Excerpt: We bought this camera recently as we were going on a trip to Italy and wanted to record the whole thing. I think it was one of the best purchases that I have made. First of all, this camcorder is virtually idiot-proof. It is easy to use, clear, and the fact that everything is on the hard disk makes it convenient.

Summary: I have this model for over 2 years. It works for me. Video is fine, with big optical zoom. The file you get is kinda strange as you would need some kind of software to convert them into other types.
Summary: I bought this camera about five years ago, before the whole "HD" craze. Here's the good and the bad: THE GOOD: - This thing had AWESOME zoom--don't worry about that. - It was super easy to share and upload videos on your computer. - Playback on TVs was great and not problematic. THE BAD: - As previously stated, don't be expecting HD; you'll get good 480p. - The touch interface is glitchy and doesn't recognize sometimes when you use it.
Summary: I've had this JVC since July 2009 and it's been a good work-horse for me. The camera is very small and light. It fits nicely in my palms. The camera turns on quickly when the viewfinder is opened. Recording starts with one simple click. The 35x Optical Zoom is a nice option but you need a steady recording hand. There are many basic options for this camera. You can adjust the brightness of the viewfinder, which may be necessary in heavy sunlight.
Summary: I had this little camcorder for almost 4 years and its still running great (depending how well you take good care of it.) I bought this back in high school for making short videos that requires direct & edit to make great and epic works. So far to this day, I had accidentally dropped this camcorder only three times throughout my 4 years owning it. It was amazing how it didn't have no scuff marks or any malfunctioning.

Pros: I love this camcorder, I travel alot and during events the zoom is great! I absolutly think that this camcorder is a great price (I got mine for 120 on ebay!) and shoots great quality video. The memory options are awsome as well!
Cons: I can't complain it has never let me down and battery's great!
Summary: This is my third one of these camcorders. I do not recommend the Hard Drive version as I previously had 2, as the hard drives are much more vunerable to failure and even if you are careful with it you don't know how much it was thrown around whilst bein shipped to you or a store. The SD card is much less suseptible to shock and you can now get SD cards up to 32 GB.
Convenient and cheap, but indoor shots orange-shifted

Summary: Pros: Very convenient-- Flip open the viewfinder, open the shutter, and you're ready to record in no more than a couple seconds. I've found that most of the things I tend to record are short and happen on the spur of the moment. Having a camcorder that's ready that fast means that I'm much more likely to use it.
