Summary: The video quality this camcorder shoots is not truly 1080p. See the CNET review at http://www.cnet.com/products/jvc-everio-gz-hm300/2/ for further details. The files do get saved as 1920x1080 pixels, and they are played back as such, but the video itself is not *recorded* in this many pixels.
Summary: This was purchased to use for our local football league to make DVD's of each players game. It is simple to use right out of box. Download software a little tough at first but nothing an average person could not do, just requires reading instructions.
Very nice, very capable, needs a far more robust battery

Summary: This unit is superb. I have no complaints about it other than the batteries you can buy for it are really lacking the power required for them to be truly compatible with the unit. This seems to be a pervasive problem in the camcorder market regardless of the manufacturer involved.
