  • Summary: I bought this camcorder about a year ago and haven't used it much... just been taking video here and there. Now I'm ready to do some editing and the file format it records to, .MOD is not recognized by any program except the lame video editing program it comes with.

  • Summary: My first experience in using the video and still funtions were very disapointing and I assumed it was a bad camera. I sent it to JVC for repair and after 3 months and my demanding phonecalls, they replaced the camera with a new one. Again, total dissapointment. I can't see any difference in quality.
  • Pros: Nice small size, easy to use.
  • Cons: Terrible still pictures, and the anti-shake function on the video mode is useless. Video quality is fair at best. Need to use a tri-pod if you want a nice smooth video. My older analog Hi-8 camera produces a better quality video picture and the anti-shake function actually works.
