcorder Overall

Shane Lems, Amazon
3 March 2007
  • Summary: This is a great camcorder. It is very small, compact, easy to run, and even looks nice. It actually fits in most average size digital camera cases. I've not had it all that long, but so far I am pleased with it. Let me just list the pros and cons; hopefully it is helpful.

Fun to use this camera

Bill S., Amazon
2 March 2007
  • Summary: I haven't used a camcorder for quite a while. I wanted to capture some of my granddaughter's finer moments. This camera is light and convenient to use. It was easy to pick it up and start using with minimal setup. I'm really glad I bought this camcorder.

  • Summary: Pretty easy to use. Picture quality OK but not excellent. But does not get too much worse in low light. Also suggestions in other reviews helped me set it up.

I bought two one time, but both were broken

Xiin Zhao, Amazon
2 March 2007
  • Summary: I bought two one time, but there was no vedio on LCD as opened for both! They could not recorded vedio but audio only. It seemed that they hadn't CCD at all! I had to mail them back to repare just the day I got them, and the JVC even would not cover the charge!

great for concerts

Kris Miranda, Amazon
2 March 2007
  • Summary: Sure, the low-light isn't fantastic, but the gain-up does help, and the sound quality is excellent. I've used it for concerts by a cappella groups, a jazz band, and more, and haven't yet been disappointed.

Can you say... AWESOME?!

J. Breneman, Amazon
2 March 2007
  • Summary: The size of my hand, literally. It is so light weight that you hardly notice it, and as such have no problem holding it for a long period of time. It packs a ton of features, and I love to play with the manual modes, as the auto can sometimes add precious time to focus, ending up in a possible...

Good Value

Salsquatch, Amazon
2 March 2007
  • Summary: It's a nice product for the price. Very compact. Good quality video for my purposes. The battery life is a problem. I've been using it to tape portions of my son's baseball games, recording for about 10 seconds at a time and pausing (when he's batting or pitching) and it barely makes it through the...
