Video Performance* (5.35)*
JVC switched gears from last year, opting for a large single CCD, rather than the three 1/4.5" CCDs in the GZ-MG505. This year’s top-end model offers one 1/2.5" CCD, the largest imager in a consumer camcorder. This resulted in an increased pixel count (good for resolution) as well as expectations for a better low light. Last year’s MG505 has a total gross pixel count of 2,322,540.
