Summary: I purchased this camera as a gift to a missionary in Uganda. I have heard that he is using it constantly, and thoroughly enjoying it. W. Scott Moore Author of "Dead Ends or Destiny? Seven Paths through the Wilderness Experiences of Life.
Summary: I purchased this inexpensive little standard definition (SD) camcorder for my wife to use while visiting Venice, Florence, and Rome in Italy. It does exactly what it is advertised to do, and it does it all very well. What a pleasant surprise it has been to use this camcorder. I purchased the extra (larger) battery when ordering and it is is not very much larger or heavier than the smaller one that comes with the camera.
Economical, easy-to-use, standard definition flash memory camcorder

Summary: This JVC standard definition camcorder has worked very well. It was my first camcorder purchase. The SD video is of quite decent quality. The camera is small and light. It has many fine automatic features, such as anti-shake, good low light recording, and motion detection. I suggest buying a second battery of longer duration to swap in. Negatives: the user interface, a blue-lighted touch strip on the outer edge of the LCD viewer, is fiddly and not that easy to manage.
