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.
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: I bought this based on the reviews from amazon and also watching this product on HSN TV. This was the best deal I got from amazon for $180.00. I am using 8GB HC SD card on this and it runs about for nearly 2 hrs on the fine mode, which has an excellent video quality.
Summary: Very impressed with this camcorder. It does pretty well in lower light considering how small the lens actually is. The f 1.8 aperture helps with that and it's much better than say the sony webbie which has an awful f 3.3 lens by comparison (which is a big part of the reason that camera is so bad in...
Summary: After quite a bit of research for a compact, non-HD video camera, I settled on the JVC Everio. Its solid-state recording (using SDHC cards rather than a hard drive) makes it really light-weight and more durable. It is loaded with features and provides great video.
Summary: This is a great little camcorder. I particularly like the fact that it is flash memory, thus eleminating the weight of a hard drive. Also, this allows you to just carry extra cards for recording. Easy to download to the computer.
Summary: This is an amazing camcorder at its price. I use it for surveillance during driving. It is tiny and light and can be mounted (through a small universal mount, purchased from other place) to my windshield quite stable.
Summary: I am new at making video files, so the first time using it was very awkward. But in a few minutes I started looking like an expert. I am using a video file converter. The video files are mpeg's from the camera! I would of liked better software for file loading.
