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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: We had avoided spending money on a new camcorder since the one we have owned for several years seemed to still be in working order. After helping record a school event using an earlier version of this JVC Everio, I was hooked.
Summary: This is a good, inexpensive video/snap camera, but 1) The quality is YouTube and computer video only. It's not HD and doesn't look good on your TV. That being said, it's a third the price of one that does. Just be aware.
