Didn't Even Work

Jessica, Amazon
21 May 2013
  • 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. No image showed up on the screen, and even when I recorded it and tried playing back it was just black. I would suggest finding a more reliable seller because when I tried contacting him he just said all sales are final. pretty much S.O.L.

Very Happy with this product

mmbz67a, Ebay
26 April 2012
  • Summary: Awesome camera, Lot's of great built in features. USB connections with still pictures using a SD card. Mini-DV is light weight, Has night features. I was looking for used mini-dv camera to transfer old tapes to DVD's. I looked all around and found this on Ebay for a fraction of the price everyone else is asking for a Mini-DV recorder & player. When this camcorder arrived I spent a lot of time checking out all the features and I'm really happy with this unit.

disapointment

alemino00, Ebay
16 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought me from you or you company to Jvc gr d7ou and found out they do not have a batter charger and a battery. As a matter of fact I bought two battery chargers. I can use it for the video camera do not work. And no use for the chargers and the battery. Do you have a solution so I can be one of your good custmers. I gave you good grade becouse the chargers and the battery are new, but the video cameras are not working at all. Best wishes to you and bad luck for me.

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

Steven Jacobson, Amazon
27 November 2007
  • 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. Also, it was terrible in low lighting situations. I would recommend saving your money for a better camera. In other words, the cost vs quality isn't worth it in the end.

Low quality, short lifespan

Ronald C. Knowles, Amazon
27 April 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!

JVC = Garbage

Ian Wallis, Amazon
14 April 2006
  • 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. By the way, JVC is terrible in low light compared to my 10 year old Sony 8mm.

Good Camcorder until "condensation" problem

Tom "Tom", Amazon
27 February 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. Now, it's hard to even use the camera, it works 1 out of every 25 times i turn it on.

JVC products have serious CCD sensor flaw

Macgyver, Amazon
18 October 2005
  • 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!
