New JVC Everio MG 130

The manual with this camera is not so good. I can't set the date or time.

Also, this camera supposed has its own strobe for indoor shots but I can't find anything in the manual. I found "flash" but I think that's just for still shots.

Re: New JVC Everio MG 130

Hi, to set the time or date, first press the MENU button (beside the DIRECT DVD button). Nudge the joystick to the left to select which settings you want to edit. Then go up until you reach the general options. Nudge the joystick right. Move the joystick up until you see "CLOCK ADJUST". Here you can set the correct time. The light is really easy to access. In the shooting mode (where you are seeing live video from the lense), nudge the joystick down. The light should come on. Nudge it down again to put it on Auto. It will turn on/off depending on the lighting. Nudge it down a third time to turn it off. Hope this helps!
