Poor Build quality and even wirse after sales service

Russell Warner, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: False advertising, as they say it does manual shutter speed which it does not in high speed mode. I had it in writing from JVC that it did. Decidied to keep it as HD quality was good but Touch screen picture intermitant after 4 months. Spent 4 months in their repair centre wating for parts. Sent back not with touch screen no longer working and touch screen function completely gone. Warranty only 45 days!!!!!

nice features but stay away!

FrozenSea, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Positive: -The slow motion is definitively something nice to have-The DSLR shape resulted in a very intuitive control layout.-Pretty good on closeups. -Made for shooting sports.Negative-Slow motion is a cool feature but is capable to record at very low (almost useless) video quality. It's true though that you can choose a not-that-fast-frame-per-seconds, but what's the point to have this camcorder, then?
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Zoom
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light, Poor Still Image

Poor user documentation

James E. Nichols, Amazon
26 August 2013
  • Summary: This unit certainly deserves more than one star, but I purchased it for its advertised ability to link with a tablet computer and replay videos in slow motion. The connection is made, not by Bluetooth, but wifi. What really disappoints me is that none of this is documented. None of the reviews that I saw online prepared me for this; I haven't found anything online that explains how these features work.

Does NOT do what it is advertised to do

Amazon Customer "Big Wazoo", Amazon
21 July 2013
  • Summary: The *primary* purpose for this camcorder per JVC's marketing material is in-field video analysis. Review their website, and you'll see the analysis section prominently highlighted and featuring their Cam Coach App which supposedly lets you review high speed video out on the field to help in your coaching. WRONG. The only video playback available instantly is 640p video @ 30fps. Please tell me how that is useful? I can do that with an Eye-Fi SD card.

RISULTATO MEDIOCRE

BERNARDO SIMONCINI, amazon.it
8 August 2014
  • Summary: LA VIDEO CAMERA NELLA MODALITA' VIDEO RALLENTATE ( MOTIVO DEL MIO ACQUISTO ) RISULTA DI SCARSO UTILIZZO LE IMMAGINI RISULTANO ESSERE SFOCATE E ILLEGGIBILI - NON SI CAPISCE L ' UTILITA' DELLA FUNZIONE . NEL COMPLESSO LA VIDEO CAMERA PER IL VALORE ECONOMICO E' DA CONSIDERASI MEDIO ALTO.

Gutes Bild, schlechte Verarbeitung.

Dalli Klick, Amazon
31 May 2014
  • Summary: Die Bildqualität konnte überzeugen, die Verarbeitung konnte es nicht. Was mich besonders ärgerte: Kleinste Schräubchen standen am Kameraboden ab, was besonders bei präzises filmen mit Stativ störte. Der Monitor ist nur sehr schwer zu schwenken, der Sucher taugt überhaupt nichts, zeigt ein sehr schlechtes Bild. Knöpfe sehr schlecht angeordnet. Die Kamera konnte mich nicht überzeugen, der Preis ist zu hoch für diese Verarbeitung.
