The JVC GZ-MC200 is the second of the initial JVC Everio 4 Gb MicroDrive based camcorders, and is classified by JVC as a ‘pro-style’ to differentiate it from the MC100 in terms of its marketing position. The bodies of the two differ, with a main differentiation being a rotating grip on the MC200 which has a cube shaped body rather than a ‘traditional’ camcorder body enjoyed by the MC100. This rotating grip allows the camcorder to be used in angles other than square on to the eye.

A large dial on the left of the body is used to select various functions such as playback / record, and a mode button in the centre activates other functionality. All controls are positioned so they naturally fall into your fingers.

Menu navigation system, fast USB 2.0 support, excellent imaging.
Hard to hold because of no strap, only supports 4:3 mode, cost of extra MicroDrives.
