JVC Everio


Alan in TN

Question

I've thinking about the JVC Everio hard drive video camera. I read that stores in MPEG2-SP format but uses and extension of MOD. I read conflicting reviews that suggest the extension can be changed and 3rd party software, i.e. EMC 8 can load it as any other MPEG2 file. Does any thing know for certain.

 

Second, since the hard drive cameras are a hard drive; is there a model that can be directly accessed via XP or VISTA?

Thanks for the feedback. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving,

Alan

Did you skip the word "buying" in the first sentence? Search these forums for that camera and for the MOD extension.

 

The only thing I would caution about is to be diligent in transferring the videos to your computer . There is no way to pop in another hard drive if you run out of free space. :o

If you are serious about a video camera, I would have to say that any video camera that uses miniDV tapes is better than that JVC.
