Color accuracy under low light better than all competing flagships
So the ideal PX100 customer will be looking for a little bit of both: A person who's interested in improving their technique or someone else's, but also maybe shooting some game footage from the bleachers too. We do think this represents a large portion of coaches and parents, and if you're one of them, don't be afraid to buy this unique camcorder.
Excellent small body, professional feature video camera
The GC-PX100 is an excellent camera that offers non-professional film-makers every feature they'll ever need and then some, sports coaches a unique way to monitor and evaluate performance and professionals a body that's small and light enough to sling into any bag and carry anywhere.
Solidly built all around
The PJ580 was priced below the PJ650V's competition, and had specs to match. The latest PJ-series camcorder is an upgrade, but it doesn't exceed what other manufacturers are doing. Ultimately, the choice you make among these three will have a lot to do with ergonomic preferences, specific feature needs, and/or the absolute need for 60p.
One of the best image quality
The image quality is amazing. You have a nice shallow depth of field with the manual dial. You have all the professional settings and you can do everything manually or you can put it on auto which is going to do an amazing job. The camera has aperture,Iris etc. it also has a bright projector which you can plug external devices to. overall this was one of the best purchase I have made.
Excellent in low light and dramatic settings
Those expecting a huge improvement over the HF G10 will be disappointed. The HF G20 builds on its predecessor's strengths and makes subtle, small improvements. Unless you're dead-set on shooting video with a DSLR, the HF G20 will fit the bill for anyone demanding high quality imaging coupled with a comprehensive array of manual controls.
Still, in some ways, it's easy to feel that Canon showed up a day late and a dollar short with the lack of 60p recording.
Perfect camera for the purpose
I'm a musician and use the camera do to register videos (using 3 cameras) do advertise my work on youtube and it works perfect for that. It works very well in low light situations like concert halls or jazz clubs and you can have some manual controls if you are operating and want a particular effect. But if I'm doing a more "cinematic" production and can be operating the manual focus I rather use a DSLR (I have a 7D) because of the option of better lens (almost the double of price).
Fulfills every expectation, with a surprise extra
I had reviewed the features on several models and settled on this one because of the low-light performance, external microphone plug, audio monitor plug, the ability to grab a still photo while recording video, and long, stabilized, zoom range. I was vaguely aware that it had a wi-fi card built in, but had not thought about how that might be useful.
Excellent value for money
The JVC GZ-EX515BEK offers an impressive feature set at a surprisingly low price. Image quality is good, however it's the breadth of features that mark the GZ-EX515BEK out. It incorporates the latest version of JVC's Wi-Fi connectivity, a host of creative options, and even an accessory shoe and microphone input. The only missing features are independent shutter and iris control. Overall though, for less than £300 it's a capable and well-rounded camcorder.
High-definition 1080/60p video recording
The JVC GZ-VX815 packs a hefty set of features - high-definition video capture, 12-megapixel photo capture, and just plain "fun" features - all in a small profile that will fit quite comfortably in your pants or shirt pocket. Think of it as the better way to capture video and still images than on your smartphone (if you got one of those, you can pair it to the camcorder for remote operation).
Fantastic optical image stabilization
Last year, in our review of the HDR-CX700V from Sony, we dreamed of a future where Sony would actually improve the low light performance of its high-end Handycams. This year, with the HDR-CX760V, that dream has become a reality. The CX760V is not only the strongest consumer camcorder Sony has released in a few years, but it's also one of the most impressive models we've reviewed all year.
The camcorder did everything well in our performance tests.
Fan Freaking Tastic!
Great option for videographers on a budget, but has the looks (and the specs) that gives customers the impression they're getting a lot for their money. I've had other pro-sumer cameras in the past from Sony (A1U, NEX-VG10) but this one beats them all. Definitely worth the buy for those with a 2k or less budget! Of course if the funding is there, more manual options would be nice but then you're probably looking to move into a different price bracket.
One of the best low light performances
The HDR-PJ710V churned out one of the best low light performances seen so far this year, essentially turning last yearâ?? s biggest weakness into one of this yearâ?? s greatest strengths. The new Sony PJ710V not only produces brighter images than last yearâ?? s CX700V, but it also showed far less noise and better colors than its predecessor. Sony also improved its SteadyShot image stabilization system, which was another area where last yearâ?? s CX700V had some trouble.
Impressive - Floating Lens is Uh-May-Zing!
Sony has certainly moved the video camera into the next century with this one. The HD video quality is pristine, and the camera is very easy to use. And the floating lens and tracking focus are exceptional. And I haven't personally seen these features on any other video camera. It is pricey, but this is a great video camera. I'll definitely be reaching more frequently for this one over my Canon.
iimpressive little projector with the camcorder.
This camcorder is fully loaded with every conceivable feature, and we believe it compares favorably to the best camcorders from Panasonic and Canon coming in 2012. The HDR-PJ710V is a Smart-Review top pick.
This is an excellent 3D camcorder, just okay for taking pictures
This camera has many features, most of which I have not used. It was very simple to open the box and begin recording great video. The video is excellent in daylight. I filmed a wedding and reception. The wedding was outside on a sunny day, the reception dinner was indoors and party outside after. I filmed some parts in 3D and others in 2D. In sunlight, both turned out perfectly. The picture was vivid and clear. Inside, was standard lighting, and the picture was slightly grainy.
Best in Class Optical Image Stabilization
This is one of those cameras that you can simply start using, right out of the box. It is that intuitive. I was blown away by its SteadyShot system - the image stabilization is truly best in class. When you view the clip in the comment below, remember that this was shot by a tired and excited parent, whooping like a kid, in indoor stadium lighting, often at full zoom. The focus is sharp, the images are clean, and the microphone clearly captures the videographer's very vocal enthusiasm.
