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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: Adquirí la GZ-HD7EX que vienen a ser la misma pero con posibilidad de enfoque manual de rosca y full HD.. Según el dependiente en cuanto a grabación de HD sobre disco duro era lo mejor que tenían. La estuve probando en casa 1 día y la devolví al día siguiente.
