Pretty good camera for trips, you need a better battery though

Herge Watterson, Amazon

  • Summary: The quality is awesome, the ergonomics is just super (the four way stick in the LCD for starters), the transfer capabilities are nice (just plug it in to ANY PC and it becomes an external hard drive with video files, although you have to rename the .MOD to .MPG), and the zoom/frame rate is great.

  • Summary: The 5 main reasons I purchased this camcorder: 1) Size. It's barely larger than a can of soda!!! 2) Hard drive. Nice not to not ever have to buy blank tapes or discs. 3) Ease of use. The controls are well designed. Had most everything figured out in no time.

  • Summary: I bought this camera before going on a recent cruise with the intention of documenting my trip through video. This is a great camcorder for making home videos. I took video during some of the shows that I went to on the cruise and the audio quality was fantastic.

Really like it. But important to read the instructions.

  • Summary: Just got this camera recently. I'd read a number of reviews suggesting the image quality wasn't too hot, but thought I'd give it a try as I'm really tired of trying to keep track of all the little tapes I've accumulated over the years.

Tiny camcorder... Big HDD... Easy functions... = 5 Stars!

  • Summary: Ok, I bought this for a Christmas present for my wife and she loves it. The first thing you notice is how small it is... I mean it's tiny! When I first heard about these I checked for reviews on them and the two sites I found reviews on both had mediocre scores.

Much easier to use than DV tape camcorders but...

Sea Monkey, Amazon
22 May 2006
  • Summary: A good camcorder but quality of video image not quite as good as DV tape, even in good light. Low light capabilities also not as good,, even with gain up - the lenses in the better Everio units with the 15x zoom may be better in this regard.

Excellent camera and high quality video

  • Summary: I bought this camera and I just love it. Forget about the issues some people mention here about low quality video, the trick is to change the camera settings for the environment you are recoding in.

Not bad, definitely well worth the price I paid.

J. Cook, Amazon
22 May 2006
  • Summary: First off, I want to say that the camera shoots pretty good footage outdoors, not at all superb quality, but passable for just archiving personal footage. Indoors is another story, out of the box the low-light conditions pretty much blacked out the playback.

JVC Does Not Stand Behind Their Products - JVC Lemoncorder

A German Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 May 2006
  • Summary: I agree with the many other users who have experienced the "Condensation, Operation Paused" defect on their JVC GR-XXX. Despite numerous others reporting this problem, JVC says its not a recognized problem. I would disagree - it is a recognized problem, but its your problem, not theirs.
