JVC everio camcorder - style and simplicity

With so many camcorders which have entered the flash memory bandwagon, JVC stands out with its everio series camcorders. I will be looking at the JVC GZ-MS100 camcorder in particular. Even though JVC is a latecomer in this scene, they have announced their arrival with a bang. The JVC everio is a feature packed compact camcorder with the ability to upload videos to YouTube easily.

JVC has been able to make the JVC GZ-MS100 into a sleek compact beauty thanks to its SD-based storage technology. So you can expect not to be tired easily carrying this camcorder around. It is ideal for those field trips and fishing trips.

The buttons and toggle switches are located just about the right places for easy access and just right for your fingers. There is also a laser touch bar right beside the 2.7" LCD - this eliminates the need for a joystick. The laser touchbar might take some time to get used to, so expect to spend a little more time in the menus. There is also an in-built digital image stabilizer which makes sure that your videos are shake-free. The Gigabrid engine chip improves the Signal to Noise Ratio which ensures that you won't see too many noise speckles during those low-light shoots. The JVC GZ-MS100 camcorder ensures fluid recordings which are smooth and crisp. Other features include a 35x optical zoom, 800x digital zoom and 680K effective pixels.

As for battery life, this camcorder has enough juice to last for and hour to an hour and a half. Charging time depends on the juice left in the battery and can range from as low as 10 minutes to about an hour.

This camcorder is a convenient, feature packed model with an affordable price tag. You can get yours from Amazon by clicking below.

The price seems reasonable for what you get - impressive zoom too. Can never see the point of digital zooms though - they always seem to distort the image too much.

I have one of these babies myself. Yes the digital zoom starts to distort the image after a certain point. But otherwise this is an awesome camcorder for non professionals.
