The JVC Everio G shakes the short recording time and so-so picture quality that dogged earlier tapeless camcorders. It records seven hours of DVD-quality MPEG-2 video (or longer at lower quality) straight onto a built-in 30-gigabyte hard drive. Offload video to your PC and burn it to DVD, no conversion required. 2.6 x 2.8 x 4.3 inches; 0.71 pound; $1,000
