Just plain awful

CM, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera is just awful. The quality of the image is downright deplorable. It has a consistent grainy picture that is extremely visible in any light. I am so disappointed.

good in day light

Ishu Singh, Amazon

  • Summary: i am not a professional photographer so was just looking for a 3d camera to record videos of my new born. this camera had good reviews so i purchased it. 3d video is great in bright day. i was even able to upload it on youtube in the SBS format and it looks great. in low light, its very grainy. also, the screen is not very good. since i already have the fuji w3, i can tell that the image quality on camera's in-built screen is not very good. fuji's w3 is much better.

Your best bet for a 3D camcorder under 1K

novelist1985, Amazon
10 November 2013
  • Summary: Bought this back in July of 2013, and have been using it pretty consistently even a year later. Ultimately, this camera will not give you great color or solid quality. It is not anywhere near the quality of a DSLR, and even a go-pro will beat this when comparing to 2D. If you WANT a 3D Camera, this is the one to get. While not a pro-level camera by any means, this delivers the best 3D video you can get outside of 25K+ Rigs.

My best camcorder ever!

Csaba Egri, Amazon
20 September 2013
  • Summary: Well, I'm not a pro just a gadget guy who likes to have quality products for reasonable price. Comparing this camcorder's specs and price you will immediately realize, that 3D camcorders with the same specs costs around double if not more, and they are much more bulkier than this tiny clever camcorder.

Great Camera - - - Great Price

BIG 3D FAN "MUSICAL LOVER", Amazon
26 July 2013
  • Summary: This camera is fantastic! I honestly would have been very pleased with my purchase even if I had paid the $2000.00 list price - - but at $895.00 it is a real steal!!! I have had it for a month now and keep finding new things it can do. It is especially good in low light situations. If you are into 3D do yourself a favor and purchase this camera.

An excellent 3D video choice!

J. O. Neil, Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: I chose this camera over the Sony TD10/20/30 cameras and JVC's own GS-TD1 for several reasons, the most important being "bang for the buck". This camera will do 3D 1080p24 and is currently the least expensive and smallest 3D camcorder available which will. The stereo base is also marginally wider than the Sony cameras and the low light performance is astounding.

For a first 3D camera, will do the job.

brunobv, Amazon
19 March 2013
  • Summary: You've got to keep in mind that the 3D effect will only appear on close objects, as far as 4m (12ft). In longer ranges, it will look like a puppet theater. But it is ok, lots of controls, so you can change depth-of-field and speed. For indoors, it is perfect.

Not a 2D 24p camera

Kenneth J. Coughlan, Amazon
5 September 2012
  • Summary: I purchased two of these cameras for a beginning cinematography program. Overall, they will meet our needs. The overall picture quality is good. Low light quality is adequate for this level camera. The onboard microphone captures good sound, although like any onboard mic you pick up camera sound, so using an external mic is by far preferable. The touch screen can be somewhat tempermental. You may need to push your selection a couple times for it to register.

3D For Everyone With the JVC GY-HMZ1U

highkey, Amazon
1 February 2012
  • Summary: As of late, the term 3D has caused bitter blog battles -- fan boys (and girls) fighting tooth and nail as to what medium better illustrates a story -- traditional 2D or this 3D "fad." I was not one to take sides so easily. I love the way a 3D production can bring you right into the story and I also love the way 2D allows the comfort of just watching it happen.
