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. But for sports or fast action stuff. Don't get it. you will just be getting blurry frames in an fast movement.
Excerpt: This is a really great camcorder. I love the fact that it does full HD. The screen size is nice, the controls are easy to use, and the picture quality is outstanding. The 60 GB hard drive allows me to record for over 4 hours in full HD. The options of using auto setting work great for 90% of shooting - but if you want to play with some manual focus and lighting - you have the capabilities to switch it to manual and record that way as well.
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. My only complaint was I had to convert the video files to run them on my mac using a software called MPEG Streamclip. But I can live with that, and other than that found it to be perfect.
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: 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. Integrates perfectly with iMovie 09 once I learned how to create and play playlists in the camera. I am a happy camper. The unit arrived promptly from the vendor with all original accessories.
