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

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.
Summary: JVCs are great if you don't need any accessories or never need customer service. if you do you are in trouble. I bought a JVC video recorder last year and despite it being new it came without most of the accessories offered with it--things you'll probably need such as the cable to connect it to the TV and the one to connect it to the computer.

L'unica possibilità è utilizzare il bilanciamento del bianco in manuale e continuare a tenere sotto controllo l'impostazione del tipo di luce (esterna, alogena, nuvole, ...
