Summary: Nice camcorder for price. The audio sounds fine to me. Zoom is excellent. I connected the camera using firewire to my DVD recorder and it works great, very simple. I am able to easily make copies to DVD of what we created.
Summary: we bought this product and i thought because it was from JVC it would be good well i was wrong when we recored it looks fine but when we play it back it's so dark and i know it's that camcorder because are t.v.
Summary: The DV is in a weird place, on the bottom, which makes inserting a new tape while the camcorder is on a tripod impossible. Otherwise, this camera is great. Compact, easy to use, etc. The light on it is convienent; though it would be nice to have the option to turn it on remotely.
Summary: I decided on this camcorder because it supposedly had an AV in/out and was advertised on various web sites including this one as such. It only has an AV out jack. Therefore you can not transfer your old tapes to digital. WHen I called the company, one person said it did, another one said it didn't.
Summary: Bought this for my husbands birthday, he loves it. Lots of features and good quality pics. Only one complaint, still photo button is right next to record button. We keep pressing the still instead of record! Fits in the palm of hand, great little camera. All in all a good value.
Summary: I've had this camcorder now for 6 months. Here are some of the things I have found. First you know to purchase a firewire. The charger, I found a nice charger that you put the battery in the unit and plug the whole thing into the electrical socket. That is nice.
Summary: Wanted to buy a new Cam at the first of the year but waited on the newer models to arrive. I was looking at Canon's Z300, Sony's HC32, and JVC's 295. I think each has it strong points but in the end it was JVC's zoom, extra battery, great night vison, and crystal clear quality that lead me here.
