At first the camera looked like it was just a odinary one until i tried it. Wow everything was just so great 700X digital zoom could almost take any distant shot with just a click of a button. This Camera is fully loaded with image stabilizes and inbuilt light the rotatable lcd was simply facinating and it was very clear to me that this camera could take evryshot very clearly especially the image stabilizer comes in handy when you are travelling in a RV or a Car toshoot the outside Nature.
WOW THIS CAM IS REALLY WONDERFUL.

I'm really hard on stuff....I take a lot of those crazy action shots with my JVC and it does a great job with sound and picture. It's a pretty tough little camera too. I actually broke my first one and am purchasing another of the same because my videos came out great!

I bought this camera thinking since it was VHS it would perform better in low light (as did my older 8mm)than a digital one. WRONG. It also will drain the battery in 15 minutes. Resolution is poor with VHS mode and svhs tapes cost too much. Noisy tape makes me weary. Don't waste your money on this old"last of the mohicans" format. Just get a digital camcorder and buy a light.My $299. digital Sharp blows it away. I can't hardly give it away. Want mine for $150?

I own a number of JVC products so when I saw this unit on sale, I ordered it. I was well pleased. It is easy to use and setup. If you need a camcorder to begin on, then this is the one!

Verified Purchase
After using our old camcorder this is a dream. The size and weight make it so nice. I love the features too! Take the time to read the manual. It will make it easier to figure out the functions quickly.
