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.
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.
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.
