Summary: This is a great little video camera for basic family home videos. It is one of the only low budget camcorders that I have found which can link up with my old super-8 camcorder to transfer over all of my old videos, over 20 hours worth. It has many options and so far has performed great.
Summary: I bought this camcorder to replace an old Panasonic MiniDV recorder. After reading the reviews I decided to give it a try. My first issue was volume, if the people in the video did not speak very loudly, you could not hear them during playback mode.
Summary: I bought this product about a month ago for a Disney World trip. I'm not very good with new products, but I have to say, this was easy! The daytime videos are perfectly clear. The night recordings were just as nice as well.
Summary: I purchased this to replace my 10 year old Sony Hi-8 camcorder. I compared it to the sony dc-sr65 but found the JVC to have much more features for the price namely:remote control,auxilliary light and the LCD screen was much brighter. The dock is very simple.
Summary: I just love this camcorder. It is just the right size. It can easily fit into your pocket! I ordered this from another site and it come withe docking station and the dvd burner. The video and camera modes are outstanding. I have set my camcorder to store up to 37 hrs of video!
Summary: JVC GZ-MG355 is a good value camcorder. The price paid was about $30 less at retail stores plus there was no tax charged. All I wanted was a camcorder to capture vacations and home activities with family. High definition was not needed. Video quality is very good in daylight and indoor lighting.
Summary: great product, easy to use and handle, plenty of on-board recording time. easy to connect to computer or dvd/vhs recorder. First bought a panasonic of the same size, but the jvc was much easier to use. Very satisfied.
Summary: I love this camcorder. It is lightweight, easy to use, and I especially love the HDD. If you have a Mac, make sure you buy this version with the dock. I originally purchased the GZ-MG330 only to discover that it does not have a firewire port. Only the dock can connect to a Mac via firewire.
Summary: I spent considerable amount of time researching on the camcorder. It was a tough choice with available choices ranging from MiniDV camcorders to HDD camcorders and varieties within these two categories. I finally narrowed down to HDD camcorders for two reasons.
