New Product: JVC Everio GZ-MG505 Hard-Disk Camcorder
NO FOOTAGE JVC's Everio camcorders ditch those archaic videotapes in favor of recording to a hard disk. The 30 gigs onboard the flagship model will hold 10.5 hours of DVD-quality material - captured in eye-catching color, thanks to the three CCD image sensors (cheaper cams have just one).
THE GOOD BITS All your videos are recorded in high-quality MPEG-2 format. Other perks of being King Everio: a 10X optical zoom for bringing distant targets up close and personal, a 2.7-inch LCD, and 5-megapixel still pics. $1,300 jvc.com 800-526-5308
