JVC's HDD based Everio line has always been promising, but you know we're always pining for more room for video, especially in a camera with no way to swap in more media when you're running out of space. Well they're giving up the good stuff with their new 30GB GZ-MG37 and MG77 cameras, and to a lesser extent with the 20GB MG21 and MG27. No HD in sight -- unlike the Sanyo HD1 we spied today -- but the top of the line MG77 rocks a 2.3 megapixel CCD, a 2.7-inch LCD, and a 10x optical zoom, while everyone else does the 32x for zoom but with sadder 680k CCDs. At the highest quality, the 30GB models record 7 hour of video, while the 20GB version scores you 4.5 hours. Not too shabby, but you know how we do, we're already tapping our toes for some 100GB perpendicular drives up in these.
