Summary: This camera is a decent camera. What makes it great for me is it's ability to add-on. It has a powered microphone jack (3.5mm), an external av jack (3.5mm) which I use for headphones. It has a usb port, hdmi, and ilink. What I love even more is the way the camera handles colors and lighting. In low light, it needs a-tweekin'. Keep the scene lit properly, give'r a small adjustment, and you're good to go. The grain is acceptable and even adds a classic style to it.
Summary: i just picked this up, i have no complaints. i am a pickey kind of person, and this is my first camcorder, i like how everything is easy to use with my mac, just rename files. dont use the program (that i never got) its easy to use with windows too. if your expecting a crazy super pro cam, go pay the money for it. i got mine local for $110 and its much better then anything i say at bestbuy or target/walmart.
Summary: I GOT THE CAMERA ON TIME BUT WAS DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE WHEN I POWEWRED THE CAMERA ON THE SMALL MONITOR ON THE CAMERA WHICH YOU LOOK INTO TO TAKE YOUR VIDEO WHEN IT FIRST COMES ON IS UPSIDE DOWN. AFTER 60 SECONDS IT FIXES ITSELF RIGHT SIDE UP BUT I AM POSITIVE THE SELLER KNEW THE CAMCORDER HAD THIS PROBLEM WHEN SELLING IT TO ME.

Summary: I love this camera! Best video camera I have ever owned. Besides the bad low light recording (in most cameras)this camera is easy to use, and has great picture quality as well as video recording quality. Big bonus in the external mic port which allows you to use an external microphone for recording excellent sound.
Summary: I bought this camera by the description of the amazon page or what JVC says, although they are not lies, it's not much more than any other handy-cam (and for the price :s). Yes, the video is HD and has many hours on the hard drive, but the battery does not last long enough for a birthday party. Has 3CCD and a big lens that lets in more light, connections for microphone, USB and FireWire, but it's so easy/difficult to handle as any other handy-cam.
Summary: Good camera. Takes good still pics and video. Video is a lot better in well lit areas or outside. The biggest downfall to me is the video is scripted in a rare format. Basically, if you want to download the video to your CPU, you will need to convert the format to mpeg or similar. Otherwise you will not be able to view or edit the video on the computer.
Summary: I bought this Video Camera a month before just for a Trip to Peru Last Year..While I was on the plane arriving to the city of Cuzco from Lima I was filming the magnificent view that I had from my window when suddenly it just cut off. then I turned back on...then it gave a message Error Message.. I panicked first! I didn't really paid any attention to the message...I just turn it off completely.. When I arrived to the Hotel I turned it back on..
Summary: This is my 3rd 'family' camcorder and the best one thus far. When my son started playing high school football it only took me one season to realize that the current camcorder wasn't getting the job done. Not only that but the conversion from tapes to DVD was SO painful. I did a lot of research on what I was going to need to shoot action movement at night. For the money that I was willing to spend this was the camera that came out on top.
