Summary: I am very happy woth this product. The picture quality is excellent, the controls are more intuitive than my last camera... making changes in the settings is far easier. This was the least expensive 3 CCD camera I could find but it was about half the price of the the mini dv 3 CCD camera I bought a few years ago. It's rather amazing.
Summary: JVC has a terrible proprietary .TOD video file format. Once you get over that obstacle though, this particular Everio camera has the X.V. Color booster which is the only true reason to buy this camera over any other in its class. The color is excellent and does fairly well in low-light conditions in comparison to others of its type.
Summary: I love the camcorder works great and has a good price but there are somethings you should know before buying this product. First, the batterie does not last more than one hour because the LCD screen has to be opened in order to record. Second, sometimes the hard-drive will get really hot and the camcorder will turn itself off. Third and most important, if you have a mac this product can be really hard to work with.
Summary: This camera is a great HD camera and at a great price (that's what happens when six months pass since a product introduction in the consumer market). However, the lack of the ability to edit HD files using firewire is a big problem. To use firewire you need to record in less resolution 1440 (instead of 1920x1080) which doesn't permit great high resolution files to be downloaded automatically with firewire. My Macbook Pro has firewire and I am used to iMovie for editing.
Summary: GOOD ENOUGH FOR A DREAM FOR DEMANDING IS DONE FOR GOOD TO THE QUALITY OF SERVICE FOR THE ADAPTATION OF EVENTS AND FUNCTIONS TO BE SUBMITTED TO ADJUSTED EVENTS, LIGHT AND EASY AND DYNAMIC HANDLING. FOR DEMANDING novice and Aware, LENS AND GOOD SERVICE MANAGEMENT IN ALL OF THIS ACCEPTABLE EDICION. BUT HE COULD IMPROVE THE PC WITH TRASFERERENCIA something more dynamic.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Versatile
Summary: Pros : Nice camera - vivid pictures and movies. Compact and easy to use. 120 gig hard drive is very nice. Cons: Battery life could be better. Editing software is OK. Does not allow you to use Windows movie editors.
Summary: [...]I'm still trying to figure out the software that came with the vidcam. Which features are/not enabled and which upgrade I'll need for full functionality and I can't find the CD key number.The camera, on automatic mode, tends to lose it's white balance in lower light situations. The scene just fades to a red tint. I haven't tried to figure it out yet but feel confident that there is an acceptable solution[...
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Picture Quality
Summary: I run multimedia for a church and this is a great entry level camera. The only bad thing was I couldn't import any files to Premier Pro or Windows Movie maker. They have to be uploaded to a cyberlink program and rendered, wasting precious time. Other than that I would recommend this to anyone trying to do professional looking projects at nominal cost. It's got the best features of any camera in this range.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls, Versatile
