Summary: I owned this camera for 2 years, and used it for lots of kids activities, hockey games and soccer games. I loved the fact that you could take video, and then go home and take still pictures of your video footage. It is nice not to have a digital camera on one shoulder, and a camcorder on the other.
Summary: I purchased the camera as a gift for my husband in July of 2002. As new parents, we expected that we would want a camcorder to record important moments in our children's infancy and toddlerhood. We have not been able to do so, as the camera has been out of commission or in the repair shop for most of the time we've owned it.
Summary: This is an excellent camcorder. The 920U (this camcorder) is much better than the 720U/820U. The earlier versions had a constant buzz on the recorded audio that appeared to come from the DV tape motor. The 920U is very quiet and the audio is crystal clear. Video quality was much better, too, with sharper colors probably due to the improved lens. (The colors on the 720U/820U were washed out and dull.
Summary: ... I used it for the first time during my vacation with my family to Southern California last December and it satisfied me very much. The manual is really easy to follow. It felt good in my palm during action. I took some pictures because the 920 is also equipped with memory card. I really proud of this camcorder...
Summary: I brought this DV for couple months. I have to admit this DV is much better than I expected. The quality of the video is excellent. The only bad thing is that the camera function is moderate. It only takes good picture in a well lighted place. Also, if you want to transfer your video to your PC, you need to have a firewire port. The usb only works with the SD, so don't expect that you can transfer the video from the usb port.
Summary: This camcorder is AWESOME. I'm not so great at writing reviews, but here's what I have to say. The camcorder itself looks really cool. It's got a great design, and only weighs like 1 1/4 lbs, so it's really lightweight and doesn't hurt your arms. The picture and sound are perfect. When watching videos that I made, I sometimes felt like I was watching a DVD on a flat screen TV, the picture is THAT good.
Summary: I really like this camcorder. Too many functions, it takes a while to get to know all. I like the built-in light that many newer models lack. The 700X zoom is overkill, after about 200X you can't see much. I agree with the fisrt reviewer, you need to buy extra battery and a good universal charger. You can shop around for best deal, prices range from 650 to 1099. Remember the lower the price, the worse the service. Stick with the online companies that you trust.
Summary: Wow! That's really all that can be said, but I'll try my best to say more. I was really hesitant about getting the 920, as I planned on getting a sony in similar price range(trv25,27), but after extensively testing both, and excluding panasonic altogether because of a horrible past experience, the JVC was my only option, and boy is it one amazing option. The first thing that will shock you is the size and design.
