Summary: I used to work in tv, and have extensive experience of video cameras. This little jvc promises so much, yet somehow fails to deliver. Three things really irritate, and make it almost useless. 1. The zoom is jerky mechanically and electrically. And the steady shot doesn't really help either.
Summary: YouTube integration, face detection, "laser touch" buttons, 20x optical zoom... these got me second-guessing how great I thought my was. The first thing that grabbed me about this camera was the "One Touch YouTube" feature.
Summary: I like the size. It is very compact. But this is where the good ends. The image quality is not so good, certainly not worth the money. The zoom is kind of jumpy, and low light performance is nonexistent. Even at the highest quality setting, the video quality is still so poor and grainy.
