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.
Summary: I was looking for a camcorder which had multiple features: Good playback qualities on computer or TV, sharp pause and slow motion features, a good size camera screen for instant viewing, and especially... an analog connector, allowing me to attach to an underwater camera, and then have the ability to connect to the computer or TV screen. This product had all of the features. I am very pleased with the purchase.
Summary: I had bought the JVC Everio GZ-MG670 80GB HDD Camcorder (Black) at a great price. I even received it in a few days which was much faster than predicted... The camera its self is great. Easy to use and in about 15 minutes of playing around with it figured out how to use everything.. Its very comfortable and lightweight. I did have a problem when I received mine. After a few phone calls to JVC Support they said I had to send mine in for repair.
Summary: Easy to operate !!! The only downfall -- takes too much time when uploading vid from cam to computer; the cam is designed to upload to itunes..., which is fine..., just takes time because the vids have to be converted from JVC's format to itunes/YOUR computer's format... Other-than that, BUY this Camera !!!
Summary: This is actually a teen's review. I got this camcorder just over eight months ago and I love it! I'm a hobbyist videoer, so it's wonderful! The battery life is okay(two hours), but I have the biggest one available on order right now. JVC BN-VF823U 2190-mAh Rechargeable Data Battery for JVC MiniDV and Everio Camcorders It's a little pricey, but worth it. Okay, back to the camcorder. The software is lame.
Summary: I love this camera. It is easy to use. Download to a disc or computer is simple (I have windows 7). playback on TV is very easy. The only thing I would recommend would be to have an extra charged battery on hand. You get about an hour and a half of charged time. If you can plug your camera in to an outlet to video, even better. The quality of video is great too.
