JVC Everio GZ-MG275


JVC is something of a pioneer when it comes to hard disk-based camcorders, with nearly a two-year head start on the majority of its competitors. While...

Impressive video quality, user-friendly interface, SDHC/SD recording capabilities

10x optical zoom, a little pricey for a standard-definition camera

Despite being hampered by a weak optical zoom and questionable asking price, the GZ-MG275 is a solid HDD/SD camera that will satisfy all but the pickiest of users.

JVC Everio GZ-MG275


The GZ-MG275 is a hard-disk based camcorder ideal for entry-level videographers, although its asking price might give some HD enthusiasts pause for thought.

Automated, shutter-style lens cap can't be lost ; Docking station makes connecting a snap ; Good quality video ; 40GB of storage space

Lacks viewfinder ; Zoom maxes out at 10x

The only other caveat we'd put on the MG275 is that consumer HD camcorders are fast tumbling in price, and the MG275 isn't an HD model. It's a good camera certainly, but if you're looking at a camera as a long-term investment, anything costing north of...

I used 3 handy cam till date JVC-GD53 (tape) Canon(CD) and this one.

The only i can tell is Harddisk and more time length video

The picture must be run in manual then only it work well other then in auto is not functioning well, The still picture is worst (do not take)

JVC Everio GZ-MG275


Have this camcorder for half a year now and i'm really satisfied with it's performance but only on daytime. Got great picture and color quality. Hard-drive based video camera is the way to go if your looking for future-proof entry-level, home use camera.

Easy to use, light to carry and superb video quality both indoor and outdoor

Not high-definition level-yet. Low performance included battery and cheapy hand strap. Crappy night perfomance

JVC Everio GZ-MG275


My husband and I have only had our JVC GZ-MG275 for a day but we are definitely happy with it. We actually first bought a Sony DCRSR42 but was very disappointed with the video quality. We then swapped it for the JVC GZ-MG275 and just paid an additional...

definitely very good video quality ; have tried it indoors and outdoors(at night) and it still produces quality videos

My husband likes the Sony's handstrap better though. hehehehe. but the video quality is what we were after
