Great Camcoder, great value

Fred C., Newegg
2 April 2013
  • Summary: You really can't beat this JVC Everio for the price. Got it for a trip figuring if it died, so be it. $130 isn't too big of a hit to take. 2+ years later, it's still working strong and still love it.
  • Pros: I've had mine for 2 years now and continues work great. Have owned old school JVC camcorders before (the ones that used tapes!) and they always worked well, so when I saw this for just $130, with all the features listing, had to give it a shot. Figured it it didn't work out, for $130, can't go to...
  • Cons: Battery life could be longer. It'll last 1 hr and that's not changed over the last 2+ yrs of use. Battery life was listed and known in advance and not a surprise, so no stars deducted.

Great HD Videos/Pictures

Charles E., Newegg

  • Summary: This is a great HD video camcorder. The quality of outdoor videos are unbeleaveable. The indoor quality is very good as long as you have good lighting. Low light quality suffers just a bit.
  • Pros: Price, HD Video quality, features.
  • Cons: none

It's a Steal!!! Great little camera!!!

Stephen T., Newegg
7 April 2011
  • Summary: The quality of the camera is relative to the price paid. If I had paid $300 or more, my list of cons may have been longer. The camera feels great in the hand. It's well made and very compact--almost Flip UltraHD in size.
  • Pros: Very compact, great video quality outside, good (not great) video quality inside, excellent autofocus (very fast), almost instant start up, dual SD card slots, good sound quality, GREAT PRICE!!!
  • Cons: Advanced Image Stabilizer is electronic only and not particular effective, pictures quality degrades when you zoom above 10x, laser touch menu is difficult to navigate and not sensitive--joystick or touch screens are much better, poor still picture quality, no flash or LED, record button placed i...

Works Great

Howard H., Newegg
8 March 2011
  • Summary: It's a phenomenal deal for what it is. You can't find this camcorder for less anywhere else. It has the benefits of a traditional camcorder, 20x optical zoom, anti-shake (albeit digital) and records in AVCHD which seems to be the most popular standard for traditional style HD camcorders.
  • Pros: Great outdoor videos. Compact Size. Full featured camcorder for the price of a pocket cam. 20x optical Zoom. Uses SD cards
  • Cons: Grainy indoor (low light) videos. Battery life is limited to 60 - 90min max. There are no third party decoded versions of the battery and the OEM batteries are pricey.

Tested True. Excellent Camcorder

Jacob E., Newegg
5 July 2010
  • Summary: taking lots of video with this camera, penndotpal channel on youtube. Attached video cut and produced with PowerDirector, MPEG2 - BD 1080p, Recorded with Xviv color enabled, and UXP mode.
  • Pros: I Ordered one of these and 2 Kingston 32GB Class 10 SDHC Cards, I have taken Days of Video and Absolutely Love the light quality and performance of the camera, I had it with me for the 4th of July and was very surprised how well the CMOS recorded the fireworks. in UXP Mode, I can record 6 Hours (...
  • Cons: Takes a long time to remove videos...this is due to USB 2.0 speeds.
