Konica Minolta Lens
All Everio models have been equipped with a high-performance lens developed by camera specialist, KONICA MINOLTA. It captures clear and bright images.
35x Optical Zoom
Everio is equipped with an industry-leading 35x optical zoom for incredible magnification with full optical quality. Digital zoom takes you up to 800x.
6 digital noise reduction systems improve the S/N ratio by about 30% (3dB) over previous models, while the integrated MPEG-2 encoder helps reduce block noise and mosquito noise. It''s assurance that all of those Gigabytes of video and photos you shoot will offer the best picture quality available for each recording mode.
Up to 75 Hours Recording with 4 Recording Modes
Internal high-capacity HDD allows extremely long recording times. With the 60GB model, you can store up to 75 hours of video. You can choose the picture quality from four modes, from high-quality video equivalent to DVD Movie to small-sized clip ideal for uploading to the Web.
HDD/ microSD Hybrid Design
In addition to a built-in hard disk drive, Everio also has a slot for microSD Card so you can store videos and stills on this commonly available memory card (not supplied). Now copy video and stills from the built-in HDD to the microSD card. Sharing is even easier.
Laser Touch Operation
The scroll bar and buttons are touch-sensitive so you just glide your finger up or down the bar to choose menu items while its cool blue light follows your movements. You don''t touch the LCD screen itself, so it won''t get dirty or smudged. No fingerprints.
Auto LCD Backlight Control
Automatically adjusts brightness of the LCD backlight for comfortable viewing whether indoors or outdoors.
Auto Power ON/OFF
With Everio, you don''t have to use the power switch each time you operate because the power is linked to the LCD''s opening and closing. Just open the LCD and the camera turns on. Close the LCD to turn the power off and avoid wasting battery power. Operation has never been easier!
In combination with Auto Power ON, you''re ready to shoot in about 1 second when the LCD is re-opened. Never miss a crucial moment.
Auto Illumi. Light
Turns on automatically so you can shoot brilliant images even in low light situations (7Mega model is equipped with Auto Flash).
Built-in digital image stabilizer effectively compensates for "camera-shake", enabling stable image shooting.
Built-In Lens Cover
Slide it shut to protect the lens when the camera''s not in use. It''s integrated, so there''s no risk of losing it like a separate lens cap.
Allows you to check the remaining battery power by % and remaining recording time in minutes. Optional larger capacity batteries are available for purchase.
Provided remote control to operate Everio from a distance for playback, DVD burning, etc. just like a DVD deck.
HDD Protection & Stability
To safeguard Hard Disk Drive from shocks and vibrations, the Everio has a Floating Suspension System that effectively dampens vibrations through polymer shock absorbers. Also incorporated is a Gravity Sensor System that automatically senses sudden acceleration such as in a free fall situation, and turns off the power to defend the hard disk so that a head crash can be avoided even when the unit is dropped.

Comments about JVC GZ-MG330 Everio Hard Disk Camcorder (Sapphire Blue):
I knew with in minutes of picking up this camcorder that this was the one I have been waiting for. Super Small, Hard drive, means no tapes or discs to buy EVER. With the ability to record up to 37 hours. I don't know if there is anything I need to record that long.
The Instant On and Off feature, is very cool, all you have to do is open the screen...and your recording. The menu is very easy to use and operate.
The fact that it will also accept, Micro SD cards to expand the recording time and Take still photos with, well all I could say was WOW!
And it comes in 3 colors too. For the price, it's great!
