Summary: I have the JVC GZ-E10AU. The 40X zoom is good, better then I thought. Face detection works. Don't mind the stabilizer, but I don't use it much. I have a 64GB SanDisk SD card in mine and setting at XP. On XP I get a little over 8house of video, if the battery would hold up. I get about an hour of battery time. Now I have taken a lot of video with this cam and have to say on playback on a 50inch Samsung flat screen the picture looks very good, even at low light.
WILL NOT CREATE NORMAL DVD'S / UNSUPPORTED FORMAT -- WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY -- TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE

Summary: Worst camera ever. Takes plenty of nice videos in some bizarre format that you cannot convert to normal DVD's or play on anybody else's computer. I have downloaded and installed all of the company's updates, including the one that claims to be for converting the weird format and burning normal DVD's, however after numerous attempts and constant computer crashes, I have given up. I read the other reviewer's advice on skipping a title for the disc and that does not work.
Practiacl and affordable, even for professional use.

Summary: The best quality camera for the money. I use these cameras to make professional videos, such as music videos and television shows and commercials. I have purchased 5 of them so far. In my opinion, the video quality this camera produces outperform other cameras that I have used that cost thousands of dollars.

Summary: I ran into problems and there were not enough explanations in the included paper work to find out how to correct the situation. I read the booklet that was included a number of times. I went on line and did not get an answer there. My problem was the camera advised that the SD that was in the camera had to be programed in the camera. I could find no information on programing the SD.
Summary: This camera is just OK. It makes a decent video. 1-each time you pause or stop the video it creates a new segment instead of continueing where you left off. SUCKS! 2-Software is clodgy and not easy to use. Takes a long time to compile videos. NOT user friendly 3-Supplied witha toy tripod. SUppose I should have read more carefully. 4-Standard battery does not last long enough. Other than that the zoom is great, takes a decent video, Get one today!
