JVC Everio GZ-MG70 Introduction

What an innovative idea. Put a 30GB hard drive inside a digital video camera! No more worrying about running out of tape or filling up your flash memory card while capturing video or images! That’s exactly what JVC has done with their Everio GZ-MG70 digital media camera. With the ability to capture both still and video images.

JVC Everio GZ-MG70 Design

The GZ-MG70 has a 30 GB hard disk, is truly palm-sized, and weighs less than 14 ounces with the battery attached. Its design is similar to a MiniDV camcorders, which means that it’s comfortable to hold and operate, and it includes a large, 2.5-inch flip-out LCD monitor for easy recording. Playback is easy, too, with multiple connections allowing convenient TV playback; dubbing to a VCR or DVD recorder; transfer to a PC or Apple Macintosh for DVD creation, editing, or posting on the Internet; or even burning directly without a PC to a full-length movie DVD disc using an optional DVD burner.
