Amazing for the price and rugged!

  • Excerpt: We just recently added this cam to our arsenal of equipment as we had the chance to use it for one of our wedding video and in daylight the colors were way better than our SONY HXR-MC2000's, and handles better in low light, but of course the HM70 is newer and has a BSI sensor. My second camera operator uses his Panasonic AG-AC8, and even he likes the lens autofocus action better on the HM70. We just recently purchased this with the extra JVC zoom rocker.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance

looks professional but it's not ......

  • Excerpt: This is a great looking cheap camera that will impress onlookers and is surprisingly good in low light. However, I emphasize the word cheap with thin plastic and overall flimsy build. Did one trial shoot with this camera before I sent it back. The audio was bad even though I was using a pro Sony ENG wireless mic and I could see the color actually vary as I shot !!??. I generally like JVC products but they never quite catch up with Sony or Canon in the camcorder market.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor Sound

  • Excerpt: Received this camera two weeks ago and had high hopes for this to be a cheap camera with good video quality without all the bells and whistles (I have two NX5Us and was looking for something that had video quality that would match up with them). Put the camera through the paces the first day I had it and it performed flawlessly in good light (outdoors, good sunlight). Impressive.
  • Pros: Easy to Use
  • Cons: Poor In Low Light

Great Camcorder

  • Excerpt: I purchased this video camera after researching the market for my required features and price range. This is an extremely nice HD camcorder for the price. Note: this JVC GY-HM70U is not billed as a high-end PRO Camcorder and some features that come with a high-end Pro Camcorder are not on this model. This information is clearly noted on the specifications. I have high-end PRO camcorders – but – needed a camcorder easy to use and quick to setup for event recordings.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance

Easy to use

  • Excerpt: I purchased this video camera a month before purchasing accessories in order to become familiar with all of the controls and settings. I immediately appreciated the easy to read controls and setting on the LCD. The "?" Also provides a short explanation for each setting. Thus, far I am pleased with the image quality. I have recently purchased FCP X, on an new 27" IMAC. Downloading to iPhoto and FCP was a snap.

A bit too simple

  • Excerpt: I was excited about this camera, but it fell short of my expectations. It also delivered as promised. It just depends on your needs.Pros: The hot-swapable dual battery slots on the back are the best feature. Great idea, wish it was an industry standard. Not very heavy for how large it is, zoom range/controls are good, image quality is acceptable so long as you have good light. It's sensitive to low-light environments, but the image quality drops off noticeably.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Hot-swapable Batteries, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Limited Zoom, Poor Image Quality, Poor Still Image

Veel voor weinig professionele videocamera

  • Excerpt: Gekocht bij CameraNu na goed laten informeren. Erg tevreden met deze aankoop! Camera is niet zwaar, heeft veel plussen en wat minnen, maar de minnen wegen niet op tegen wat je ervoor terugkrijgt. De f/1.2 lens geeft een prachtig helder beeld en is niet alleen geschikt voor bruiloft/ feest en partijen. We filmen er zelfs snelle airshows mee en voldoet prima.
  • Pros: Ligt perfect op de schouder, Niet alleen voor bruiloft/feest en partijen geschikt, Perfect beelkwaliteit, Alles op SD-kaartjes, Geen draaiende bandjes enz, Met deze camera word je zeer serieus genomen, Enorm veelzijdig, Ondanks dat hij plastic aanvoelt is de camera zeer stevig, Goed helder LCD scherm, Touchscreen, Accu's gaan erg lang mee, Lensbeschermingsysteem is top!
  • Cons: (nog) Geen raincover beschikbaar, Wordt niet standaard geleverd met een shotgun microfoon, wel een stereo zoommicrofoon, Geen fantoomvoeding voor de microfoon, Aansluiting opladen is wat onhandig, Fotograferen is niet supersnel

  • Excerpt: Взял как только начались продажи. Читал много негатива, но мои опасения не подтвердились. камера, конечно, не "космос", но свои задачи отрабатывает на отлично. Снимал ей даже для эфирного ТВ сюжет - в телевизоре качество картинки не отличалось от проф техники.
  • Pros: Удобная эргономика, все кнопки под рукой, даёт хорошую, "ровную картинку" в сложных условиях, на хорошем свете - так вообще отлично))) по качеству видео далеко впереди "одноклассников" из серии Сони 1500. Возможность не прерывая записи!! менять акб и карты (и то и другое дублируется). Надежная, солидная. Хороший режим ай-авто - как раз для начинающих свадебщиков позволит не "запороть" материал по не знанию))))
  • Cons: Кольцо зума на объективе не помешало бы. Но за эту цену таких камер нет вообще. Может, кому -то "слеповата", но из одноклассников самая зрячая по опыту использования.

  • Excerpt: Крайне не советую покупать !
  • Pros: нет
  • Cons: их ооочень много , сейчас она уже снята с производства , - кто купил ее тот проклял все , не понятно камера на чем фокусируется - расфокус полный - картинка дрянь - мыльная , худо бедно можно снимать только на улице и при дневном свете , в сети появляются хвалебные отзывы счастливых обладателей (в ковычках ) - это пытаются сбагрить товар барыги , зайдите на авторитетные видеофорумы и узнаете все об этом СЧАСТЬЕ
