Summary: I got this camera with allot of expectations out of it without even reading any ones review but i wish i had. It looks cool and pro but the only reason i don't like is it's bad OIS. If you are getting it for fun or shooting non moving objects or something like that, i would recommend it.
Summary: This was a great purchase! You gave me so much extra stuff i wasn't even expecting to get. 2 batteries, a charger, and a power cord, even a case for the sd card! The camera runs perfect. I've already made 4 short films with it and plan to do many more. Easy to handle and control.
Excellent entry-level HD camera for the curious pro!

Summary: Very nifty little camcorder. Once you get past the proprietary video format, it is a breeze to use. Tons of useful features and the quality is amazing. If you can find a bargain under $500 it is worth a try, even if you just use it for family projects.
Summary: JVC GZ HD7 Love the ability to change lens, compact design, and many manual features that leaves you in control. Since I used a stabilizer most of the time with this unit it is pays off that it is very light.
Summary: The proof is in the pudding. I shot an entire feature-length documentary using a JVC GZ-HD7U, a pair of Schriber shotgun mics (Model SA-568ZM) strapped to it and plugged into its stereo input jack using a Y connector, and a GLIDECAM 2000 Pro.
Summary: Read some poor reviews but to my delight it is just what I wanted. An upgrade to HD from a 3 chip Sony. Videos are gorgeous, battery life is better than reviews. I bought an extended life battery and have only had to use it once on an extra inning baseball game.
The unmatched quality leaves Sony and Canon in dust

Summary: First of all let me deny all the idiotic reviews that keep copying one another that this camera produces inferior video. This is 3ccd baby produces unmatched quality footage with perfect color separation, great sharpness and smooth operations.
