Summary: I bought this as a tooling around town cam as it's lightweight and compact...The screen is clear and easy to navigate and mine has good battery life...My biggest complaint however is the slippery exterior!...It is beyond ridiculous that the outer materials make this cam prone to slipping out of your hands but JVC did send me a textured replacement front piece so that was a good thing
Summary: Pros: Easy to set up and get started. Lightweight. No need to buy a ton of batteries as it quickly charges with the USB cord. Easy enough for kids to use and with the price, I have little to complain about. I bought this for my daughter for her 9th birthday and she has played with it almost daily since. It has a couple extra video editing options I didn't expect for the price. All in all, I would buy it again with no hesitation.
Summary: I can't complain. This DVR is a good selection for less than $100. The pix and video it takes are good quality. It does actually work under water! I purchased this DVR so I could have a somewhat disposable time lapse platform to use in a harsh, industrial environment. I have exposed this camera to grease, water, broken, powdered glass, and the concrete floor. It has survived all of this with only scratches.
Summary: I thought the movies will take less space on the SD card than a regular camera, but I was wrong. The touch screen is not very sensitive to touch, therefore have to tap harder. I haven`t really tried it a lot so far. I guess being waterproof it will come handy at a certain point.
Summary: I bought two of these, one for my wife and one for my daughter. There are two reasons that I didn't give it a full 5 stars. First, the buttons are hard to press on the side and the touch screen is not sensitive at all, sometimes you have to press on it a few times to choose what you want. The second reason is it doesn't come with an HDMI cord, which you need to play back your videos in HD directly from the camera to the TV. Overall though, a decent video camera.
Summary: PRO's:It is waterproof,big screen.CON's:Short battery life,touchscreen is problematic,mid quality stereo sound.Sorry JVC ,this camcorder needs some serios work.For the price 60$ camcorder is OK.
