JVC Everio GZ-MG21 review

 

main content Hard drive camcorders seem like a great idea. A tiny hard drive in a small camcorder case can record hours upon hours of video without having to switch out a tape or a DVD. Unfortunately, JVC's execution falls short; just like its nearly...

Light and tiny; many hours of recording time.

Poor video quality; awkward control scheme; image stabilization is a joke; not for big hands.

JVC GZ-MG21

 

My first camcorder. Very impressed by lightweight and ease of use, makes you more inclined to use it or keep it handy in your pocket.
