Summary: I bought this Product awhile back and waited to post a review to make sure of what I wanted to say. While this product does take good movies and pictures ( this product sees more color than my other product ), I must down load their software to edit my work, I had to go through a 3 step ( two software programs as well ) before the movie was windows movie maker compatable.
Summary: Reward being offered! I loved this camcorder. I am offering a $200. reward for anyone who finds and returns my camera. Our family went to Dollywood Fri., May 24. We lost a brown canvas shoulder bag and one of the things in it was our new JVC HD Everio video camera with unloaded video of our family's Christmas, our children's birthdays, school programs and our 6 year old singing at church in the little choir's spring performance. I'm just sick.
Summary: This lightweight video camera did a great job on a cruise to the British Virgin Islands. Good quality videos. It would be nice if it had an external mic input to counter wind noise, but otherwise, it is a great travel cam. Buy the larger battery if you go this route (BN-VG138U), as the standard battery does have a limited capacity.
Summary: I lost interest in this camera the first time I tried to use it, I was outdoors in bright light (as most of my videos would be) and looking at a reflection of myself made it impossible for me to see what I was doing, especially during attempted "Zoom". My previous camera had an eyepiece where you have no other reflections interfering with your subjects. It MIGHT be OK for indoor use but I've lost interest in it.....very dissatisfied!
Summary: I call this camera "my camera for dummies"..... Very easy to use, it has clear, concise instructions right on the camera. With this camera you basically turn on, aim, shoot/record..... My only complaint, battery life not the greatest.
Summary: Excellent product purchased. I liked very much. He attended almost all my expectations. I just think we should have the option to have on an infrared camera purchased in 2008. When you need again, this OEM manufacturer will have priority in my choice, since it meets all expectations.
Summary: I bought this camcorder for our soccer team to record our drills, training sessions and also upload a few videos on the team website. First impressions : really light and small, JVC / pixela software included for editing, good wifi features, decent low light performance, lots of nifty features like smile tracking / pet tracking, outside monitoring. I tested out the wifi connectivity and the outside monitoring feature. works pretty well.
