Summary: I purchased this camera for my wife, so that she could have it in her purse for those moments when "I wish I had my camera with me". Everything with the camera and operating it was fine, until it was time to transfer our video to our computer. JVC does not include a disk to download software to a computer, and after trying to download the software from the JVC site using the confusing, convoluted instructions we gave up and called the 1-800 number listed.
Summary: Its fun to use but the upload time to sites like youtube is soooo long. Not the cameras fault but it certainly takes some of the usefulness away. The touch screen sucks ass and I have no clue why every manufacturer seems to be going this route. Sound quality is iffy as well. Im pretty sure this was a consumer reports best buy too.
Summary: The video quality is fine, not great, without zoom in. The video is grainy when zoom in. The picture quality is worse than a cellphone. I think it's just OK for the low price that I paid for after rebate.
Summary: good handy pocket sized camcorder but many phones are as good on the + side i like the auto time lapse setting takes a still every 0.5-40secs up to 2000 times to create a cool time lapse video.
Pros: Pocket size touch screen easy share to youtube and other sites flip out usb handy no wires needed and hdmi cable to play directly into tv if you want
Cons: editing software pre installed on cam ok but not great would prob use another editing s/w
Summary: A camcorder fit for an average user with no real need for high quality. It's sized like an average mobile phone and takes pictures and videos of a similar quality, perfect for gigs, concerts and other social events that you don't want to risk losing (or someone stealing) something expensive A 16Gb card (not included) gets you roughly 3 hours of video and 5500 photos, although rotating the camera for landscape mode quality drops from 5mp to 2.7mp and you'll get nearly...
