Summary: I wanted to get a camcorder that recorded onto SD cards so I could place the card into a media reader, download the footage, and edit in Sony Vegas. Here's what happened: Forget about the camera's Quality settings for video. You'll probably want to set it to the highest setting, and never touch it.
Lightweight, Convenient, Good for most applications

Summary: The camera is very lightweight and generally easy to hold and operate. Although it does not fit in a shirt pocket,it is easy to carry but use of the strap is essential. The controls are simple and easy to use without needing instructions.
Summary: I couldn't seem to find this information when I was first shopping around for camcorders, so I just wanted to make sure any Mac users out there knew that this camcorder imports fine to iMovie '09. I'm not sure about iMovie '08 or earlier since I haven't used it with those programs.
Summary: I have been making video's for about 10 years. Started with a Sony 8mm and added a few more. My most recent videos before this cam were made using a Canon w/ DV tape. I've also used many of the software products for editing, Studio, Vegas, Magix, Arcsoft, etc.
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: 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 purchased on Boxing day,after reading good review on channel 5's Gadget show,and it was on offer (Currys) plus with cash- back,only cost £130.For the price the quality and feel is excellent ,and the screen and ease of use is generally very good.
