In reading camera reviews on various video cameras I noticed comments concerning the format used in the video recording format of the camcorders. Just a note on this. If you are the owner of a MacBook or other Mac device, there is a handy "import" feature that will convert the video to a "mov" file which is then easy to work with, whether uploading on YouTube or just viewing on the computer. It made my life easier!

Full HD, nice picture, and pretty good sound for a camera that costs so little. I use these as secondary cameras all the time.

This review is for the JVC Models GZ-E10, GZ-HM35, GZ-HM40 and its variations.

Given the heritage of JVC products, my expectations were relatively high. Though I'm sure the unit is mechanically and electronically sound, I found the ergonomics to be disastrous. From other reviews I understood that the unit was small and not for those with larger hands. I felt I was safe because my hands are small.

However, this unit was small even for my hands - perhaps a good candidate for children. Here are the ergonomic weaknesses I found:

1. No matter how I positioned the strap, I could not seem to get a comfortable and useful grip on the device.

2. With the battery projecting from the back of the unit, it was nearly impossible for my thumb to reach the record button. I imagine it would even be worse with the extended-life (and depth) of the larger batteries. I suppose one could use the index finger of the right hand.

3. The Play, Up/Left, Down/Right, OK/Info, and Menu buttons run down the inside rear of the camcorder and are impossible to press with one's thumb. I found I have to use my index finger (or fingernail) from my other hand to press these tiny buttons. Though it would probably be too much to expect for the cost of this unit, it could have benefited from a pushbutton wheel with center OK as is popular with many digital cameras. Backlighting would also be helpful to identify the buttons, so don't expect to press any controls at Becky's recital without a flashlight.

4. The index finger is supposed to rest on the Wide/Tele lever. But just behind the lever is a rarely used button toggling between Auto and Manual modes. I don't know why this option couldn't have been selectable from a menu.

I love it! Films really clear. No problem with the battery. Might be a problem it you were videoing something like a wedding or a birthday party. Just out for a day videoing isn't a problem. I did order me a bigger backup battery but I was on vacation for a week and never needed it. Easy to use and easy to connect to the computer. Was afraid that night time video would be a problem without a light but was happy with that to. For the money I am really happy!

I bought this for my 9 year old grandson. He loves making videos. It's easy to use and picture quality is great

This item was good then quickly became bad. After using it for a month, the camera begins to shake nonstop while recording. I tried mounting it to a tripod and it didn't make a difference. It could just be my camera that's only doing this and not every model. My advice is cheap things are dangerous. Spend a little more and get yourself something better.

I Have nothing bad to say. I'm using it as a Dashcam. I picked a auto charger dc power source and it operates for 12 hrs with a 64gig media card. Perfect.
