A Decent Camcorder For a Good Price.

S. Traversi "contraversi", Amazon
26 December 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this camcorder around 5 years ago. It works great and is easy to use but the software that comes with it is useless and horrible. I use a MacBook Pro with Final Cut to edit video which needs a firewire connection to import video. I was a bit surprised that the camera doesn't have a firewire, only USB. I ended up buying a Canopus A/V converter and using the RCA cables & S-video on the camera, I connect it to the Canopus.

A very good choice!

Luciano Palma "Luciano Palma", Amazon

  • Summary: This cam is excellent. Small sized, good image quality, excellent luminosity (1.2), even if the image gets a bit "grainy" in low light condition. The reasons for not getting the 5th star are: - No USB streaming (you cannot use it as a webcam or capture image in "realtime" - You NEED to buy an extra, larger battery - No viewfinder - Bad software.

HORRIBLE PURCHASE

Phillip Mikrevice "EPS III", Amazon
2 January 2009
  • Summary: BEWARE!!! DO NOT PURCHASE THIS MODEL! The software that comes with it will NOT allow you to burn your own DVD's with your own computer. It creates errors with Windows that are not easily traceable. I have had two professional computer people look at it and neither one could burn DVD's without fixing some of the errors in the software provided.

Compact unit, great pictures, and durable!

J. Guilette, Amazon
30 November 2008
  • Summary: I have had this JVC camera for two years, and I absolutely love it. Yes, I had to figure out that you need to use the director software first and then the producer software to create your DVDs. The battery that came with mine wasn't the longest life, so I would recommend a spare with a longer life. BUT, HERE'S MY FAVORITE PART: This summer I accidentally left this camcorder outside on a jacket along with my Kodak digital still camera. It rained.

Beware of the software

Bobm0001, Amazon
3 August 2008
  • Summary: This is a wonderful camera. I purchased it and took it on my long-planned trip through Europe in 2006. Upon return, I downloaded the pictures using the Cyberlink Power Producer software. I worked on the pictures, then saved them until I had time to return and finish my sorting, renaming, etc. When I returned, the pictures were missing. I found a file with the correct extension, but the software wouldn't open it.

Klunky, Proprietary and Unreliable; Worst Camera I've ever used

Marvin Migl, Amazon
26 April 2008
  • Summary: About the only redeeming quality it has is that it does, in fact, record video. Other than that, I find numerous flaws and have multiple complaints. It is a camera that I record video _in spite of_. 1. My camera eats batteries very quickly. If a battery is left in the camera for more than two weeks, it becomes useless. I now have about five dead batteries thanks to this camera. It seems that every time I need to record something the battery is dead.

JVC Everio camcorder

  • Summary: It wasn't actually as cool as I thought it would be. The volume isn't that loud and it doesnt have any cool features. Not exactly what I expected. It could have been better. If I hadn't waited so long to return it, I just might have. Sorry guys.
