All round good camera

  • Excerpt: This camera feels great to hold onto for shooting video from many positions, thanks to the multi-angled view screen. However none of the positions face forward. Much better ergonomically than shooting video with a DSLR but still small and looks like a good tourist camera, as opposed to a pro camera. The touch screen menu is very responsive and menu layout is easy to navigate.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization

Great sports teaching tool without breaking the bank.

  • Summary: Used primarily for our ski and snowboard school and packs a lot of features in a small unit. The WiFi to tablet, smart phone or external WiFi monitor and operating remotely are excellent features we use extensively through a JVC app that is easy to install. May not work with all tablet models so just look it up. Only 4 stars because for the cost, 120fps-240fps should be at 720p and not below.

Glad I bought the camera

  • Excerpt: Took a chance on the camera to use for online broadcasting. Was I surprised. It took to the internet like a fish to water. It's light and is very versatile. It's gives the larger cameras a run for it's money. It's perfect for a shoot where you need extra cameras. I bought two and can't complain.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Zoom range/performance

Very good camcorder footage, poor still image quality~ read on!

Steve Nunez "www.stevenunez.com", Amazon

  • Summary: Very good video quality- not good at stills.......quality is just not there as a still camera- which is ashamed as it has very nice controls. As a video camera it's very sharp but produces chromatic aberration (purple fringing around highlight areas)....most people wouldn't notice it but I'm a pixel peeper and video enthusiast and noticed the CA around highlighted areas. It tends to overexpose footage by .7EV, I suggest using -.7 ev and your footage will look very nice.

Unique video camera

Sunshine, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I bought this product for sub video camera. Well I expect for several functions. but some of them don't or terrible. Hot shoe. What a good point. Only this video camera has shot shoe in consumer camcorder. You can expand with many accessories especially microphone. Unique design. because of the battery's location, this camcorder looks longer or kind of gun style. Doesn't effect your handling. Touch screen. Half awesome and half worst.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Poor In Low Light, Poor Sound

Nice camera with a broken PC software

  • Summary: [Please read the update below] This is a very nice camera, with an even better video quality (can't beat 60p). This feature however is its major issue. I only record in 60 progressive (it is the main reason I bought it after all) and after an hour or two of recording you realize that you need 2 [or better 5] SD cards, so a very natural decision was to create Blu-ray discs and reuse the SD cards.

Expensive but worth it

avwtp, Amazon
11 July 2013
  • Summary: I shoot all my video outdoors and usually in direct sun so a view finder in mandatory even though PX-100 has the best LCD screen/shield I've ever seen. The camcorder switches between finder and screen via a button on the left side of the viewer. My only issues with the design is that the viewfinder eyepiece doesn't come far enough back from the camera backing so my nose (it's big) is always in the way and I have to use it with my head tilted to the side.
