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

Watch out for shipping

 

Great camera and top notch company other than shipping. UPS driver dropped off camera in the snow beside door during a snow storm. Found later that day soaking wet under 4 inches of snow. UPS did not even ring door bell or knock because we were home...

Fantastic little Camera!

 

If you can afford it then get it.Buying a cheaper camera to save money is not recommended.Remember you get what you pay for,also never again have to worry about your DVD/tape running out and having to carry extras.

Small size and a huge 60 GB internal hard drive.The video quality is amazing and it takes great still shots also.I also like the 1 touch uploading to Youtube/PC and 1 touch DVD burning.It's overall the best camera we've ever owned

Excellent Camera

 

Small, Light weight. Great Picture quality and the light feature is excellent. the 800x digital zoom is amazing, though will require a tripod for that high of a zoom. We bought the package deal that came with a carrying case and a 3.5 hour battery...

Original battery only has a life span of 1.5 hours. We purchased a larger battery when we purchased the camera. 1.5 hours doesnt take long at all to use. Could have found a better place for the battery. With the way you hold the camera, the thumb...

Bad

 

I'd hope the problems we encountered were one-off's and not indicative of the quality of the brand. JVC customer service were responsive and polite.

Size, colour, ease of use, zoom functions, screen.

Continually locking up during record, had to remove battery to reset, file errors on playback. Send to JVC repairer, supposedly fixed, not. Contacted head office and sent camera back to repairer, JVC ended up replacing camera.
