I decided to upgrade from an sd camcorder to an HD camcorder. Since the E200 had the features I was looking for and the price was right, I purchased it.
The video is extremely sharp, and the zoom works great. I did upgrade thebattery as the standard battery is only good for about 40 minutes.
Now, as to the bad. After installing the supplied software and shooting a short video, I used the editing software. It is very basic but worked until it got to the burning a disc section.
It would not burn a disc. After calls to JVC ,who handed me off to the software manufacturer,their comments were, it will NOT work on AMD based computers nor is it compatible with Win 8.
Now,I ask you, how many AMD cpu computers are out in the world ?
I did buy after market software that works,Corel Videostudio x6.
From a 5 star camcorder,it now rates maybe a 2 and a half.
