JVC just unveiled their new Everio GZ-MC500 digital camera at a dealer conference in Prague, which they claim is the
world's smallest 3CCD camcorder. The GZ-MC500 is about the same size as JVC's earlier
GZ-MC200, but sports a more professional-type design with
lots of added buttons and dials. In addition to the 3CCD chip, the Everio has a 10x optical zoom lens and stores
video on a 4GB internal hard drive (6 and 8GB drives will be available later this year). The camera should street in
March for 1500 Euros (or just under $2,000 US).
