Canon ZR60 or JVC GR-DVL30 ? (camcorder)

I need help deciding which digital camcorder to get.
I've narrowed it down between these 2.

The JVC ($399) is $100 less than the Canon ($499).

Give me your pros and cons for either one.

If you know somewhere it's sells for less please list it.

Thanks.

i havent tested that one, but its supposed to be almost as bad as the canon

if you goto circuit city, you can buy all those and mess with them and return them with 30 days (i did that with the canon zr 60 and a samsung one, which was better but not good enough)

if you try the jvc or something lmk
