Summary: it was barely used, cheap and i like the style. my niece will enjoy this present at christmas. she has 3 children which is my god children. she will enjoy recording evnit that the family is doing.
Summary: What I LIKED: Color viewfinder, the VHS-C tapes are easy to go through,Zoom is alkright but not that great. DISLIKED: It's kinda big,the screen isn't all that good and it's kinda hard to see outdoors, built in lens cap gets harder to close each time.
Summary: With the big push to go digital, the video camcorder is a great deal. This particular unit has the ability to record digital stills that can subsequently stored in a hard drive, re-recorded on disc, or directly stored on VHS tape. It has excellent optical zoom with the option of added digital zoom. I also like the simple operation, extensive options menu, and the ability to use either automatic function or manual override depending on the environmental changes.
Good Camcorder - Could have gotten bang more for my buck!

Summary: Don't get me wrong, this is a good camcorder. I love all of the functions and it's really easy to get started with and use. The built-in light and stability features are too die for. There are tons of accessories you can get to enhance your pictures and vhs quality. But, it's not a true digital camera. And the digital camera function could be improved on. I get better quality photos using my scanner at home. The software that comes with the system is not adequate either.
Summary: I bouhgt this model last year for Christmas and sort of regret it. The quality of the video and ease of use is good, but it is no better than a VHS entry level model. My greatest beef is how wimpy the battery is for this top of the line model. If you buy any JVC, you really need to buy an extra battery or you will miss moments that you want to capture. Buy the basic model with the LED screen for basic use or pony up for a digital model for all the bells and whistles.
Summary: I have owned JVC camcorders for the last 10 years. So when I decided for a new one, all the gadgets and the viewfinder/monitor were really appealing to me, I chose the JVC GR-SXM920U palm-size compact VHS-C camcorder. Even though the gadgets are really good, I couldn't regret more my choice. The digital camera is a joke. It distorts the images being captured (very good to create funny faces).
Summary: LOVE THIS CAMERA.....BEAUTIFUL PICTURES WITH TRUE TO LIFE COLOR....EASY TO WORK AND PRODUCED WONDERFUL ANIMATION ALSO.....LOVE ALL THE DIFFERENT GADGETS THAT ARE OH, SO EASY TO USE...THE LIGHT ON THE FRONT IS VERY HELPFUL WHEN YOU ARE IN LOW LIGHT AND TO SUM IT ALL UP...THIS IS AWESOME....I LIKE IT BETTER THAN THE MORE COMPLICATED JVC DIGITAL CAMCORDER WHICH I ALSO HAD....THIS IS SO EASYYYYYY.
