Why Has it Scored 79?

reviews indicate that it has good user reviews with an average user rating of 80%. Looking across the entire Canon video camera range, the average reviews for all Canon camcorders are also excellent.

This JVC camcorder has some great features:
Bigger than average optical zoom
K2 technology in REC mode
Memory card slot for sdxc/sdhc/sd
40x optical zoom / 60x dynamic zoom / 200x digital zoom
1/5.8-inch 2.5m pixel back-illuminated CMOS
Mobile user guide optimised for smartphone viewing
Works with imovie and final cut pro X
Pixela everio mediabrowser 4 provided (for windows(r))

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each camcorder by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the camcorder is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec camcorders come to market, the older camcorders will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
