thanks - will have to play with that
the microphone is on the back of the viewfinder
wind cut lowers microphone gain.
I suppose the other solution would be to eat less beans ;-)
third video will show you some hardware
we all need it
all the best

My goodness JVC didn't make it easy for me to find the official manual. Found it by going around the back door.
Ok, let's see what we have going on:
Standard def camcorder - fine for YouTube uploads
16:9 aspect ratio, yes you can do that to have video appear widescreen
You do have gain control to boost low light but shooting outside is groovy.
Wind Cut filter, yes you have one installed on the camcorder
1. Select Video Mode
3. Look for menu item Wind Cut
4. Select Wind Cut and touch Ok
Bada bing, you solve the wind cut problem.
So yes, go forth and make wind cut videos.
Just one teeny request. For your 11th video could you make one for science challenged people on why a free energy machine is possible?
Or a demonstration of a working model? Paper prototype?
What you are talking about is very important. I might not be the target market. But if I am then I am going to need a ramp up on the concepts you are talking about.
If not, never mind.
The important thing is to keep making videos
