Colour Name: Black
This camcorder is fantastic for the price. It's great for the beginner/amateur film maker, it's simple to use, and has great features usually associated with higher end cameras. However, there are a few bad things.

Pros:
- Cheap: A great price, most similar models from other brands are more expensive.

- Simple: Extremely easy to use, it only takes 5 minutes to familiarise yourself with the settings.

- Great Features: For example, the touch screen is great, the Zoom is good, and the variety of quality settings is fantastic.

Cons:
- As mentioned in other reviews, battery life is an issue. Basically, the battery life is around 40 minutes, so is not great for longer event recording. However, a lot of camcorders are so, and the Ex-Pro unofficial (but very good) replacement battery improves the life drastically, and for a lot cheaper than the official JVC ones.

- Memory. If you want to record in the higher end qualities (as you do), it takes up so much more memory. Whilst this isn't so bad considering you know the quality is going to be great, it is an issue if you have no memory card or a small one. I would suggest at least a 16GB one to be able to cope with a decent amount of footage.

- The sounds are annoying! Luckily there is a silent mode though.

- I don't find this a problem personally, but a negative review mentioned this so I thought I'd touch on it. This JVC camera (like similar camcorders such as Sony) records in AVC-HD. This is because of the high quality, but it does mean files cannot be read in certain editing softwares etc. It's annoying, but i'm pretty sure there is a conversion tool that is compatible with AVC-HD.

Small enough to fit in a trouser pocket, very light and easy to use. Would have given 5 stars, but the battery only lasts 40 mins, to upgrade the battery is £36 for a 90 min battery.
Would I buy another? yes, but I would check out battery life on other models first.

Very pleased with this camera. Its very light, compact and takes stunning videos. When plugged into my LG television via the HDMI input, the picture is clearer than my television reception (even HI-Def). I dont know if this is available on other makes/models but this camera is able to Auto Record, ie, it can be left switched on and will automaticaly take a still picture or video clip when movement is detected, ideal for surveilance of persons/annimals etc. Also it can Time Lapse videos for opening flowers for example. Only downside is the battery that comes with the camera is low capacity and you will probably need a better one for any serious work. The proper JVC data battery is best, its expensive but a lot cheaper at Amazon, where I ordered mine.

Bought as a present for my wife, who isn't the most gadget loving person. But she loves it. Really easy to use and she managed to work it out for her self after about 20 minutes.
