Summary: I have just purchased this camcorder, for Â£249.99, a big jump from the Â£900 reviewed price. Having read many reviews, including cnets, I still went ahead and grabbed one. I'll never use the high-speed video option, this gimick didn't put me off as I was more interested in the Full HD side of...
Pros: Very good video image quality, also stills are great.
Cons: The high speed video I don't use, Laser touch, should have been touch screen.
Summary: The camera itself looks sturdy and cosmetically good. The sensor on this puppy is really a toy. With two 100 watt halogen bulbs, it can barely get the image to correct brightness level unless you turn on the gain which makes the image well...grainy. Not HD at all.
Summary: This camera offers functions not often found in video cameras at this price range . Its slow motion (high fps) capabilities gives an additional tool for sports trainers to demonstrate kinetic movement without loss of quality visuals.
Summary: PROS: Great Camera with High Megapixels Still Shots (9.0MP) and Cheap Price CONS: Short Battery (1hr 30 minutes full charge) and only 5X Optical Zoom Overall for the Price I love this Camera and would Recommend to anyone in this price Range. I love that you can Take pictures while recording Videos.
Summary: I've done a lot of research before getting this product. In particular I was interested in the largest CMOS sensor I can get "for the buck". I took a chance and purchased mine used, but I got an excellent deal. This camera will shoot absolutely stunning quality video in sufficient light conditions.
Great Blu-Ray Videos. Does not replace Point&Shoot by any measure.

Summary: After VHS, MiniDV, and MiniDVD, this is my 4th generation of camcorder. The video quality is simply great. The 5X zoom ratio is sufficient for most uses. Software supplied covers major basic chores.
Summary: JVC really missed an opportunity to offer a good prosumer camera with the x900. I have an older Sony HD camera now, which I paid almost $2000 for about 6 years ago. It still works great, but is weak on still images and low light video.
Summary: We bought this camera last summer - it worked for about a month before the lens cover stopped working properly. We paid to ship it to the JVC Service Center in Texas, who informed us that the repair would be $500, as they wanted to 'fix' other things, such as the optical block, prism assembly, and...
Summary: This is without a doubt the best camera / video camera combination on the market. The video is absolutely outstanding and surpasses my prior camera the sanyo Xacti HD 1000 by far - and I thought that camera was outstanding. The photos are also brilliant with great color saturation and reproduction.
