I took it back

A. Schrenk, Amazon
29 December 2004
  • Summary: I got this camcorder and took it back within a day. My first few videos were okay, but they were just me shooting things around my house. That night I took it to a party, and the video turned out awful. The problem was the autofocus.

USB Drivers Don't Work on XP, Win98, Win98SE

Earthdog, Amazon

  • Summary: Just purchased it 2 days ago. Shot some stills, took some video of my daughters softball game. Then tried to load the software and drivers. None of them work with USB 1 or 2. Tried installing them on serveral computers, from a Dell Demesion 4100 to a Compaq 2.8 Ghz Pentium 4.

Drivers won't work with Windows Moviemaker

William Hildebrandt, Amazon
2 September 2004
  • Summary: The camera works great as long as its not hooked up to your computer. I was able to use JVC's bundled software but its not as good as other software. Too bad. Back to Costco with this one.

Reasonably priced mini-DV camcorder

Amazon
2 September 2004
  • Summary: Unlike others, the JVC software loaded without a hitch, but as reported by others, it leaves alot to be desired. I am waiting on a new laptop to retest with FireWire and my copy of Magix Movie Edit Pro 2004.

Improved performance. Best I found for the price.

Amazon
2 September 2004
  • Summary: After researching online and trying out several brands and models, I chose the JVC GRD72. I purchased it at Costco for $400. Low light performance, the remote control, and analog input were the main reasons I purchased this camera and they all work very well.

A good camera

Charles R. Sawyer, Amazon
2 September 2004
  • Summary: The camera is a great little camera. I like it's simplesity and it's very easy to use. Now for the bad part, take the CD's that came with the camera and place them in the circular file (the can) they're worthless and invest in Pinnacle 9. You'll be more than pleased. The combination rocks.

Great Camera, poor audio recording

an avid reader, Amazon
2 September 2004
  • Summary: I just got my camera, put in a tape and as I started filming I imediately noticed that the gears that move the tape are very noisy. I hoped that the microphone wasnt picking up this noise, but when I played back the tape, the noise was very apparent.

For the price it's hard to beat

John E. Watson, Amazon
2 September 2004
  • Summary: Please go into this purchase knowing that you aren't going to get the quality of a $1,000 camera for $350 and I think you will be pleased. yes, some things are annoying like the LED lights being spotlight focused on a small area and the "night mode" slowing down the shutter so it is choppy.

What a disappointment!

Amazon
2 September 2004
  • Summary: Wow, after reading the previous reviews on this camera I thought it must be a pretty good deal. Boy was I wrong! I've had the camera about a week and think I may have made a bad choice in going back to JVC.

Cheapest place to buy it

M. Baker, Amazon
2 September 2004
  • Summary: Forget buying this camcorder at a retail store!! I originally bought the GDG33 version (the next version below this one) at Walmart. I returned it because I found this version (GRD72) at [...] for $75 cheaper!!!
