The Everio GZ-MS120 retains the half-decent image quality which made its predecessor a contender, and adds one or two extra features. JVC should also be commended for the fact that the Everio GZ-MS120 doesn't appear to come with a price increase, unlike most of the new camcorders we have seen this year. It arrives at much the same cost as its predecessor did at launch, which makes it relatively better value. However, you can still pick up JVC's own Everio GZ-MG330, for under £300. With its 30GB hard disk and similar image quality, it remains the best buy if you're on a tight budget.
