It's a good camera at first, it does what it's supposed to for about a year or so then I got a nice blurring in my recording and on screen. I have read that some others have fallen apart. My camera works on and off now mainly off and someone else I know had their unit stop working under a year. I have upgraded to a new Canon MD225. Perfect.
It's a bit like the Fuji cameras and the 'zoom error" they get for no reason.
My overall opinion is that it is not worth considering even as a cheap used item because it will stop working. Steer clear ...of JVC! Price when new was not too hefty. Good functionality and image is OK for a cheaper unit. Poor construction. Bad in low light. And of course the CCD will fail after a short time, if not something else.
This camera lasted the 12 month warranty period. After that the on-off switch stopped working (repaired under an extended warranty), the lcd screen stopped working (ext warranty repair), the CCD stopped working (replaced under ext warranty) then the dreaded condensation warning kicked in (replaced under ext warranty). The condensation warning has now kicked in again, rendering the camera useless. The ext. warranty is no longer valid as it only covers repairs up to a total value of the camera purchase price. The camera has spent more time being repaired than being used. I would not recommend this camera to anyone.
Very high zoom capability
Low quality construction and parts. Still photos are very poor quality.
in part of quality is very good but the price is too expensive so i think this video camera recorder used by the proffesional shooter.so the most important maybe the price can be more cheaper
this product have high resolution and good lens and this product is very comfortable to use for the last i am very like with the mode
i think the price is too expensive
My overall opinion would be to advise people not to buy this camera. Honestly, it wasn't very good and a lot of people have had trouble with it.
Easy to use after reading the instructions, small, aesthetic, compact, takes great outdoor footage, good digital stills and video in automatic mode. Easily connected to the computer with the USB cable and software loads quickly.
Trying to make it work indoors or under unnatural light. Battery life is very short, runs out quickly. Condensation problem, JVC has a complete lack of service and if , on the off chance, they do try to help you...its bad.

good decent priced camera. easy to use.has light as well which I haven't worked out how to use yet!!
have only used once but it seems easy to use and software took a while to load but once loaded it didn't take long to figure out how to use it.
Was dissappointed about this breakdown at first,but will be much happier knowing JVC are coming to the party...Fixing the problem.
not bad, what you would expect
Easy to use after coming to grips with the Instructions. Compact and lite.
About to go for an overseas holiday to see the Children and Grandchildren then 2 months out of the warranty period comes trouble..."lens cap on" after taking the cap off. But the news is not all bad just yet. Called Hagemeyer (JVC agents Aust)1300-728-225. Asked to send it to a service agent (name and phone no. and address given cheerfully) and was told it would be fixed under warranty.
Great little camera for it's price, we got ours cheap from a family member who couldn't work it out. Need to be somewhat computer literate to understand it too apparently (as told by computer illits), does what we want it to though, handy to have wherever we go esp due to the fast power up time.. which is quicker than our last cam.
Very compact and pretty easy to use once you get to know the menu's and what all the buttons are for. Takes great outdoor footage, still trying to make it work indoors.
Having trouble filming/snapshotting indoors or under unnatural light. Battery life could be longer, otherwise no complaints
great little camera has its own tripod and a remote controll drawback get the larger battery when you buy it
easy to use compact
definatly needs the larger battery
