JVC Everio GZ-MG630

 

JVC Everio GZ-MG630 with 60 GB of storage is an awesome, compact alternative to the end camcorder. The model comes in Blue, silver, and red and weighs in at a mere 11 ounces. The camera also has very convenient 2.7 inch LCD viewfinder.

Consumers appreciated the sensor upgrade as well as the large capacity of the HDD. They also commented on how compact the camera was and the ability to take it anywhere

Need an external microphone to pick up sound from subjects that you are not immediately in front of when filming.

JVC GZ-MG630

 

I'm not good with gadgets but I'm really pleased with this. My hands are not great but this is so light I can use it for a long time and keep it quite steady. The zoom is brilliant. Great to use if you are not a 'techi'.

I found It hard to take stills without getting camera shake and I wish the zoom could be operated with the same hand that holds the cam corder, operating would then be smoother. I'd still recommend this camera though.
