JVC Does Not Stand Behind Their Products - JVC Lemoncorder

Gunnar Kossatz "Samvado", Amazon
15 August 2006
  • Summary: I agree with the many other users who have experienced the "Condensation, Operation Paused" defect on their JVC GR-XXX. Despite numerous others reporting this problem, JVC says its not a recognized problem. I would disagree - it is a recognized problem, but its your problem, not theirs.

Jvc Gz MG20 Camcorder Review

James, Unbeatable
20 December 2005
  • Excerpt: Having paid for an incredible Honeymoon, an extra £380 at the airport for a hard drive camcorder seemed a small cost to capture all our memories. Overall, we are very happy with the camera, not that it doesn''''''''''''''''t have certain faults. But HDD camera are new. If you want one right now, this camera is great, If you can wait until there is a bit of competition and the camera start to see more features, then wait.
  • Pros: Not only do you not have the expense of buying tapes and the hassel of storing them, but you can record at any time knowing that you won''''t lose previously recorded footage, you have immediate access to everything you have recorded so far. Every start and stop in record mode is a new file and the camera uses a menu system that shows you the first frame of each file. This is great for reviewing bits of our holiday but even better for freinds and family who, with the ...
  • Cons: So onto the gripes and there are two important ones. The first is the lack of an image stabilizer. Despite this being common on cheaper tape units, it is noticable absent here. The result is visable shaking on normal shooting, but when you start using the 25x zoom - forget it, the chance of your taget staying in the viewfinder is little to none. A tripod is essential. The second is the poor quality still camera. I know this is designed as a camcorder, but come on JVC,...

  • Summary: La compré para el bautizo de mi 3º hijo; por el poco tiempo, me confié en lo bonito que era el manejo y las imágenes. Tardé 5 meses en empezar a instalarla en el pc. EL PROGRAMA NO RECONOCE A LA CÃ�MARA. Tengo que bajar las películas manualmente, se atora el usb, y las bajo de 3 en 3; tenía 2 h grabadas a máxima definición, y al 3º día bajando, por error se quedó 30 minutos conectada sin bajar nada, se ha recalentado, y se ha quedado apagada.

  • Summary: Valla fraude, la camara jvc everio de 20G, con tres años justos se le rompe el disco duro, sin contar los problemas de ediccion. En el servicio tecnico me piden 335€ por la reparacion y abonando 100€ por adelantado porque dicen que hay gente que despues de ordenar la reparacion no la recojen? me costó nueva la nada deaspreciable cantidad de 799€. Por menos de lo que piden por el disco duro hay camaras iguales.

  • Summary: la compre despues de ver las maravillosas caracteristicas en la pagina de jvc. ¡esto es un autentico faude! la resolucion de la imagen es mas que pesima y eso que grabe en calidad Fine que es lo maximo que da la camara, los balances de blanco en automatico son desastrosos, hasta el video del telefono movil n95 es superior a este engendro me parece mentira que una marca de prestigio como es jvc nos quieran dar Gato por Liebre.
