    Having used DSLRs for a while, I missed having motorized zoom and not have the aperture step down hard as you zoom in, the exposure maintains throughout the zoom when manually setting the aperture to f/2.8, very nice and fast. Also no visible chromatic abberation, you do get it wide open.Other issue I had with DSLRs was the audio, I did hack my 60D and T2i to disable AGC, but wasn't happy with over all quality of audio, despite all my testing. This camera addreses that issue, high quality audio recording when paired with good shotgun mic or wireless system.Timelapse- I do plenty of. Having a mirror-less camera do capture timelapse as oppose to having my DSLRs shoot thousands of shots for a 10-20 sec playback wasn't going to work in the long run. Shutter actuations will eventuallly reach it's max and DSLR is dead. So this camera again satisfies my needs to have mirror less timelapse with manual exposure settings. The unique look - I didn't want to buy a "handycam" looking equipment next to my DSLRs. Even at this price range, there are no camera out there that looks semi-professional. However, this is a tiny camera, so accesorizing will turn this into a beast looking thing.The manual control buttons for focus/exposure are also one of my must have feature. As a DSLR shooter, I became accustomed to it. Also an an easy transition of using this from DSLRs. Continious recording - DSLRs have those 12min max limits. So this camera fill the gap and becomes my "cover shot" perfect for events that require continues footage. It also makes editing much easier since I have something to fall back on while DSLRs capturing b-rolls and more filmic shots.Dynamic Range: Seems to clip much fast in the highlights, I attached a ND Fader to lower exposure just enough to remove zebra stripes, while maintaining 180 degree shutter @ f/2.8 then just slightly increase shadows/midtones in post.Bitrate: Pretty darn good, not nearly as DSLR's bitrate but higher than other cameras in this price range.HDMI output: Attaching a very nice feature to have HDMI only show the picture, without all the other camera display info, just your picture. Perfect for doing interviews and greatly helps with focusing and for anyone also needing to observe what you're seeing. Wifi - Needs some improvement but not completely useless. Camera has wifi antenna and can send its own wifi "hotspot" for your mobile device to connect. A little gimmicky, but the nice thing is, when you want to upload remotely via phone but use the camera to capture the action, then this is the solution. Also good for discreet filming, using the iPhone as a monitor. There is a delay during actual recording, but plays realtime once you download wireless from camera to phone, or view it from the camera itself.Overall, I'm very pleased with this camera, I knew the shortcomings upon purchasing it, I can only hope that JVC will release a firmware that will completely address some of the issues to make this a complete "FlagShip" camera. Here's my wish list:#1: Enable 24p#2: 120fps @ 720p#3: Color/Face Focus tracking on Manual mode#4: Zoom Focus Assist (maybe hold down MF for 2 sec to activate it?)#5: 1,2,3 sec shutter speed#6: Wifi U-Stream#7: Enable hotspot via mobile device to stream remotely on-location, #8: Make top Menu screen, the Camera settings screen. (quicker access to comon controls)If only one could be achieved, atleast make 720p recording for 120/240 fps.

    Positive:-The slow motion is definitively something nice to have-The DSLR shape resulted in a very intuitive control layout.-Pretty good on closeups. -Made for shooting sports.Negative-Slow motion is a cool feature but is capable to record at very low (almost useless) video quality. It's true though that you can choose a not-that-fast-frame-per-seconds, but what's the point to have this camcorder, then?-Focus has an horrendous performance on low light situation (an indoor birthday party is considered an extreme low light situation?)-Image stabilization is just not enough (compared with panasonic's)-Video quality doesn't feel right. Colours and shadows looks artificial or just bad quality... not acceptable at this level of price.I was so disappointed that for the first time I returned something to BHphotovideo ......

      Comments about JVC GC-PX100 Full HD Everio Camcorder:

      This camera feels great to hold onto for shooting video from many positions, thanks to the multi-angled view screen. However none of the positions face forward. Much better ergonomically than shooting video with a DSLR but still small and looks like a good tourist camera, as opposed to a pro camera.
      The touch screen menu is very responsive and menu layout is easy to navigate.
      Image quality is pretty decent for this price range and clips can nicely be modified in post colour correction.
      Not quite as good in low light as I expected. However the grain produced is smoother than other cameras I have.

        One big reason I got this particular one, is it has an input for my wireless Mic!

Slow motion, wi-fi, a very sensitive F-1.2 lens. I have gotten two of these for mulit-cam shooting of events. I love this camera!

            Took a chance on the camera to use for online broadcasting. Was I surprised. It took to the internet like a fish to water. It's light and is very versatile. It's gives the larger cameras a run for it's money. It's perfect for a shoot where you need extra cameras. I bought two and can't complain.

                  This is an extremely useful tool for making quick and easy pro quality video.
                  Instant playback on the touch screen and the thumb dial frame speed control are my favorite features. Zoom button is intuitive and allows a slower zoom if desired. Takes a little practice to get some great results. 600 fps slow motion is very smooth, but at a smaller screen resolution. Using the 240 fps seems to be the sweet spot. All-in-all very happy with this product.

                  Comments about JVC GC-PX100 Full HD Everio Camcorder:

                  I bought this product for sub video camera. Well I expect for several functions. but some of them don't or terrible.

                  Hot shoe.
                  What a good point. Only this video camera has shot shoe in consumer camcorder. You can expand with many accessories especially microphone.

                  Unique design.
                  because of the battery's location, this camcorder looks longer or kind of gun style. Doesn't effect your handling.

                  Touch screen.
                  Half awesome and half worst. This video camera doesn't have any buttons for several functions. Even the arrow key is not exist! Everything is control by touching(record, mode, and some options can be control with buttons) Look like it's awesome but this is very disappointed to me. You can see that even the highest price of cameras does not use touch screen because it's not helpful and hard to use. This touch screen make me mad when I am doing work.

                  Worst menu.
                  With touch screen, controlling the menu screen is very very disappoint. When you touch each option, you have to start at the beginning of the menu. Such as go to menu, touch setting, touch any option, done, and back to the screen. Which means you have to touch every time for each options...

                  BAD BAD BAD Microphone sound control function.
                  This video camera support only +2 to -2. This can not help you to take loud or quiet sound. because of this, this video camera can not be use in any little bit loud place in order to have clear sound. Even you use microphone, it won't help.

                  Zoom.
                  Nice smooth to zoom in and out. It has option to use flash light which is control by setting(...)It has limited zooming than other video camera but it keeps the image quality as well.

                  Sport.
                  It support upto 600FPS for slow motion with low quality. It will helps people who are teaching sports especially coach. You can take in slow motion and see the position to check the action. Also it also has score board for game play. I think this video camera is made for sports player.

                  Conclusion
                  Bad microphone sound control
                  Worst menu touching
                  great quality of video and zoom
                  awesome option for slow motion
                  Not bad
                  good option: hot shoe

It a sports camera but more than that. In creative hands it is a powerful tool for a any kind of video one might want to shoot. Slo mo and time lapse capability is very cool.

                        It was a big struggle choosing one among these 3 camcorders (Canon VXA HF 620, Panasonic HC-X900M and JVC GC-PX100) after extensive research of reviews and video postings on YOUTUBE I settled for the JVC GC-PX100 and it's the best choice and I have no regrets at all. I have given it a thorough test from picture quality, sound and low light and it rocks.The price is right and the design is slick.

                        Having used DSLRs for a while, I missed having motorized zoom and not have the aperture step down hard as you zoom in, the exposure maintains throughout the zoom when manually setting the aperture to f/2.8, very nice and fast. Also no visible chromatic abberation, you do get it wide open.Other issue I had with DSLRs was the audio, I did hack my 60D and T2i to disable AGC, but wasn't happy with over all quality of audio, despite all my testing. This camera addreses that issue, high quality audio recording when paired with good shotgun mic or wireless system.Timelapse- I do plenty of. Having a mirror-less camera do capture timelapse as oppose to having my DSLRs shoot thousands of shots for a 10-20 sec playback wasn't going to work in the long run. Shutter actuations will eventuallly reach it's max and DSLR is dead. So this camera again satisfies my needs to have mirror less timelapse with manual exposure settings. The unique look - I didn't want to buy a "handycam" looking equipment next to my DSLRs. Even at this price range, there are no camera out there that looks semi-professional. However, this is a tiny camera, so accesorizing will turn this into a beast looking thing.The manual control buttons for focus/exposure are also one of my must have feature. As a DSLR shooter, I became accustomed to it. Also an an easy transition of using this from DSLRs. Continious recording - DSLRs have those 12min max limits. So this camera fill the gap and becomes my "cover shot" perfect for events that require continues footage. It also makes editing much easier since I have something to fall back on while DSLRs capturing b-rolls and more filmic shots.Dynamic Range: Seems to clip much fast in the highlights, I attached a ND Fader to lower exposure just enough to remove zebra stripes, while maintaining 180 degree shutter @ f/2.8 then just slightly increase shadows/midtones in post.Bitrate: Pretty darn good, not nearly as DSLR's bitrate but higher than other cameras in this price range.HDMI output: Attaching a very nice feature to have HDMI only show the picture, without all the other camera display info, just your picture. Perfect for doing interviews and greatly helps with focusing and for anyone also needing to observe what you're seeing. Wifi - Needs some improvement but not completely useless. Camera has wifi antenna and can send its own wifi "hotspot" for your mobile device to connect. A little gimmicky, but the nice thing is, when you want to upload remotely via phone but use the camera to capture the action, then this is the solution. Also good for discreet filming, using the iPhone as a monitor. There is a delay during actual recording, but plays realtime once you download wireless from camera to phone, or view it from the camera itself.Overall, I'm very pleased with this camera, I knew the shortcomings upon purchasing it, I can only hope that JVC will release a firmware that will completely address some of the issues to make this a complete "FlagShip" camera. Here's my wish list:#1: Enable 24p#2: 120fps @ 720p#3: Color/Face Focus tracking on Manual mode#4: Zoom Focus Assist (maybe hold down MF for 2 sec to activate it?)#5: 1,2,3 sec shutter speed#6: Wifi U-Stream#7: Enable hotspot via mobile device to stream remotely on-location, #8: Make top Menu screen, the Camera settings screen. (quicker access to comon controls)If only one could be achieved, atleast make 720p recording for 120/240 fps.

                        This is an excellent camcorder with great features and ease of use. I use this camcorder mainly for home and family use. In that regard the camcorder meets and exceeds all my needs. It is easy for the entire family to use and the auto features let everyone take very nice videos and pictures without lengthy explanations. We really enjoy the great quality of HD video. The low light capabilities are very convenient for taking good quality video without having to stop and get a light. I have not tried all the high speed features yet but so far I really like the ones I have used.
                        The form of this camcorder is unusual but very nice. I really like the look and feel and the ease of use of features and controls even while shooting videos that this camcorder has.
                        The lens light shade was the only problem. It was very hard to put on requiring a very hard twist that feels like you are going to hurt the camcorder but you won't. The camcorder is very solid and sturdy and yet it is a very comfortable size to handle.
                        This was also the only camcorder in it's class and price range that offered a view finder with these capabilities. I was not happy I had to pay extra for it but in the end I was happy to have one. Canon has a model that has a view finder but the competing features are not nearly as nice as the JVC. The JVC GC-PX100 also comes with a light shade for the LCD screen which is very nice but I still like to use the viewfinder to see everything clearly in bright sunlight.
                        We really enjoy the ability to take photo's (2.1mp) while taking videos and taking rapid fire pictures at 12mp quality in photo mode.
                        This is an all around great camcorder with high end features and excellent quality HD video in several formats of your choice. The high speed video will make video production and options of what you can capture a lot more exciting. The wifi features are sure to be a hit as I have not used them yet but will be testing that out in a few weeks. I am a little old school but really like the new technology and all the ways this enhances the videographers capabilities. Taking video from your camcorder and viewing and controlling it from your phone or tablet!!! That's Amazing…
                        Great Job JVC!
