A Decent Camcorder For a Good Price.

S. Traversi "contraversi", Amazon

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Summary: the camera is really small and has lots of features. the problem is that the software is not supported by VISTA. the software is Power DVD and the actual company is in Taiwan so support is impossible. I am working on using my camera thru Windows Movie Maker and have had some luck. the audio is surprising and crisp! the process to use is very complex and requires lots and lots of study but could be worth it.

Even the cave man can do it

J. Ahonen, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera is very easy to use, takes just minutes to get going. Good value for the money, but still pictures are a joke, sound quality and settings could be better and transferring clips from camera to PC is from 80s. Excellent picture quality in this price class in normal conditions, but will take a bit more practise to learn different settings e.g. for bright back light or reflecting light. Buy an extra battery if you decide to go with this JVC.

It is also a great snap shot camera

  • Summary: Going to a HDD camcorder from a miniDV camcorder was like going from a film camera to a digital camers. The camera will also record directly to SD memory cards. (about 50+ minutes of normal quality video on a 2GB card) I would recommend getting an extra battery and external charger. I paid about $42 for a 1400mah battery and charger. having short battery run time and built in charger is just plain stupid on the part of JVC.
