  • Summary: I did not buy this product from amazon but I have used it previously and wanted to give my review. My experience with camcorders/filming is very limited but this was easy to use and produced very clear and professional-looking videos. I have only used it in brightly-lit rooms so I am unaware of any lighting problems it might have.

A Decent HD Camera for the Pricetag, but Be Sure to Have Good Lighting Equipment

AtticMan "Thorne", Amazon

  • Summary: For the price, the GY-HM100U is a decent investment, especially for the independent filmmaker with a limited/no budget. The main reason that I ended up choosing to buy this camera is because it supported SD card file storage (nearly up to 4 hours on the highest HD setting if you know where to buy the cards), 24fps that lends to a very film-like look and feel to your footage, as well as basic components for audio recording IE: the XLR microphone inputs.

BAD, BAD, BAD

Sick of it, Amazon

  • Summary: When I first bought this camera, I was in love with it. Small, was the perfect videocamera for me, since I mostly film documentary. The first thing that didn't work propperly was the memory. I bought two memory cards, 32 GB each, but any time I try to use both of them together (each one inside of each slot), it cames a failure message, so I have to remove one of them, and use only one (wich bothers me, since I have to pay attention to the memory that is left).

If you are working in FCP, this is the cam for you

  • Summary: JVC has made it so easy to turn your home office into a full-fledged movie studio by using this streamlined prosumer camera in conjunction with Final Cut Pro. The .mov format is only the beginning -- moving media from camera to hard drive has never been easier, and the HD picture is gorgeous. The camera features every manual option a videographer/filmmaker could ask for to create professional-looking digital movies.

Incredible piece of equipment

Mantis Guy, Amazon
22 September 2009
  • Summary: This is the camera I've been waiting for for 7 years. It has everything I've wanted: Incredible HD quality, direct MOV/Final Cut Pro-ready file creation, SDHC card usage, a decent built-in mic... It has taken the quality of the video work I'm doing to a whole new level. I could not be happier with this camera except if I had a 2nd one to do simultaneous 2nd camera angles in the studio... I am trying to make my filming worthy of the quality this camera produces!

Super Camcorder

Andreas L., Guenstiger.de
6 October 2009
  • Summary: Tolle Kamera, alles dran was man braucht. Gibt nur ein paar Tricks die man wissen muss. Zbsp. sieht man plötzlich ein SW-Bild im Play-Mode, wenn man das nicht vorher im Rec-Moe vom SW-Schärfenassistent wieder zurück geschaltet hat. Genauso die Formatgrößen. Sie werden im Play-Mode nur jene angezeigt, die auch in dem enstpr. Mode aufgezeichnet wurden. Also MP4 auch nur, wenn ich das vorher im Rec-Mode auch im Menü schalte.
