You may be a tape purist but nothing beats the playlists that instantly appear when you put a HDD camcorder in playback mode.
Good Massive storage (7 hours of MPEG2 video) Much less video noise than earlier Everios Fast focusing and response Nice ergonomics...
Bad Colors don’t have pop Color accuracy off target...
Bottom line There’s no question JVC had definitely made some progress with its hard-disc drive camcorders. By using three CCDs, annoying digital noise is greatly eliminated. The camcorder focuses quickly, is nicely designed other than a floppy lens cap but pure...

Cramming three CCD sensors into a camcorder isn’t a new idea. You split the image into red, green and blue light and use a sensor to capture each, with the promise for all this hard work being brighter colours and more detail. The MG505 packs this t...
Good 3CCDs mean a detailed and colourful picture. Masses of storage. Nice big, bright widescreen.
Bad Colours are sometimes too vivid. Hardly pocketable. Optical viewfinder can be grainy and washed out. No HD.
Bottom line 3CCD has yet to prove it’s worth the premium. If you want a hard-disker, go for one of the cheaper Everio models...

The JVC GZ-MG505 is the best of the Everio hard disk drive (HDD) camcorders, a welcome relief to a product line marred by overpriced and underperforming camcorders. However, much like its predecessor, the GZ-MC500, this top-of-the-line model managed to br...

JVC?s auto controls are as sufficient compared to most camcorders, so point and shooters could safe record a baseball game without too much trouble. The menus are inviting, so those willing to play around with a few controls should manage.
