"JVC GZ-MG36"

I agree with reviews about software for these camcorders, when sold to us we were told to just plug in usb to our laptop download files and burn to disc, as easy as that............well NO it is definately not. It does not work that way, the software they provide at JVC is utterly useless, very complicated to find out it does not work. We were then told to buy Nero 7 at £60 which again does not really work well with these camcorders so dont be fooled into buying it. We then ended up buying a dvd recorder at £160.00 which does work but is long winded as you have to watch the whole lot to record it and cannot edit it. We have now bought a burning station at a further £60.00 so this camcorder has cost us a FORTUNE in total we could have bought a much better straight to disc SONY machine for what we have spent. It also has no NIGHT vision at all, great for parties!!!!!!!!!!!!! family parties which is where you would want to use it after all.
