JVC GZ-MG465B

 

Highly arresting design, 60GB hard drive, MicroSD slot for additional recording, good video performance

Laser touch' operation needs significant refining, auto focus less zippy than we're used to

If you're on the lookout for a standard definition HDD camcorder, the GZ-MG465B is one of the more interesting options on the market. Provided you can get your head (and finger) around the unusual control interface, it won't disappoint.

Excellent

 

Overall i am very happy with this camera. No problems at all so far, works really well with my Apple Mac. Battery life isn't too bad. Huge amount of space on the Hard drive even in the fine/high res mode. I knocked the camera off a cabinet on to the...

Small, lightweight, easy to use, optional extra battery and camera case.

No night mode, zoom can be a little too sensitive
