Summary: This item was not in working order. It appeared to be fine until you atempt to use it. It would power up but upon putting a tape in the camera would not function. It gave an error message and said to re-incert tape and every time you did it nothing would happen. Just continued to get the error message. Item can appear to be in working order but will not work when you try to use it....
Summary: I decided to buy this camera after researching which camera would be useful for doing YouTube videos. I spent $200 on a generic digital all-in-one camcorder but the quality wasn't very good. I heard that using the older model camcorder provided better quality videos minus the convenience of the various storage options such as SD cards. I now understand why the JVC GR-D33 got so many reviews when it came out in 2004.
Summary: I spent some time trying to find a Minidv camcorder under $400 that had great low light capabilities. I ended up with JVC's GR-D33, and here's what I found after shooting some test footage and making a DVD: The picture quality of footage shot outside was outstanding and never looked digital. The low light capabilities are in fact impressive. Footage shot in my basement (less light than a "low light situation") was clear and wasn't too pixilated.
Summary: I bought this as an upgrade from my VHS-C camcorder. I tested it against my roommates' Canon ZR80 and Panasonic GS9. The video quality in low-light situations was suprisingly good, given what I had heard about most digital camcorders' abilities. The video quality in outdoor situations was even better. It's not up to spec with a Sony, but it's way cheaper, and it outdoes the more expensive Canon ZR. The GS9 was about the same in quality.
Summary: Un buongiorno a tutti gli amici di ciao, nel periodo natalizio di un paio di anni fà ho regalato a mio fratello una videocamera della JVC, una marca che ho avuto modo di provare con vari prodotti e con cui mi ci sono trovato sempre a meraviglia. Siccome in quel periodo mio fratello mi ha aiutato in diversi lavori di casa ho voluto sdebitarmi con questo regalo, sapendo che lui è un appassionato. Il nome preciso di questa videocamera è JVC GR-D33.
Conclusion: Recomendable para quienes recien comienzan.
Pros: Muy buena video cámara, facil de usar y con buen nivel de filmación.
Cons: Parece que salieron con un problema de fábrica en un chip que, mas tarde o mas temprano, trae problemas en el uso de la video. Por suerte el cambio de chip no es caro y con su reemplazo todo vuelve a la normalidad.
