Summary: We have had this unit for a year now and are pretty disappointed for the money we paid. We upgraded to this JVC hd model from a Panasonic minidv that was great. First indoors the camcorders light is nearly useless at more than three feet.
Summary: I purchased this a few months ago, and am not very happy with it. Operationally and functionally it works fine. However, I'm not at all happy with the quality of the videos/pictures. I had a small digital I bought for $125 and the video quality is the same.
Summary: I actually read all of the reviews posted here about this camera before I bought it. I noticed that there were some serious issues right out of the box with the "Low Light" quality. Then I noticed that the "Fix" offered by one of my fellow reviewers didn't do anything...
Summary: We got this camera on sale . . . now I know why. The software is slowly ruining our Gateway. It removed a decoder feature we had connected to one program and now we can't get it back w/o calling a hardware specialist. The video is grainy. Shooting in doors is terrible.
Summary: When I first saw this camera on Amazon I honestly thought I'd found the dream camera. The price was good for the features that were offered. However, I soon realised that the JHV GZ-M21E was far from a dream-like...
Excerpt: I just brought my JVC Everio GZ-MG21 HDD Camcorder because I want to use it to film my boy birthday party. I had film non stop over one and half hour. I downloaded into my PC and follow the sample instruction to edit the footage and burn to the DVD. I found the quality of my DVD was very good.
Pros: Small and compact size. Easy to use. Stylish and look business.
