JVC Everio GZ-MG575

 

The first players in the hard disk camcorder space by JVC have consistently produced compact, feature rich digital video cameras that usually suffer a...

Up to 50 hours recording, minimal image noise, decent low light shooting

Poor sharpness, lots of image artefacts, colours are a little dull

JVC's Everio GZ-MG575 is a decent hard disk camera. It won't satisfy those looking for premium quality video footage, but the long list of features, relatively simple interface, and 40GB of storage go some way to making up for this.

Battery,will have to fork out for a bigger one

Consumer review by: eddiejames (productreview.com.au)

OK

 

I think that this is a good camcorder, but there are better out, so i would recommend getting one of the newer models. The main think i don't like about it is that if you turn it off, the battery still goes down. The camcorder does have some good parts...

Nice video features, good for video recording, good picture quality

A bit to big, battery doesn't last that long

Consumer review by: franksaxson (productreview.com.au)

Good

 

I had been using for the past 3 years, Instrument is good and worth for the price tag. If any once can a get a good everio dvd burner, it should give a better dvd writing and smooth clip plays.

Simple to use

The everio dvd maker is not good, when i a burn a dvd i can see the difference between each clip play.
