Summary: I purchased this mainly for online review videos and videos of my kids. Now this isn't the best camera out there, but for HD this one isn't bad. The basic Ease of use is some simplistic and intuitive it's GREAT! Menu Setup is a little jumbled in my opinion. You get about an hour recording time on average depending on the quality you choose. But I am happy what I got. I wanted a small Digital Camcorder with no Tapes I could take with me that was good quality.
Summary: This is a sleek camcorder and works well as i had expected. There are some cons as well. The lens cover, we already lost ours during an international trip. JVC should have integrated it inside the camcorder. The HD video capture in the highest resolution needs a software converter to create a DVD. The DVD created using the software bundled with the camcorder resulted in jittery video and audio that lagged behind.
