Worthless without a remote..

Andrew, Amazon
23 April 2012
  • Summary: Do NOT waste your money on this product!! I had an older Everio that I absolutely LOVED so I decided to get another Everio when I needed a new one... BAD choice! Not only is this camera newer, but it has less features!! I contacted JVC customer support and was informed that this camera is not even compatible with a remote so not only does it not include one, but you don't even have the option to get one! Video camera is worthless without a remote.

Lousy camcorder, lousy customer service---ordered from Amazon

Jan, Amazon
19 October 2011
  • Summary: This camcorder had to be returned for repair a few months after I got it. It never did take clear videos. Now, just after the warranty has expired, it will not operate. There was no help from customer support(probably in India) and they will not give me any estimate on the cost or problem. They should warranty it from the time they repaired it. There is no service center in the area. I have wasted over $200 on this hunk of junk!

False Advertisement

very disappointed buyer, Amazon
21 April 2011
  • Summary: The camcorder I received wasn't even the same one being advertised. The only similarity was the color. None of the accessories were included. I got ripped off. There wasn't even a battery included. I bought this for my son and he is very upset. False advertisement really pisses me off.

EXPENSIVE BATTERIES!

Music I Am, Amazon
16 April 2011
  • Summary: It's a great camera, I had zero complaints until I tried to buy some back-up batteries. They are a) hard to find, & b) Very Expensive! Unfortunately I have to say "buyer beware"!

Apple MAC users DO NOT PURCHASE

Chris, Amazon
19 March 2011
  • Summary: Camera seems OK, but the files are proprietary (.MOD and .MOI) format and DO NOT PLAY ON THE MAC. You can't load the included software because it is PC only. There is a function called "Shoot in iTunes Mode", but it STILL requires the PC only software to move the files off the camera! iPhoto and VLC both fail to play the videos. I'm quite computer literate, and I've been trying for an hour to get these to work.

Over-Rated, Over-Stated

Living The Dream "Stitchintime", Amazon
9 January 2011
  • Summary: This is NOT a recently manufactured unit - it is from 2009. Returned first one to Beach Camera..had been opened and used although posed as New. Second one performs the same as the first, so even though first opened, poor performance not due to being used. - narrow blur on recording through the middle right to left, - does NOT record true images, morphing out top to bottom and in side-to-side - objects appear slightly taller slimmer like a fun house mirror image, -...
