If, for some reason, you don't want to go the whole HD route, then the JVC GZ-MG465 is one of the best SD camcorders around.

Images are excellent for standard-definition footage

Pricey for a non-High-Definition 'corder

Expert review by: (



Standard definition hard drive camcorder with 60GB of storage and SD slot, fronted by a 32x optical zoom and with a 2.7-inch widescreen monitor to frame with. There's a megapixel sensor inside. It measures 54x68 x113mm and weights 360g. The good First...

If you’ve got a prejudice against HD camcorders this SD model is about as good as you’ll find. Video and sound quality are perfectly acceptable. In fact, it’s the Kylie Minogue of camcorders: small, sexy and slightly out of date. JVC GZ-MG465 is tagged...

Everio GZ series (flash) review


JVC's Everio GZ-MS100 is a compact, budget SD-card-based camcorder capitalizing on the trend of one-touch upload of video to the Internet; the big YouTube sticker on back of the camcorder's LCD and the YouTube branding on the box are kind of a...

Average standard-definition video quality for its class; manual controls; small, comfortable design.

Tricky menu navigation; polarizing interface; meager user guide; and questionable YouTube-friendliness.

The JVC Everio GZ-MS100 is an average budget SD-card-based camcorder that's more attractive for its small design and relatively average video quality than its unique interface and one-touch uploads to YouTube.

JVC Everio GZ-EX300


The Everio GZ-EX355 has a great combination of video recording quality and handy extras. Not many camcorders can top this full HD video camera in video quality, and the integrated Wi-Fi and memory save you the hassle included with other camcorders. You...

HD camcorder has one of the best battery lives ranked

The customer support options do not include live chat

The JVC GZ-EX355 features a long battery life, integrated memory and a built-in Wi-Fi. Not many things missing besides a live chat option from JVC's customer service department.

JVC Everio GZ-HM301


its ok but i thought it was a lot bigger

JVC Everio GZ-HM301


Small and easy to carry. Decent sound quality, and good image quality for price. Good for home movies and basic recordings. Easy to use, a good camcorder for beginners and vloggers. Good optical zoom and focus.

Battery life could be better. Bad sound in loud environments. Video output format doesn't play in some movie players, i.e Quicktime - conversion is needed.

JVC Everio GZ-HM301


As this was a gift I didnt use the camcorder to its fullest potential, but when I did use it I particularly liked the weight of it. It wasnt heavy and so fitted in my bag nicely. The quality of the picture is exceptional and it has a magnificant zoom...

I think the only thing that I can negatively say about the camcorder is it may be a little on the small side for someone who has large hands.
