A great camera till disaster struck Review with images

AdvantagesLightweight ,good clarity of pictures and sound,easy to use , well known make

DisadvantagesNot cheap

"...indicator remains contact your nearest JVC dealer . Now here's the rub , we returned to the dealer who was not helpful at all even though it is a specialist camera store. We had purchased from Jessop's , feeling there would be support here if needed . He did all the things we had tried with the camera to no avail . He said he could return it to JVC but they charged about £250 , as standard for any such returns. Obviously JVC don't want to encourage ..." Read review

JVC GR D23 Review with images

AdvantagesSmall and light

DisadvantagesBatteries tend to run down easily

"Well we finally took the plunge and bought a digital video camera. Bought this particular model in Fuerteventura on holiday. What research did we carry out before purchase? none How many other shops did we try? none What then did we base the decision to but this camera on? We tried a couple of cameras in the shop and this one felt better in the hand and the picture quality seemed a lot better in the LCD screen. Pros and cons Pros It ..." Read review

One great home camcorder!!!

AdvantagesEasy to use generally, Colour viewfinder, Surround Sound Recording

DisadvantagesNo remote, Some features hard to use

It has a colour viewfinder, too, ..." Read review

Advantagescheap, easy to use

Disadvantagescommon faults, no external mic

"...a common fault among many JVC cameras involving the CCD. this should be easily fixed under warranty. Here is the official repsonse from JVC. http://www.jvc.co.uk/knowledge-list.php?id=4#0 There is also no facility for an external mic so you often get hum from the tape. I have not yet edited yet, either on the camera or pc, this is something I'm planning to do in the near future so I'll keep you posted. I would also suggest a tripod for ..." Read review

why you should/ should not choose the cam corder

Advantagesclear picture, good amount of functions, good features

Disadvantageslow battery time, breaks and over heats, dirt gets under the screen

"the jvc GR-D93EK mini DV cam corder is useful for those qucik family videos you treasure and has a wide rage of features so no movie can be the same.but what it is good for it lacks in other areas for example the battery life is disapointinly low as the camera if used constantly will run out of energy in 45-120 minutes and the charger most often will heat up and may break altogether. this camera is a nifty thing for holidays but not for long term ..."
