Summary: We bought this camera because we wanted a video camera and also needed to replace our normal camera. We didn't realize it doesn't have a light or flash of any kind, so situations where we can't adjust the lighting don't photograph well. Still pictures are so grainy that we now have to buy a separate camera.
Summary: bought this in June 2011, went to Europe in September 2011. My husband was trying to replay our gondola ride which he had recorded and put his thumb through the touch screen. We are attempting to have our Europe recordings recovered from the device. Had bought extra batteries and media cards for this model so to justify our investment we are buying another recorder just like the first one.
Summary: This is an excellent camera, always buy JVC this is my 3rd camera I try to stay up to date. However, since this is HD had some difficulty making DVD's for viewing on a DVD player, or even my computers. You must read instructions carefully!
Summary: I purchased this product fr theability to take HDVideo and mostly the sub-frame window that fouseson one person in a group ad zooms on him. I onli dislik the fact that I can`t get th time stamp wen I transfer the files to DVD. Othrthanthat it is awesome!!
