Another great JVC product in my opinion.

I nearly chose a similarly priced non-HD video camera and then I got lucky and found this one and I am so happy I did.

I love that I can adjust the size of my SD disk to extend the video length.

This is the first used item I purchased via Amazon. I was happy to find that it is truly in "very good" condition and has all the features of a new one for about $100.00 less. The 40 times zoom is incredible. Of course, it is hard to hold still at full zoom without a tripod or bracing yourself or the camcorder against something solid. The
image stabilization helps, but can't stop all movement. I wanted this model camcorder because it captures in 720P rather than 1080(though files can be up-converted to 1080). The files are smaller(less than 1/2 of 1080)for storage and processing, yet provide HD impact that many won't differentiate from 1080. It will also capture in regular
quality for easy recording to a DVD. The camcorder was received quickly with everything but the Media Browser3 software. After an email to the seller, they located and sent the software soon after. I'm pleased with this vendor
as well as the camcorder.

Works like a charm. Lite-weight, easy to use, and can zoom in and bring your picture up close even at 100 yds. All I needed was a monopod to help steady it.

This is a great inexpensive camcorder that can perform like the expensive ones. It is very versatile and takes great videos. the recording controls are very convenient and easy to use. I particular like that fact that it is very light and easy to hold and takes standard SD cards. On the downside, the menu buttons are hard to see, black on black and it needs a larger battery, only good for 30 min max. Much larger replacement batteries are available though at a reasonable price on the internet.

Pros:
- Easy conversion to wmv format
- Nice range of picture quality options
- Good sound quality
- Good picture quality in the higher range formats
- Uses SDHC or SDXC disks (no more video tape)
- Able to film in low light (electricity went out)
- Optional longer length battery
- Works with standard light weight tripod
- Instructions state that you can extend filming time by using the power cord (haven't tried that yet
Cons:
- Tiny buttons with tiny lables (difficult to read and need finger nails to push)
- Have to purchase the SD card separately (there is 8gb built in)

I purchased this camera because my college requires me to record certain assignments. It is neccessary that my videos are converted to wmv format. The included software makes converting very simple. We had a little power outage and the room was a bit dark with some window light. It still captured a good picture. I love that I can adjust the size of my SD disk to extend the video length. Just a note, if you are using a SD card, make sure you have the camera set to record to SD.

For my purposes, I am very pleased with my purchase.

The picture quality is excellent. The instructions are concise and easy to follow. They are the best instructions I have seen with any camera purchase.

This camera works great and does everything it should. The battery life on it how ever is gargabe. It charges to full and dies in just a few hours.

This video camera is SMALL! It's almost too small for my hands and I'm not a big guy at 5'7" and average weight. I actually bought it for my son and he thinks it feels great when he uses it. The camera may be small but the picture is certainly BIG and AWESOME! I nearly chose a similarly priced non-HD video camera and then I got lucky and found this one and I am so happy I did. It doesn't have the super great low-light performance of the high-dollar cameras, but for what he'll be using it for it's more than adequate. I've borrowed it a lot to use for birthday parties, indoor and outdoor events, etc. and I've been very pleased with the results. The only bad thing I can say about it is regarding the battery. JVC chose to include a rather small capacity battery with it and wants to sell you additional larger capacity batteries at a significant price. I think the battery fully charged will go for about a half hour which isn't long enough for most events. When using it around the house I use a tripod and connect the supplied charger to power the camera which works well. The included 8GB memory is much more than I need and the zoom is really good.

Overall, it's a great camera for the money.
