MMM Giveaway: JVC Everio Series G Camcorder

I’d like you guys to meet the video camera of my dreams – slim, compact and easy to use (not to mention oh-so-pretty in ruby red) – this JVC Everio Series G camcorder has a built in 60 GB hard drive and also takes Micro SD cards to add even more storage for longer events. Even at the highest quality setting this camera gets 14 hours of film time (which seems like a TON to me) but you can get as much as 75 hours on the economy setting (and more if you have external memory).

I was very happy with the video and audio quality of this camcorder and once I learn all the bells and whistles (or my husband shows them to me) I am pretty sure there will be nothing this camcorder can’t do – like any piece of technology you’ll find that it starts out good and gets better and better the more you play with it. The things my tech savvier husband can do with this camcorder are drool worthy – but for the normal people out there like me – you will still be able to use this camera in any basic capacity and get a video you can be proud of.

Load this camcorder into your high range video editing software and go to town – but if you don’t have that expensive software (I know I don’t) you can edit these videos using the included Everio software or iMovie for you Mac users. I edited some videos using both iMovie on my Mac and the included software from Everio on my in-laws Windows machine and both methods worked well for me – I think you will find the Everio software simpler to understand – perfect for beginner users – with a very easy upload to YouTube option. I think this is great because just getting the camcorder and uploading some videos shouldn’t completely baffle any first time users – it’s simple and to the point (although on a slow computer, keep in mind that the software will be just as slow – this is movie editing after all) and gives you everything you NEED to get started. Then the day that you say, “I love this and want to do MORE!” you can invest in some expensive software.

Here’s a video I took of my son at the park, edited in the Everio software and uploaded directly to YouTube. You will notice a little bit of wind noise, but I found a function in the camcorder which will reduce that noise (wish I’d found it while I was filming!). Still even with the noise, I found my son’s voice was still easy to hear and the video quality was good (although much better in the original high quality – you have to reduce the quality a little bit to upload to YouTube just because of file size – but you’ll find that’s true with any camcorder I think).

It’s all about versatility in my mind – have the file size you want – make the movie lengths you want – make it as complicated and simple as you want – and you can have your choice in color, too! This model camcorder comes in Onyx Black, Sapphire Blue, Ruby Red. They have other higher end models that come in different colors, with slightly different specs (zoom capabilities and memory storage options). And of course JVC makes all sorts of products that can suit any of your gadget needs.

MMM Giveaway: HP 8″ Digital Picture Frame

I love hanging pictures, but sometimes you simply have more pictures than space to hang them all! And the with adding in the cost of printing, and all that wasted paper every time you decide to maybe change out a picture in one of the frames? It can get tedious – especially when in this day and age there is an easier solution – digital picture frames are all the rage right now and this 8″ frame by HP is a fantastic option. Here are some of the fantastic features of this picture frame:

  • Make viewing easy with the intuitive user interface
  • Watch a video or photo slide show while playing your favorite music
  • Enhance your shots and match your décor with the three sets of interchangeable double mats and predesigned digital mats
  • Store up to 1,000 photos with the 512MB built-in memory
  • Display a single photo or a multi-image slide show with the clock and calendar options in Quadrant View
  • Print photos directly to a PictBridge-enabled printer
  • Easily control via the buttons at the top of the frame, as well as the remote

I remember when family members first started showing slide shows of favorite pictures on their computers or TVs during birthday parties, you could watch your family grow up before your eyes through photos, revisiting favorite memories – it’s always a crowd pleaser. The HP Digital Picture Frame takes that idea and turns it on it’s head. You can get that same nostalgic effect right from a picture frame and it’s easy! I can’t wait to load this up for my son’s 3rd birthday party next month!

Want to win an 8″ HP Digital Picture Frame of your own? We’re giving one away to one lucky reader – here’s how you can enter to win:

  1. Tell us what feature of this digital frame you like best. This is mandatory, if not done all other entries will be null and void.
