Summary: Like most said about the good parts. I only mentioned some parts for you to consider whether this is the one you need. Poor design for handling the camcorder. Unlesss you shoot still all the time otherwise it is pretty much two-hand operationds needed. NOT too good ZOOM stabilization(I think this is one of the weakest points of this cam). Because the cam is too light so any tiny movement will make the video looks bad therefore A STRONGER (Better like OIS)is needed.
Summary: I was disappointed with the snap shots. When reviewing them on the T.V. or computer they came out extremely grainy. I tried changing every setting on the camera and was unsuccessful. As far as video hd quality. I am more than satisfied. I purchased many attachment lenses. I wouldn't do it again, because I never use them, and the telephoto does not make a big difference at all. The only one that is kinda cool is the fish eye lens.

Summary: Length:: 2:37 Mins I'll get right to it. I feel the JVC Everio GZ-HM200BU is a good consumer grade HD videocamera for the enthusiast who values portability and does a lot of outdoor recording. It is not best suited for shooting indoors in artificial light and in close-up situations, or for quick and easy uploading to the web. LIKES: 1) Great quality HD video. I use it at the second to highest setting with excellent results.
Summary: I bought this camera and used it about 10 times before it quit working. The lens cover would not open when I opened the LCD monitor. This is my second JVC camera (I had a VHS-C camcorder before) and I've had expensive problems VERY early on. I like the camera just fine but I do expect it to perform beyond 10 times before having problems! Not reliable and ridiculous for a $500 camera (that's what I paid).
Summary: This camera is an amazing camera. It has GREAT quality. Works with imovie. But if you do video editing like me and use anything of apples editing products other than imovie like Final Cut this camera is NOT compatible with it. You can not access the raw files, just imovie picks it up. But if not, and you are a mac user, and use iMovie you are fine.
Summary: The good: it's small, fast, has very clear picture; it has room for two cards and they're easy to install. The bad: indoors, it gets the white balance very wrong and consistently underexposes. Mac compatibility is a bit of a joke, it works with imovie as long as you plug the camera (not the card) in and are very very patient as it takes around 5-10 minutes to recognize the camera after you go through the odd step of selecting "play back to computer.
Summary: I desperately wanted to fall in love with this camera and keep it. It's cheap (lower pricing for black), small, felt comfortable, has great outdoor pictures, has a genius strap design and took 2 SDHC cards. The menus are intuitive, convenient, the laser bar on the side is fun to use and the camera overall is just fun. The problem came when I wanted to get some indoor videos. They looked great on the small viewscreen.
Summary: JVC GZ HM200 camcorder Critique In poor light, image may be acceptable but grainy or else hopelessly dim and grainy. This camera really needs strong outdoor light. If the user wants to make indoor video clips or photos, forget it, domestic lighting is not good enough, even daylight through windows may not be enough. JVC does not seem to have heard of 720p resolution. A lot of people have 720p high definition (high def. / HD) TVs.
Summary: Als ich den Camcorder nach 3 Wochen zurückschicken musste lag es daran, das hohe Pfeiftöne vom Mikrofon kommen und die versprochenen 50p nur hochgepushte 50i sind. Desweiteren hat sie sehr starke Schwächen im Dunkel. Das bewirkt das die Aufnahmen stark ruckeln und zum größten Teil verpixeln.
Summary: Habe den Camcorder vor 1 Woche erwoben. Zunächst macht die Kamera einen guten Eindruck. Die Verarbeitung ist makellos. Das Bild in HD-Qualität überzeugend. Jedoch sollte man von Innenaufnahmen nicht zuviel erwarten. Der Camcorder bietet viele Möglichkeiten. Leider muss man feststellen, dass die Menueführung gewöhnungsbedürftig und kompliziert ist.
