Summary: I purchased this camcorder jvc mg 155.I was looking for hdd camcorder.But picture quality and image stabiliation is not too good.There is not optical image stabilisation like Panasonic camcorder so you you need tripod.Video quality is poor as compared to 3 ccd and mini dv camcorder of Panasonic.Color tone are real in case of panasonic camcorder but in case of jvc if you view video on computer or TV color differ from what was original when shooted.
Summary: Best experience was at my son's middle school concert. Was not very pleased with the image stabilizer at only a short zoom. Sound was descent. Mediocre ease of use. Horrible software. Drains the battery fast. I ended up getting the Panasonic SDR-H18 and it seems to have been a better buy.
Summary: Just bought one of these over the weekend. First of all, it's really tiny. I have medium sized hands and the camera fits in my palm. Reviews on other sites have described the interface as a chore, but I'm not that put off by it. There are two basic modes: video and photo, which are switched by the power switch (easily available under your thumb, next to the record/stop button), and there is a button to switch between capture mode and playback mode.
Summary: Bought this as I was into the hard drive spec and hoped I could drag and drop digital video files onto the mac, but you cannot do that, computers do not use the file format JVC have chosen. Basically you play the camera in real time to import which is a bit disappointing. The camera is slow, slow to start up etc, when using it with kids you find you usually miss the shot.
Summary: Fotoqualität: bei geringen Verschlusszeiten sind die Bilder zu dunkel, bei längeren Verschlusszeiten ist trotz Stativ und Auslösung per Fernbedienung auch bei "kaum" bewegten Motiven, dass Bild wg. Unschärfe und verwischen nicht brauchbar. Nur etwa ein drittel der Fotos sind in Ordnung. Videoqualität: bei Schwenks besonders in kürzeren Entfernungen zum Motiv, ist kein "flüssiges" Bild mehr, sondern ein "zeitraffer"-Effekt teilweise mit minimalen Artefakten.
