If it says JVC on it and it's not a VCR, don't bother. The only camera brands you should really ever consider, unless you have a special case, are Canon, Panasonic, and Sony. With JVC, you won't be getting your money's worth, get an HV30 instead.
Why? Do some research, watch some videos.
Yea I've been looking at HV30's also. I just can't find one for under 600. Im still not sure if Im gonna take this guy up on his offer. I'll check out the HV30's a little more. I know they're probably the best camera for me, but its the just the price, I'm kinda short on cash right now.
