Which says:
This compact Mini-DV model from JVC is one of the lowest-scoring camcorders. Poor video quality is the main problem; you'd be better off with one of our Best Buys.
Camcorders often struggle to achieve good video quality under artificial or dim light conditions; this model more than most. Under artificial light, the video came out too bright with a yellowy/gold colour cast. The autofocus system isn’t very good either. It’s slow, not as reliable as most other models, and under dim light conditions it really struggles.
Sound quality from the built-in microphone is outclassed, but just about acceptable. One plus point to this camcorder is the excellent battery life. You get over 2 hours of recording time on a single charge.
There’s also a powerful optical zoom – x28. Use a tripod if you want to use it fully however. These 2 features aren’t enough to save this camcorder though – overall it’s not a good choice.
Pros: Excellent battery life
Cons: Poor video quality
