An okay camcorder


This is a nice camcorder. I'd say it's best feature is that it has a mic jack so that you can hook up an external mic. The internal mic isn't too bad considering the price. However, in the case you are interested in film making, it's a common rule ...

mic jack

lack of manual white balance, sub par image in low light situations

The Last Of A Dying Breed Of Classic Hi-8 Performers???


Upon entering your favorite camcorder shop these days you will notice that at least 90% of the displayed models are of the Mini-DV format from brands like Panasonic, Sony, Canon and of course...JVC. ...

Easy to use! Suitable for novice and pro alike! Hi quality audio and video! Price!

Not STEREO. Awkward "Zoom" control. Sony's "Info-Lithium system" is better. Sluggish focus. A/V Mini.
