Nothing more than handy-cam

Franklin Guerra, Amazon
27 September 2010
  • 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.

Look for a different camera

  • Summary: Really clear picture. Doesn't capture movement as clear as i would like. Dont even think about not using a tripod the image stabilizer on this thing sucks. The video format it records isn't compatible with anything and it takes a lot of work to convert it to something useful. I would not recommend it. :/ I heard panasonic has a great image stabilizer and records clearer video...

Not a good option for low light condition.

  • Summary: I was very much curious to see my new camcorder. I already have a Sony DCR DVD108 camcorder with me, which is nothing but an SD camcorder but wanted to go for HD with HDD, with all the reading I decided to go for this camcorder. Once I was back from office I thought of taking a tour. I took it out for a shoot.

Pictured wrong product and not a 1080x1440 camcorder

  • Summary: Love the camera although it was advertised as 1080i by 1440 and the picture was that of the HD-7 not the HD-3 Which is not 1080 by 1440. I didn't realize this until after a friend pointed it out and at this point it i had already ordered the camera. So check and make sure the picture info match the info on the website of the manufacturer.

Easy to use. Image clarity good but not great. Zoom & focus are okay. Sucks in low light.

  • Summary: EASY TO USE: If you spend 10-minutes fooling around with the menu and all the buttons, you get the hang of it really quick. I will probably never use the advanced manual functions, but from the look of it manual function menus they seem easy to operate. I would, for this price, expect that there'd be a manual focus ring rather than a screen-based tool for manual focus.
