Summary: This is an easy to use video camera that records a great HD quality picture without being fussy or requiring much know how. It's perfect for recording family events, friends, and other casual activities. It takes pretty decent video even under fairly low light conditions, and it surprised me with how well it captures fast action, such as sports.
Summary: I used this camcorder for a few months, video quality is Great but camcorder behaves strange in low light. If you are using HD video and light is low.. humm.. better you move to SD setting or it would records frames not the video. Readers, please let me know if I have wrong settings so that I would correct it and my review too. I liked JVC as I had one JVC SD camcorder and thought HD would be a better option. But believe me, rest is as good as the manufacturer says.
Summary: If you really like this product and you want to trust on other positive reviews, I would say buy it but not from amazon and definitely not from discount jungle. let me try to explain you in short, one of my uncles was going away from the country and he wanted to give to his son as a gift, he liked this one.
Summary: Amazing picture quality, 1080p from such a compact unit. 40x OPTICAL zoom is very impressive as well. Clear zooming without any "digitizing" so images are crystal clear. The video from this camcorder is comparable to prosumer camcorders costing thousands more. Good job JVC.
Summary: I'll first start off by saying that this is quite an impressive product. I wasn't expecting too much out of this, but it definitely surpassed my expectations. One thing I noticed right off the bat is how user friendly it is. Most camcorders I've encountered have had pages of instructions which are not even helpful and still leave me confused on how to use the product. Luckily, that is not the case for this one.
Summary: Excellent cost-effective. The standard battery lasts just over an hour and a half. You must purchase a larger battery if your plans are shooting for various parts of the day without recharging. The picture and sound quality is excellent, however, there is minimal loss in quality over 30x. At high zoom also loses focus sometimes if the object being photographed passes near the field of view of an object closer.
