Summary: This is a great "video camera" and a not so good digital still camera. If you are purchasing this "video camera" to use to shoot video then I will recommend this camera, but if you want a great digital still camera then purchas a separate digital still camera. The vast majority of "video cameras" are best used for video and not digital still photography. So once again buy this "video camera" for video and buy a digital still camera for digital photography.
Summary: I did a lot of research before buying. It is the best value in this class. Don't expect great snap shot quality from this camera and others in the same class. You need progressive scan and at least 1 mega pixel CCD for a good quality picture. That would put you into a totally different price range. Manufacturers advertise mega pixel camcorders pretty loudly and they are currently above $1200. The video quality is great (almost DVD) and low light sensitivity is good.
Summary: My husband gave me this camera for Christmas because he knew I really wanted a digital camera and I had expressed some interest in a camcorder as well...He figured this would do double-duty very well. I played with it all day Christmas day taking video and stills and was loving it. The video was awesome...very easy to use and of decent quality. Battery drained very quickly, but most do, so that wasn't a big deal. Close-up shots looked really good.
Summary: Its been 4 days since I bought this camera and I was able to get going in about 15 minutes (after charge ofcourse). I would have given this 5 stars if not for the quality of still pictures. But the still pictures are blurr even in the best of conditions. But I have a very good still camera, so I am not complaining...too much... Every thing else is pretty good for the price...Since I am a first time owner, I am very happy with my decision.
Summary: This camcorder far exceeded my expectations and is very easy and simple to use. The Mini-DV media is by far the highest quality and JVC offers Sony-like quality at an affordable price. The remote control feature makes playback very convenient. The media card allows for a quick transfer of digital still shots to your PC and ultimately to the WEB.
Summary: I was very disappointed about the quality of images that this machine recorded. The pictures looked blur and not clear even they were taken in fine mode under sun lights. I don't even know the resolution and JVC didn't put on its specification either.
Summary: This camcorder is very practical to use: it's small, lightweight, fits nicely in the hand and is easy to operate. It works well for both indoor and outdoor scenes. The picture quality is very good for both digital camera and camcorder modes. The digital photos (up to 200) are stored on a memory card and it only takes a few minutes to download them onto the P.C. via a USB connection. The software that comes with the camcorder works well with Windows Me.
Summary: After using this camcorder for a few days I want to update my first rating. I would have given this camcorder a perfect 5 if it had these following options; stereo mic inputs, headphone output or stereo line inputs. The video and sound are digital. The video is DVD qulity and the sound is better than CD audio, but you can't make use of it to its fullest.
Summary: This is truly a great camcorder. The size is very small and light, but don't let that fool you this is a full functioning camcorder and digital camera. It fits in your hand and the controls fall in place to make for a comfortable fit. I have a Sony digital camera mavica and the JVC camcorder is lighter than the digital camera. It uses a eight meg memory card for storing images and the images can also be copied to the tape.
