Summary: This is my second one! The best feature is that the unit does not use a touch screen. I use the camera to record events in the construction field, lots of dust and grit. The last thing you want to do is drag a finger over the screen! The quality of the images is very good for this level of camcorder. I routinly slow the images in third part software and project the images ; the quality is more than adequate even when several feet accross.
Summary: BEST CAMCORDER I HAVE EVER OWNED!! Honestly, it is the best buy I have ever bought.gdfjrgeiohnrgoaehrgoujhrgeoujhregaouhrageuohraegougreajhrggfukadjhfgasdjhgfsuifsghirugdhgreaiurgeyrfhegrihugfvejhkvfjhvbdfhjgsdfajhvfdhfgadsygfabafshudafsgvfewgvdfashgvrfaghvdfassdfugysdfgasdfhiggdsfghjdsfghdsfaghofsdaghdsfgsdfggjfddsfgjdsgjfdsfgjdsfgdasfhgjladsfjgdsfa
Summary: My very first impression of the JVC NM200 was that it was very small, and that first impression has stuck with me. Every time I use it I'm reminded that it is about a 1/3 smaller than the other previous generation camcorders I've used. However, don't let the size fool you, this guy is packed with features and is easily the best camcorder I've ever owned. First off, the Excellent: 1.
Summary: This is my first Camcorder and I have to say I am REALLY happy with this. The picture quality is amazing and when I upload videos to either my computer or Playstation 3, the high-definition footage may not be up to the same quality as a few documentaries I have on Blu-Ray or HD DVD, but it is easily the crispest footage I've seen shot from an camcorder. It's also very easy to upload to either system and to Youtube.
Summary: It's been a number of years since I had a camcorder. It was a tape unit, and after the initial infatuation with the new toy, I found that I never used it. Recording was a chore (juggling tapes and batteries), uploading was tedious, and the quality wasn't all that good. For quick ad hoc recordings, my various digital still cameras could grab a few seconds of good-enough video. The camcorder disappeared from my life. A few years later, things have really changed.
Extreme portability, good quality - not true HD, though!

Summary: I had been looking for a digital camcorder for some time, waiting until the "right" device came along. I saw this one advertised in Sports Illustrated, looking not much bigger than a baseball. True 1920x1080, plus up to two 16GB SDHC cards, plus 20x optical zoom with a good-quality lens - all these added up to being irresistable for me. Ordered from Amazon, along with two 16GB SDHC cards and a spare battery. Unit came with one free 8GB SDHC card.
Summary: This particular camera is a great buy for those looking for an alternative to hard disc drive (HDD) cameras that can run more than $400 USD. This camera was rated Camcorderinfo.com 's 2009 mid-range camcorder of the year. It has excellent color accuracy in bright light and fair accuracy in lower lights. It lacks a night vision mode, but does come with an okay light.
Summary: I don't own one, I borrowed one. It blew me away, at least compared to the cam I was using, a Canon FS100 that cost about $100 more a year ago.In daylight or dim light, it was almost HD quality.The sound was FAR superior to the Canon.I was using this to record local live bands, up close, moving around a lot, and it got great sound where my Canon wouldn't.
