Excerpt: I purchased this digital video camera for Christmas 2004 for my husband.It came in at £249 . He wanted something easy to use, lightweight and with good quality recording. He had only previously used one of the old, huge , non-digital recorders. It needed to be reasonably priced so that it was not a disaster if damaged beyond repair , and so he could take it on holiday without worrying too much .
Pros: Lightweight ,good clarity of pictures and sound,easy to use , well known make
Excerpt: I echo the previous comments about this easy to use, basic camera that still has plenty of functions. I should warn prospective buyers that there's 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.
Excerpt: 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.
Pros: clear picture, good amount of functions, good features
Cons: low battery time, breaks and over heats, dirt gets under the screen
