Does it require any special software to actually convert and use the video or can you just use the raw video straight from the memory card?

The actual item. Still not a bad price, though.

Video review!

It’s $537 on Amazon… but if you click the link to the “newer model” - you’ll see the newer model is only $230. Must just be $537 from its original list price…

Buzzillions has this one rated at a 3.2 star average.

The touch border is a little weird, but you get used to it.

There are no extra codecs, as the output is not raw but direct to mpeg-4.

From CNET -
With some of the worst video quality I’ve seen in an HD camcorder of late, the best I can say about JVC’s entry-level HD Everio camcorder models is that they’re small and cheap. Though they’re $60 to $100 less than HD competitors, they’re defined by a tiny, insufficient-resolution-for-HD sensor, a 20x zoom lens with no optical image stabilization (only electronic), and the lowest-resolution LCD display in their class.

crazy people! so many posts already in minute 8?

I had this camera- was average - the 4GB was never enough so make sure you look at the price for an other card

goodnight crazy people!

How does it have a Minolta lens? Weren’t they bought out and absorbed in to Sony a few years back?

Not Mac compatible.

Crazy might be one word,…

Because Sony manufactures it and sells it under the Konica Minolta name, probably to avoid brand confusion. They probably also made the CCDs and display.
