Top quality video at an affordable price

 

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.

Very affordable, quality video w/ built-in digital stills and tons of FX

You'll need a spare long-life battery with this impressive 3.5" LCD

Great tech -- needs a new package

 

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...

Lots of features, including oversized LCD viewfinder and digital camera functionality

Eats too much power ; can be an ergonomic nightmare ; no A/V in

JVC 720U-- a great value

 

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).

Great quality digital video plus excellent still pics

Original Batter could last longer

Product Specifications

Create with this JVC GR-DVL720 digital Cybercam camcorder. In this supreme device the slim and nifty design is combined with the high functionality. Auto White Balance adjusts for different indoor light sources so that colors appear natural. Manual White Balance is useful when shooting under various types of lighting. Digital Image Stabilizer helps eliminate camera shake. Snapshot mode freezes an image, frames it with a white border (like a still photograph) or a drop-shadow, and even adds an accompanying camera shutter sound effect. Iris Lock function allows the iris to be locked so that after focusing on a close subject, even when the subject moves away, the image will not darken. Use it when shooting a moving subject, when zooming, when the subject changes its distance (thus its size in the LCD monitor or the viewfinder), or when you want to lock the brightness level.
