"Awesome Camcorder!!! Buy it!!!!!"5.0 starson by kcsun48
Pros: I love this camcorder! No disks, no tapes! It was so light . I need a tripod for it because with the zoom I can't seem to keep from having the shaking in there. The zoom let me camcord a mother bird all the way up in the tree with clarity!
Cons: There isn't anything I don't like about this camcorder. Suggest getting a tripod though for any zooming to the max because it is hard to keep the shake out .
Summary: I have used this camcorder for everything! The zoom is amazing ..and it isn't distorted like I thought it would be. I have camcordered animals up close with the zoom that I couldn't even get close too with a normal camcorder. I love not having to have disks and tapes! The controls on screen are easy to read and easy to funcion. The convenience of a HD rather than tapes or disks is my biggest reason for buying this and haven't been disappointed. The size of it is awesome. I can put it in my purse or just use the shoulder strap and it weighs nothing! I had a sony handycam before this. I loved it but the weight and bulk of it got too much for me since I do alot of camcording. I gave my son my Sony since he has bigger hands to operate it. This camcorder has enabled me to to cam everything at a moments notice with the Auto ON when you open the viewing screen. This camcorder is awesome!!! I would highly recommend buying it. You will not be disappointed...WELL DONE JVC!!!!!.
