Summary: had to send it back because of misleading advertising. be careful folks. this is a cam that is specific to apple mac intel dual core or better, running at least 10.6.x and ONLY with FCP and a very particular codec that is ONLY going to work with this cam if FCP is installed. this is not made plane enough in the advertising and I thought it was worth pointing out.
Summary: When I look at this camcorder at first, I was a little bit skeptical. It is a little bit bigger than an advance consumer camcorder. After reading the manual and getting used to all the manuals, I can honestly say that this is a very good camcorder for its size. It has all the manuals controls you need for shooting a pro video. Also, it's possible to tweak the setting to obtain a very good picture quality even in low light situations.
Summary: I was skeptical about the robustness of recording to these tiny flash cards. To be honest, so far, I'm amazed. After shooting for years on bigger cameras utilizing mini-DV tape, I rise up and rejoice... "I'm liberated!" I love almost everything about this camera, starting with its size. Very compact which allows for maintaining an effective under-the-radar presence. Look like a tourist, while gathering superb professional footage.
Summary: This camera is able to record in Quicktime. And it the only Video Camera listed for sale on the Apple website. I use Final Cut Pro X. This thing is perfect when it comes to work flow. Shoot your scene edit you clips (NO RENDERING)! Wow this is the way it should be. This is a point and shoot/ get it right the first time camera. I was so impressed with the speed and smoothness things focus in.
Summary: After 6 months of research, I finally went the the JVC-HM150. In the end, the reason was a no brainer. I am a wedding and event videographer. My clients expect me to deliver a great video for which they a paying top dollar for. Imagine telling the bride you lost the footage of the most happiest day in her life because of SD card failure. This would truly give you a bad reputation. The fear of loosing footage is now over.
