Easy to use, handy little camcorder

AdvantagesSmall build, comfortable to hold, great picture quality in normal daylight.

DisadvantagesBad picture quality in low lighting situations, tape-loading can be tricky if using a tripod.

"I bought this camcorder 7 months ago and have now got several tapes full of memories. Lightweight and designed to sit comfortably in your hand, this camcorder seems to be well built and is perfect for carrying with you on holidays and family days out. Mine has sustained a few knocks and bumps as all do - but I was surprised to find that the silver-grey paintwork did not scratch or chip. Even so, I would still recommend using a padded case when ..." Read review

Quality comes without a price

AdvantagesCheap, Good Quality, Easy to use

DisadvantagesShort Battery Life

"...consumed. With new batteries from JVC starting at £50 for the exact same on found in the box. I'm determined not to require one. It's no use buying a cheap one off Ebay or somewhere. They are NOT PAL resolution and most likely your phone could capture better video. This is the real deal like all the high-end videos but comes with minimal extras and is ideal for the average user. The controls are straight forward as always with zoom on top, on ..." Read review

same camcorder diffrent name? GR-D247

Advantageslight, easy to use and cheap

Disadvantagesthe little blue saftey button and the flimsey cover

"Now we had been looking for a light and easy to use camera that we would be able to take with us on holidays we looked on here to find reviews and saw the GR-D240 but could only find the GR-D247 which seems to be the same as the GR-D240. The advantages that I can see are: •It's a lot smaller than anticipated which is great its about the size of your palm (6.4 x 8.4 x 14.6 cm), •Its very light (half a kilo all in), for something so ..."

An overview, with a money saving warning!!!

AdvantagesRock bottom price, but packed with well proven technology.

DisadvantagesMay be overtaken by new technology - i.e. direct DVD recording, HD recording

"...1 hour. Instead of the JVC 5 hour battery (£95) I bought a generic on ebay for £21 and it gave me at least 5 hours - although it remains to be seen how many recharges it will take. As most of my footage was shot in conditions of around -10C, I needed to keep the battery warm. I found a good solution in one use hand warmers, designed for fishermen, at a cost of around £1 for 8 hours heat (again on ebay). The documentation that comes with the ..." Read review

Product Information for "JVC GR-D240" »

Manufacturer's product description

The GR-D240 compact MiniDV video camera offers innovative features, covering everyone's shooting needs, from beginners to the experienced users. With the GR-D cameras JVC introduces a 25x optical zoom and 800x digital zoom. These precision lenses offer new possibilities to users. Images can be enlarged up to 25 times without encountering jagged edges or other undesirable noise in the image. The picture can further be enlarged up to 800 times when the digital zoom is employed. These zoom lenses demonstrate JVC's commitment to push existing technology to new levels. The GR-D240 is provided with the Data Battery and Power-Linked Operation functions. The user can check the remaining battery and recording time by simply touching a button, even with the power turned off. It is useful to check these before shooting to prevent the battery from dying during a shoot. With the popular and convenient Power-Linked Operation, the camera automatically turns on when the LCD monitor is opened or the viewfinder is pulled out so users can start shooting immediately, and automatically turns off when the LCD is closed or viewfinder is pushed back in to save battery drain. JVC's Super High-Band Processor expands the camera signal's frequency range to raise horizontal resolution to 520 lines or more, thereby taking full advantage of the DV format's original high resolution. JVC's 3D NR (3-Dimension Noise Reduction) compares field A to field A, and field B to field B across two frames so that the scanning lines are identical and noise can be reduced more accurately. As a result, the signal-to-noise ratio is improved by 2 dB and noise is reduced by about 30%. So, flicker is eliminated and color reproduction is improved, enhancing overall picture quality. In addition, the Digital Color NightScope and Auto Illumi. Light (Auto Illumination Light) functions have the ability to shoot in extremely low light situations. Digital Color NightScope boosts picture brightness using slow-shutter and digital signal processing, with full color reproduction and no distance limitation like infrared-based systems. The Auto Illumi. Light brightens up the subject, providing a brilliant full-color picture using energy-efficient LEDs to reduce battery drain. Since this light automatically turns off in bright environments, battery power won't be needlessly wasted. The GR-D camcorders feature a 2.5" Clear LCD Monitor which provides bright and vivid images with reduced surface reflection and glare when shooting outdoors, so users enjoy shooting under the sun without the washed out image common with conventional LCDs. It's also possible to view through the viewfinder and LCD monitor simultaneously, especially convenient in situations where you want to share the view with other people. The GR-D240 provides customers looking for their first video camera, or people wishing to replace their old analogue camcorder, many convincing reasons to choose JVC MiniDV. The high fundamental image quality as well as unique features and various interfaces make a great base for image capture and editing on a personal computer, and are sure to be a favorite with the digital generation.
