Summary: good older camcorder .already had one with a bad screen , so i bought this one , it had a bad transport but a good screen so i took two and made one . now i have a good working camcorder it's a vhs-c as i said it's and older one but a good one.
Summary: I WAS DISSATISFIED WITH THE CAMCORDER FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS: I FOUND OUT AFTER RECEIVING THE CAMCORDER THAT THE VOLUME-ZOOM BUTTON WAS MISSING,IF YOU READ THE SELLER'S AD THEY FAILED TO MENTION SPECIFICALLY THIS DEFECT.FOUR PHOTOS WERE PRESENTED IN THE AD BUT IT WAS DIFFICULT TO SEE IN ONE OF THE PICTURES IF THE BUTTON WAS MISSING.
Summary: I have used this camcorder now for at least 3 years and it's a wonderful camera. I have used it everywhere, including weddings, birthday parties and during vacations. Since this camcorder is VHS formate, I like it how my recordings can easily be played in any VCR with just an optional VHS playback adaptor. It has neat features, like digital wipes and fades that can be used at any point to make a transition between scenes.
Summary: This is a great first time camera. It is so easy to use that my next door neighbor, who was 5 at the time knew how to use it without me having to tell him anything and he isn't very bright. It is very simple to figure out, you press the red button when you start when your done you press it again.
Summary: I recently go a JVC camera, works wonderfully -- I especially liked the download capability into my PC. Then I upgraded the PC to Windows 2000, and the PC could not talk to the camera any more... So, if investment protection is on your list of requirements, buy from a competitor who will support newer Windows versions and not leave you stranded...
Summary: I have been looking around at different camcorders and have done a lot of research on most of them in this price range. This one is very simple to use, the video comes out very clear. The LCD monitor is very clear. The only thing I don't like is the on/off switch is in a hard to get to spot and it is flat, but I can live with it.
Summary: I really don't have a review. My JV camcorder is 16 years old and does not have the quality anymore. I only realized this after taking pictures at my parents 54th wedding anniversary and wished the pictures would have been better. I am in the process of shopping for another camcorder.
