JVC GZ-MG255 Camcorder Review

The JVC GZ-MG255 is the middle child in this year’s Everio hard disk drive camcorder line. In the style of classic middle child syndrome, the camcorder sits meekly in the back of the classroom, ignored and forgettable.

It will certainly have a hard time satisfying a large general audience. Let’s see what worked and what didn’t.
