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.
Pros: I owned this for a 1 week, and have to exchange for Sony. Everything is ok exccept the stabitility control. It not stable as it advertise. I would not buy any from JVC again. Go for Sony branch is much better which is Neweggs doesn't carry.
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.
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.
