Excerpt: "I have just brought the JVC MG142E and wanted to let you all know what a great little camcorder it is! First I should probably give you the technical stuff!! 40GB Inbuilt Hard Drive 34 x Optical Zoom 800 x Digital Zoom 2.7" Widescreen LCD Screen Memory Card slot for SD card Includes Image Stabiliser Night Vision Now, I am not exactly what you call an expert in technology but I found this little machine so great to get started with, ...
Pros: Lightweight, Easy to use, Lots of built in memory
Summary: Great little camcorder that packs a big punch. Light-weight, easy to use, nice sound, colour variance, with all the right ports to transfer your data files (movies, pictures, etc). The only gripe I have is that it doesn't have 'night-shot' like Sonys' camcorders, but how many of us shoot footage in the dark?!

There is a bundled film production program ...
Pros: Small pictue quality and sound good
Cons: Bundled software doesn't work and JVC couldn @ seem to care less .
Excerpt: En el año 2005 compré esta videocámara porque buscaba alguna fácil de usar, ligera, con buena calidad de grabación y a un precio razonable a fin de poder grabar mis vacaciones sin preocuparme demasiado.
