Summary: I've used this for a few years to make YouTube videos off and on ([...] if you want to see). Quality is decent, but not great. It doesn't handle low light well at all so make sure you've got lots and lots of cool white light. Non-daylight spectrum bulbs give everything a shadowy, orangey-yellowy hue. Oh and the battery isn't so great.
Excerpt: This comcorder was bought specifically for recording high school basketball games to submit to colleges. The picture quality is blurry at best, it doesn't adjust quickly enough for moving objects (players or ball). The mic picks up more noise from the side or "backround" noise than the calls from the refs / players.
Excerpt: This is a great camcorder for taking home movies with. It's really easy to point and shoot movies, and the menu is easy to understand. The manual settings are a snap to learn and configure. THer viseo settings, such as brightness and contrast, are easily changeable even after video is taken- the sun can't wash out your memories. Also, there are neat special features such as sepia and black and white, if you're into those things.
Excerpt: A nice camcorder that is small and compact. Remember the big, bulky VHS recorders? This is small enough to carry with you wherever you go. With a family of five children, we use is quite a bit for birthdays, special events, Christmas, etc. The picture comes out very clear and the sound is very good.
Excerpt: i got this camcorder as a way for me to record our vacations that we take as a family during the year. it is not the best cam corder that i have ever used or owned in my life. i think that i can probably do better the next time that i go and buy myself a camcorder. i think that overall it is an easy camcorder to use, but the features that i am looking for are lacking in quality.
Excerpt: I shopped around looking for a reliable and easy to use video camera that I could use and then download directly to my PC without having to convert the video to an editable format... and JVC has come through nicely. Editing and then creating a DVD with the Everio software is a breeze. The easy to use buttons and menu interface make the camera a perfect hybrid video recorder and digital camera.
The camcorder is a great way to record family memories.

Excerpt: This product is easy to use. The price was great. It has simple to use features, adding date, different filters. The zoom is great, but pictures can loose detail if zooming in from a far distance away, and it is better quality film if you are closer, not further away. Settings are user friendly. Easy to view screen. The features are on a durable dial. The lettering has not faded over time on feature dial. Cleaning kit comes with product and is wonderful.
Love IT! Record to hard drive then burn DVD's in your computer!

Excerpt: I am so glad I don't have to deal with cassettes anymore! This little camcorder is wonderful. It comes with a 1 hour battery, and I also purchased a 3 hour battery. It holds 10 hours worth of video, so if you go on vacation it's great! Hook it up to your computer when you get home, download, and then burn to your dvd's. You can't go wrong!!
Summary: I purchased this to video tape my Son's football and soccer games and to convert video to You Tube highlight films and DVDs for College Coaches. IT WORKED GREAT. Great quality and easy to use. I had numerous Coaches ask my son who is professional videographer was. I loved it so much just bought another Everio. Never a problem or issue over 5 years of heavy use.
