Expert review by : Bruce Buckman (

JVC Everio GZ-MC200


With the Everio GZ-MC200 camcorder, JVC takes an interesting approach to the problem of storing large amounts of high-quality video on digital media. ...

4G Microdrive, 8G CompactFlash card compatible, Compact unit, Easy to use

Must transfer footage to a PC, No allowances for external peripherals

Using the microdrive is a great idea and works well in this unit.

Expert review by : Aimee Baldridge (



This stylish combination of an MPEG-2 camcorder and a 2-megapixelcamera moves cassette-free digital recording forward but not without sacrifices.
