Everio GZMG255 Highlights
Over 37 hours of video and nearly 10,000 photos The internal large capacity hard disk drive stores over 7 hours (30GB model) of DVD-movie quality video or over 37 hours in Economy mode. And no matter which image size you choose, you can shoot nearly 10,000 stills with plenty of space left for your videos.
Compact and lightweight design With a 1.8-inch hard disk drive built-in, its lightweight compactness is not constrained by the size of videocassette or disc media, nor does it require a space-consuming loading mechanism. That's why most Everio models are able to weigh in at less than 1 pound including battery.
Gigabrid engine for high-quality video and stills The redesigned image processor for Everio G series incorporates 6 digital noise reduction systems to improve the S/N ratio by about 30 percent (3dB) over previous models. The integrated MPEG-2 encoder features circuitry that reduces the block noise and mosquito noise that can occur with digital video recording formats. It's assurance that all of those Gigabytes of video and photos you shoot will offer the best picture quality available for each recording mode.
34x optical zoom The GZ-MG130 is equipped with an industry-leading 34x optical zoom for incredible magnification with full optical quality. Digital zoom takes you up to 800x.
MPEG-2 DVD-quality video Using high quality MPEG-2 data compression, you can record DVD-Movie quality video. A new buffer accommodates suddenly moving objects. As well, the "turbo" variable bit rate system maintains a high average close to 8.5 Mbps, but increases sharply for dynamically moving scenes.
Hard disk drive protection and stability To safeguard the Hard Disk Drive from shocks and vibrations, Everio G camcorders incorporate the latest Hard Disk protection technologies.
Floating Suspension (Shock Absorbers) Effectively dampens vibrations through polymer shock absorbers, allowing active camcorder use.
Gravity Sensor System (Drop Detection) Automatically senses sudden acceleration such as in a free fall situation. The camera power is turned off and the writing head is disengaged to avoid disk damages*.
*This function does not guarantee protection of hard disk against all instances of droppage and physical impact.
SD memory card slot All Everio models also have a slot for SD Memory Card so you can store videos and stills on this commonly available memory card. SDHC Memory Card is also supported for higher capacity and higher speed.
