Summary: Everything was packed and shipped with such care for the camera and it.was perfect for me. i had the old camera and charger but the camera would not work. this new one plugged right in and helped me finish all my video's. thank you.
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.
Summary: bought the jvc grd70 it worked for a couple months then started getting condensation operation paused message its a great camera if you don't want evidence of your kids birthday parties or sporting event missed out on a lot of memories because of this junk camera
Cheap camera, but not good for long term. Save your money for a better one

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.
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!
Summary: Don't waste your time on this junk. Mine blew up just out of warranty with a tape loading problem. Repairing is almost as expensive as purchasing a new model. I've checked other JVC problems on the net; broken CCDs, reset problems, etc. Stay away from JVC; I wish I did.
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.
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!
Summary: This camera is a piece of Junk. Battery was gone after 60 days. Spent 8 months trying to locate a battery. Now unit stays in unusable "Unit in Safeguard Mode". If anyone out there has an answer for this problem, please let me know. email@example.com
