Summary: This is another item I lost during a home burglary. When it came time to replace it, I didn't want to change cameras. Even though this model has been discontinued, I bought it anyway. It was easy to use, easy to set, and worked every time without fail. Getting the memory card in and out of the body was easy as well.
Camera ok some problems with the software especially if you loose the CD

Summary: From the physical point of view I can only complain about the fact it is too small and light weight and this makes it quite unstable in the hand that results in shaken image. In the same idea, it is quite impossible to use the zoom in/out switch without giving the camera small shocks that become big image shakes in the footage.
Summary: Overall its okay it isn't the best quality if your into doing a lot of videos i would say save your money for something better i still use it to do my videos on youtube but it isn't the greatest its okay for beginners that like filming videos.
Summary: We have had this camera for some time... problem... finding a replacement battery. The battery that comes with it is gz-hm30au. Trying to find an equivalent is very difficult. We don't want to buy just anything - would hate to ruin the camera by putting in the wrong one.
Summary: This camcorder was smailer than I thought. I have arthritis so it was a little hard for me to hold. It was a gift for my son-in-law who wanted it to film hunting trips. It takes good pictures in low lightening. He loves it!
Terrible!!! defective.. won't take a charge on any battery

Summary: I have bought 3 different batteries for this camcorder. NOTHING WORKS.. you can't charge it ... you can't use it... do not waste your money on this.... makes me sick. not even 1 year old and i can't get anything to charge... there are 2 ways to charge this... plug the camcorder in to the outlet to try charging the battery... this used to work but quit working last week. nice to pay $225 and have it quit within the first year. wow!
Summary: This video camera is SMALL! It's almost too small for my hands and I'm not a big guy at 5'7" and average weight. I actually bought it for my son and he thinks it feels great when he uses it. The camera may be small but the picture is certainly BIG and AWESOME! I nearly chose a similarly priced non-HD video camera and then I got lucky and found this one and I am so happy I did.
Summary: Phenomenal HD stills and video. I've used this so much since I've bought it and really have no issues with it. The flip out screen has a pretty intuitive user interface that didn't take me long to learn. Auto focus, lighting etc. work brilliantly. It charges pretty fast and holds the charge unlike my last camcorder battery. Another great JVC product in my opinion.
