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'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: 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: Item came missing a battery and a lens cap. Why should such an advanced item even need a lens cap? I had an older JVC that didn't, and yet had fewer features. Also, though I do lots of biz with Amazon and love it, it took a while to get this straightened out (emails with no link, waiting for postage...
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.
