I bought this camcorder mainly because my other 1 malfunctioned. I was not delighted about needing to invest in a new just one but after acquiring this a single and making use of for about 5years now. . I really like it and am glad i obtained it.

Financial and with ample capabilities. I acquired this camcorder at newegg (for 109 refurbished, seriously low-cost suitable?. Haha) very well, this little camcorder is compact and light. A few many years back one this compact was various hundred bucks. This a person fits in the palm of your hand, and the high quality of movie is terrific. You can master how to use the manual configurations and make the video glance specialist or just use the ‘auto’ and let it do everything for you, other than the zooming. It will alter instantly in any case to a first rate location. There is other settings that i haven’t employed such as macro (for closeups), 600x zoom (i only use the 30x optical zoom). The aim is computerized, or you can manually adjust it.

    My old jvc gr-dvf31 purchased in july 1999 was still generally working well in terms of recording and playing, but the button controlling the play versus record, full auto versus manual, broke off. The power switch also seemed to be deteriorating. It became increasingly difficult to turn the camcorder on and off, to switch between play and record, and repairing the machine was exorbitantly expensive. I decided to invest in this camcorder because i wanted a basic device that uses mini-dv cassettes. I am very pleased with this machine. It is very small (much smaller than my old jvc) and takes excellent videos. Some people do not like the joystick control, but i personally find it easy and fun to use. The display is smaller than my old jvc, but still perfectly satisfactory.
    1. Grandpa friendly easy to use menu. Once you have it set up the way you like, “forget about it”. Just hit the red button to record (and remember to hit it again to stop recording). “great shot of the sidewalk, grandpa”. Indoor and out good picture quality. Even with one 60w bulb in the room, a little dark but still good enough for me. I like the wide screen although not hd. The only thing i don’t like is the zoom button. It is mounted sideways instead of front to back. And then it is still backwards because you have to “pull” the switch toward you to “push” in and “push” the switch out to “pull” back. I’ll get better with practice on that. My favorite grandpa friendly feature is that it hardly shows any shaking.
      1. Economic and with enough features. I bought this camcorder at newegg (for 109 refurbished, really cheap right?. Haha) well, this little camcorder is small and light. A few years ago one this small was several hundred dollars. This one fits in the palm of your hand, and the quality of video is great. You can learn how to use the manual settings and make the video look professional or just use the “auto” and let it do everything for you, except the zooming. It will adjust automatically anyway to a decent setting. There’s other settings that i haven’t used such as macro (for closeups), 600x zoom (i only use the 30x optical zoom). The focus is automatic, or you can manually adjust it.
  5. I bought this refurbished camcorder only to play back older minidv tapes of our children, so i cannot comment on the recording video quality. The playback is fine on this machine and i hope to copy all the minidv tapes to our computer soon with it. I bought it solely because one cannot buy just a minidv player at this price point.

    Although lightweight and handy this camera isn’t that good. No night vision or light, very sensitive to humidity and won’t turn on. I would recommend to spend a little more on something better.

    The picture quality is second to none. I love that the camera is compact and that i can point and shoot. I also like the fact that if i am holding the camera and videoing, the picture is really steady. The only thing i would like to see if the ability to plug into my computer and download.

    Very nice product indeed, no complaints at all except for some “minor details” i’m about to point. First, video quality is average, don’t even think to ask for hd-like video because it ain’t happening, but it’s okay, if i wanted an hd camcorder i would’ve bought one. Second, there is no hot-shoe to attach lightning devices on it, it’s amazing the lack of such essential issue in a camera that has no lights, so in my particular case i had to buy an adapter which attaches on the tripod mount. Terrible design flaw there, what where jvc’s engineers thinking of????. Third, ah my dear jvc friends, a firewire cable would be a very nice touch from you, and the cost of such device is ridiculous so you can’t argue “cost reductions for competitive sell prices”. But nope, no firewire cable included. Despite all of the above i’m quite satisfied with the product. And last but no least, amazon’s service: flawless, as usual.

    A great camera for the money. It does what you might expect from a more expensive model.
