Summary: However; no lens cap, cables, manual or software gave me some preliminary concerns. I was able to download manual from the JVC web site. Windows 7 professional will work with this cameras SD chip or you will need to order the proprietary software CD from JVC for $35 bucks.
Summary: This camera has a very clear image and amazing zoom, but is just not good for moving scenes, if you plan to record sporting events, or thing that require that you have to move the camera, you will be better off with something else, but, besides that, if you plan to shoot most out of a tripod or...
Good quality, good video, battery less than awesome

Summary: First, I want to say that this is a great camera. It has a lot of options and features and works perfectly. It is easy to use and the menus are clear and easy to follow without needing to refer to the manual. The video quality is good and it did perform well for me indoors.
Summary: I own a Canon Vixia HV30 and the JVC GZ-HM300BU both HD and I have to say the JVC outdoor quality beats the $600. + Canon hands down. First the auto focus is superb thoughout the whole scene with very little to no lose of clarity.
Summary: This is a pretty nice little camcorder. It could use a light for shooting in dark situations though. It takes clear and sharp video. It's very light and easy to hold. The menu is simple and anyone could use it. Has great zoom features. It saves files in AVCHD which is a nice feature.
Inexpensive little HD Camcorder delivers a fantastic picture for the money.

Summary: I was actually quite impressed by the picture quality on this little (and I mean LITTLE!) camcorder. Although I haven't yet delved into all of its features yet, I was extremely impressed with its outdoor shooting capabilities, at least.
Summary: I bought this camera to film skateboarding, I now have an opteka 37mm Vortex fisheye and am using a Zoom H1 digital recorder as an external mic, once I have some footage with my setup I will post so you get an idea how it looks.
