JVC products have serious CCD sensor flaw

Macgyver, Amazon
8 November 2006
  • Summary: I owned a JVC GR-D33US camcorder for a little over a year and the CCD sensor just went out on it and it gives a "lens cap" error message even with lens cap OFF. Not a good product if it only lasts for a little over a year!

Low quality, short lifespan

Ronald C. Knowles, Amazon
4 October 2006
  • Summary: Low light image is sub standard, but what can you expect for the price. Sadly the CCD blew up 30 days after 1 year warranty expired. It will be cheaper to replace than fix. I'm not buying another JVC to be sure!

Not bad

Amazon
3 October 2006
  • Summary: JVC recommends using a 64mb SD or MMC memory card for this camcorder. Please note that a 64mb card with this camcorder will give you a little over 200 pics. JVC stated that any SD or MMC card that was bigger than 64mb may cause distortion and is not recommended.

Loren, Amazon
3 September 2006
  • Summary: I purchased this model in the June of 2003 and by May 2004 it is in Safeguard mode. I was extremely careful with it and used it a moderate amount. After researching in google a bit, I found hundreds of others complaining about the same problem not only for this camera but for other JVC models - some...

SD card issue

Amazon
2 September 2006
  • Summary: I am happy with the camera but my experience was different from "An Electronics Fan" from Bend, Oregon. I tried to use the camera with a SanDisk 128mb SD card. I the resulting image looked like video noise. I thought the camera was defective, but a replacement unit showed the same result.

Didn't Even Work

Jessica, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this item for a simple shoot that required a miniDV camcorder. I emailed the seller about the product first and he assured me that everything was in working order, and when I received the camera it was broken.

Cheap camera, but not good for long term. Save your money for a better one

Steven Jacobson, Amazon
19 August 2006
  • Summary: I got mine on sale for really cheap a few years ago, about $250. At the time, it was a steal for a mini dv camera. After about a year, it had a problem loading/ejecting the tape. Then it completely stopped working. It is frustrating to buy something that breaks.

Good Camcorder until "condensation" problem

Tom, Amazon
19 July 2006
  • Summary: I have had this camera for about 2 years. Worked great until about 6 months ago. When i would turn the camera on I would get a message that said "STOP CONDENSATION" it would last for a little while then the camera would work OK. As time went on, the message appeared more often and lasted longer.
