Hot camera!

 

I examined most of the other competitors (Sony, Panasonic, Canon, Sharp) in this price range (under $600) and I found this to be the best deal.

Lightweight, 3.5 Display, Excellent Resolution, USB/Firewire Connectivity, 700x Digital Zoom, Good Audio, Built-In Light

Battery life could be longer

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

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
