    Pros: Lightweight, 3.5 Display, Excellent Resolution, USB/Firewire Connectivity, 700x Digital Zoom, Good Audio, Built-In Light
    Cons: Battery life could be longer.

    Pros: Very affordable, quality video w/ built-in digital stills and tons of FX...
    Cons: You'll need a spare long-life battery with this impressive 3.5" LCD!

    Summary: This was my first Digital Camcorder purchase. I previously owned a 1984 Hitachi shoulder mount S-VHS video camera and decided that it was too old and too heavy. My wife and I decided to buy the JVC GR-DVL720 to record family home videos. We ... read more

    Dec 31, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of features, including oversized LCD viewfinder and digital camera functionality
    Cons: Eats too much power; can be an ergonomic nightmare; no A/V in

    Summary: I picked this camera out without giving much thought to its ergonomics, and that was probably a bad move. It's a pretty good unit otherwise -- excellent quality viewfinder, a substantial library of special effects, perfect compatibility with iMovie (my ... read more

    Pros: Great quality digital video plus excellent still pics.
    Cons: Original Batter could last longer.

    Summary: We shopped extensively for a digital video camera. We tried them all out at the stores, and decided on purchasing a JVC. The $799 Best Buy price was easily beaten by ibuydigital.com (we paid $567). This camera is very easy to shoot digital video ... read more

    Pros: Compact and easy to use.
    Cons: Short battery life.

    Summary: Apart from a few "ease-of-use" issues--which well could have been remedied by a simple reading of the user's manual, I have thoroughly enjoyed using this camera. It interacts well with my computer software, and--once mastered--has some interesting and ... read more

    Pros: long distance and closeup focus, allows you to see exactly whats going on your recording.
    Cons: battery voltage, doesn't keep a very long charge

    Summary: This is an absolute must if you plan on going out of town for a trip or going on vacation. this little number seems as if it could do just the same, if not more than the more expensive brands. the only difference is the price. now tell me, who would ... read more
