BAD EXPERIENCE BECAUSE ALLREADY USED DEVICE PRODUCT!!!!!!!
3 July 2011
Summary: THE CAMCORDER ITSELF WAS AVERY BAD EXPERIENCE,PROBABLY BECAUSE WHEN PURCHASE WAS ALLREADY USED AND WASN'T TOLD ABOUT IT HAD PASS ELECTRONIC TECHNICAL ISSUES!!!!ESPECIALLY THE VERY SHORT LIFE OF BATTERY USE DIES VERY QUICKLY AND THE FOCUS OF FACE DETECTIONS WAS VERY BAD!!!!!
Summary: Small and sleek, great picture quality and sound. The 40x zoom is amazing, I could read the small print on signs about half of a block or more away. Easy to use, you just open the viewing screen and it turns on automatically. Very user friendly. I have upgraded from a disc recording camcorder, and the hard drive on this JVC is so convenient. We bought it for our church to record preaching services. It's a great tool.
