JVC Everio GZ-MS100 Video Camcorder: One-Button Upload to YouTube
Personal Electronics buzz
11 August 2009
Excerpt: The JVC GZ-MS100 video/still camcorder features a specially designed one-button upload to YouTube. It is by far one of the smallest, low cost, user friendly, high resolution camcorder on the market. I purchased it because I took my hobby of kite and whirligig making and began selling them on-line.
Excerpt: “It’s a YouTube camera … It’s a camcorder made for uploading YouTube clips … We think this cam will be great for sending videos to sites like YouTube.” Honestly, if I hear that phrase (or anything like it) one more time I’m going to punch the YouTube guys in the back of the head . Why?
Pros: 35x optical zoom brings the action right to your doorstep. Superb video quality. Formula 1 start-up speed. Easy to use laser touch LCD.
Cons: No optical image stabilization. Lack of Mac compatibility is inexcusable and utterly perplexing. Three hundred and fifty bones for a camera that’s made to record for YouTube? The Flip Mino does the same thing for about half the cost.
Conclusion: So this boils down to a decent, lightweight standard-def 35x zoom camcorder with software that makes uploading to YouTube relatively simple. There are many other less expensive gadgets that let you post to YouTube but quality is pretty weak.
Pros: Lightweight; decent video quality; 35X optical zoom
Cons: Hardly a "One-Touch" upload to YouTube; feels flimsy; low-quality stills
Excerpt: We’ve all heard of JVC right? I bet even if you ask your folks at home they’ll tell you they’ve seen the name somewhere. All you guys who grew up in the Dubai/Bahrain or any other country in the Middle East (where most Indians go) will have heard of JVC.
