The JVC Everio GZ-MG730 produces acceptable standard-def video and good photos in bright light, but considering its price tag, it's ultimately disappointing.
Despite good performance and the ability to capture 7-megapixel still images, this little hard drive-based camcorder is priced too closely to better HD models.
The Photo Archival Company claims to be the first to offer video archiving expressly for hard drive- or flash-based camcorders, likely because no one else thought it was a necessary service.
Most of the new models offer less power for the same money. Hmmm.
JVC has premiered a selection of tiny new standard-definition Everio camcorders: the Everio MG330, MG335, MG361, MG365, MG435 and MG465
The Hitachi DZ-BD10HA is the most hybrid of hybrid camcorders and still manages good video and photo quality. But it's also slow and expensive.
