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.
Makes useless .TOD files, and therefore, useless camera

Summary: I bought this as a second camera for some corporate testimonials. It has been a huge pain trying to find any of the features I need, if they exist at all. The autofocus is choppy and never really locks on. So, usability, pretty terrible. But even on top of that, back at my computer, I try importing the videos into Final Cut Express 4 (FCE), and the files are the silly and useless .TOD files (why no .MOVs, JVC?).
Pros: Absolutely none. Like the other comment on this website it is a worthless paperweight. Never ever take the risk and buy a JVC product.
Cons: this camcorder runs TOD files which will NOT work on your computer, even if brand new. You will then call JVC where they WILL NOT support the worthless product. THE PEOPLE AT JVC ARE CRIMINALS AND SHOULD BE PROSECUTED.
