"i love it!!!"on by fearonwashere
Pros Recodrs in HD
Summary I like it cause its good to film skateboarding if you have a handle
Pros This little camera is awesome, better than a $500 camcorder I previously bought. It's simple, my little girl uses it and did not ever read the instructions...I didn't either. For the price, you cannot find anything better.
Cons I have to agree with the editors on the tiny little strap to hold it. It's not the most comfortable. I just use the wrist strap so it won't fall if I drop it. They do need to redesign it,... a little more cushy perhaps :)
Summary Bottom-line....this is a great camcorder. I love it, especially to satisfy the bottom dollar. It is a fantastic buy, and for more than you would expect from other camcorders in this price range.
Pros Great Picture quality for a standard def camcorder
Cons None found yet
Summary I love this camcorder. It produces great video. I like the two sd card slots which means I have double the capacity and when full it continues to record onto the other card. The best thing is that this camcorder is easy to use.
Pros Ease of setup and use; from shoot to YouTube in 5 minutes; Lasertouch navigation thru menus is great.
Cons nothing yet
Summary This camcorder is the best for home movies. This camera is meant to replace a Sony 8 mm Handycam that requires occasional "percusive maintenance" (a careful slap to the side) to operate. I did the research to compare Sony,JVC,and Canon for the following features: under $300 price, SD/Memory Stick media, good quality picture, and ease of use--without a lot of features that I would never use. The main use for this camera will be to easily shoot family events that can be uploaded to YouTube and Facebook or sent to a DVD.
The JVC MS120BU (black case)that I chose matched all of my requirements. I bought the camera with an 8GB memory card; while I am currently not needing the dual memory card feature, it is good to know that the storage capability is there. I played with all the menu selections, and left everything on Auto at this time. I loaded the enclosed software on my laptop, shot a short video, and sent it to YouTube. No problems. I did look at the manual briefly, but did not really need it beyond identifying where the buttons all were. The Lasertouch feature took a few minutes to master as I have a heavy touch, and it is very sensitive. Holding the camera took a bit of practice. I use just the wrist strap for safety and hold the camera using the pinkie and next finger. The middle finger runs the wide/telephoto button; the index finger takes snapshots, and the thumb runs the record button. The resulting video shows no shake with this setup.
I really have no need to do much editing of the results -- it is what it is -- family pictures. Beyond changing the order of scenes, there's not much editing to do. Some of the negative reviews mention features not intended for this camera. Those who aspire to filmaking and professional editing should look into more expensive camcorders.
Pros Good image quality for a standard def camcorder.
Two SD card slots
Cons Stills are average but hey its a camcorder.
Summary I am a proud owner of one and I must say the image quality is pretty good even in dim situations. It was a clever idea to make a camcorder with two SD card slots and a AV input. I am in the process of converting my old tapes into the camcorder which will convert to a digital format so that I can upload the files to my latest Ulead software to digitally remaster. The camcorder is light and compact too. The stills aren't that crash hot but remember its a camcorder and I'm getting alot of features for what I paid for. You tube upload was easy too.
