Summary: Really great value. It has great telephoto/lowlight capabilities, not so good wide shot/lowlight, but because it's so tiny I can get some great action cam light shots without the fisheye. The JVC remote control system comes in Very handy and fairly easy to set up. Oh, and I love the built in lens cap - can't lose it!
Summary: We went to an Alice Cooper Concert for the first time use! It did great!! Sometimes the video you were looking at while recording seemed a little shaky, but maybe it was zoomed out to much (didn't use a tripod or mono-pod). All in all I think it is a pretty good camcorder for less than $200. I have always wanted a camcorder and finally got this one. :-) Very easy to use and touch screen was nice too! It is small, light weight, good battery life for the 2 hour concert!!
Summary: really great zoom, pretty nice features and is setup to come on when the door to the lcd is open. Built in lens cover too. the zoom button isn't in the best of locations for bigger hands nor the picture button but I bought it for tripod use so not a problem for me. I bought the bigger battery which gives long run times for longer events or weddings.
Other parents have also purchased this camera after seeing it in action.

Summary: Bought it for the low cost HD. Pleasantly surprised by the WiFi capability -- especially when I installed the matching Android app on my tablet and am now able to control the camera from the tablet. The only issue was the small battery that came with the camera. I bought the high capacity battery with wall charger and now the camera lasts an entire day of recording my daughter playing volleyball even when using WiFi.
Summary: Excellent quality. Love the wifi function! One of the best video cameras for the money. Many features allow you to shoot in many situation. Quick start option is good too. This camera is helping me perform me job duties. The HDMI capabilities make the videos remarkably clean and crisp! I wish it would have a remote, however, iPhone has an app toy can use as a monitor and a remote. It creates it's own peer-to-peer network so the camera and your iPhone communicate.
