Expert review by: Joshua Goldman (cnet.com.au)

JVC Everio GZ-MS120

 

Two SD card slots allow for up to 64GB of storage, but otherwise the MS120 is a nice, albeit run-of-the-mill, flash-memory-based standard-def camcorder.

Good video quality for its class ; Manual controls ; Small, comfortable design

No inputs ; Questionable YouTube friendliness ; No optical image stabilisation ; Thin grip strap

Yes, the dual-SDHC card slot is a gimmick, but hey, it works and it allows you to grow your storage larger than other manufacturers' camcorders. Other than that, the JVC Everio GZ-MS120 is a fairly typical standard-def camcorder.

Good

 

The software is a nightmare, it is torture. Everything about it. A real pain in the behind. I normally pick up software very quickly but this one rates right up there among the duds. But the camera itself is great. Very lightweight, easy to use, flip...

Lightweight, looks good, great recorded picture, widescreen

Software will send you INSAINE, wind noise

Excellent

 

I bought this to record my Husbands band at gigs and it did a great job even in dim light and sound was good too (not tinny) For the price I think its excellent....I love it!!!

Bad

 

Very disappointed. Purchased the camcorder for a 2 week cruise to NZ. Used the camera for mostly still pics. Quality was poor, worse when blown up on screen. Camera phone can take better pics. Videos aren't any better.

Size, easy to use, rechargable battery

Picture quality varied from blurry to great. Had to delete over half the pics.

Bad

 

I bought the camera for family memories. I did my research on the net and this seemed to be in the top line up. It is claimed to give SD quality but I can see all the lines in the picture, particularly in full screen, and people moving reduce the...

Cheap price, easy to operate, dual sd slots.

Picture quality is poor, moving subjects blur. Non-standard file format. Software.
