Camcorder is OK, but DO NOT buy from JVC - terrible reliability and horrible customer service

Summary: I bought this camcorder from Amazon.com in February 2010 for around $330. Its hardly September 2010 now (6 mths), and I noticed that a blue colored dot was appearing near the center of the viewfinder LCD screen in every mode (be it just viewfinding, or recording video or taking images). The recorded videos (.mod files) also showed the blue dot.

Summary: This camcorder seemed on first reading to be just what I was looking for - then I noticed the wording "2 lithium ion batteries required". Really? not included then? Or are they? I've no way of telling and no way of contacting the vendor (todo! todo!) so I just had to walk away. What a way to run a business...
