Summary: I use this for family shooting & also for amateur slow frame firearms gunsmith analyzing. It's a great unit. Still pictures turn out great, really like having an SD card slot for extra storage. HDMI feature is handy as well. File type is annoying but nothing adobe premier or other video software can't deal with.
Summary: very easy to use ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Summary: […] EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE OTHER HALF A DEZON OF HIGH DEF CAMCODRERS OUT THERE. I WENT WITH THE JVC-HMI BECAUSE OF ITS ABILITY TO PERFORM IN REAL LOW LIGHT SITUATIONS. ITS TAKES REAL GOOD 10 MPS STILL AND ON DUAL MODE IT TAKES OK STILL. THE GRAINS ON THE PICTURES ARE VISIBLE ON LOW LIGHT CONDITIONS. THIS CAMCODER IS SURPIDINGLY SMALL. ITS ONLY THE SIZE OF THE NEW HIGH END SMART PHONES THESE DAYS, LIKE THE HTC EVO.
Summary: This is the first HD camcorder I have owned, but not the first one I have used. I am writing this review mainly to correct the impression given in the review "Fatal flaw in this video camera design!" In that review it states "when you're in manual mode, the only autofocus you can use is the face detection system. You must go into the face tracking AF and turn it on to get autofocus.
Summary: I tested the camcorder over the period of several weeks outdoors in bright sunshine as well as indoors, even recording a single candle in a dark room. Top resolution photos were taken as well. When done I reviewed the videos on a 60-inch HDTV via HDMI, closely inspected images on a monitor (400%) and made full-bleed 8×10 prints with no post processing. This is a very good camcorder that also takes quality 10-megapixel stills. I have issues with it (Laser Touch).
Summary: I read a million reviews and spent months researching camcorders before deciding on this model, and I can honestly say I am completely satisfied. The video quality is absolutely stunning, as well as the image stabilization and low light performance. And it even takes great still pictures. This is truly broadcast quality HD for well under $1,000. What more could you ask?
Summary: I purchased this cam to document my trip in the US. Really amayzing video quality in daylight, pretty good in low ligth. Darker places sometimes needs user to set manual focus (couse in real dark sometimes it losts auto), but after that its still very good. The image stabilization and zoom are very easy to customize, and both work perfect. 10MP camera makes pritty good images!!! sum: really love it, think its really recommended.
I have only had this a short time, so my review is somewhat limited.

Summary: So it has been a short time, the real test will be next week, for our family vacation. Then it will be the normal usage from then on. I've experimented with the slow motion, which is great! but limited by time, 600 fps is a little choppy but amazing, 300, and 120 are much clearer and are great for slowing down flips and rotations into the pool. Playback when downloaded on the computer has it's drawbacks, however I think its more me having to reconfigure things.
Best Camcorder availble for both Video and Stills...

Summary: I have owned this cam for a little over 2 months and am very happy with it's performance. In both bright-light and low-light filming conditions, this cam performs very well. It's video sharpness and color accuracy is excellent and is right up there with the best consumer cams available today. Auto Mode works quite well in all aspects...focus, exposure, white balance, etc., and is stable in every lighting condition.
