An okay camera.

  • Summary: I bought this camera so I could transfer my old Mini DV tapes to my PC. For this, It worked perfectly. I bought it used and didn't plan to really record much with it. Its an okay camera if you're looking for an older Mini DV cam at a good price. I have recorded with it on more occasions than I thought I would when I bought it. There are definitely cameras with better quality out these days.

Not a bad camera for preserving your memories.

  • Summary: This Camcorder is really small for a MiniDV camera, The LCD screen is a good size, does not have a view finder. It is easy to use, Quality is good, it is a simple camera for simple projects or traveling. It is very easy to use and gives a fairly good picture. But like all small cameras, zooming out it gets shaky so try not to zoom too far. Overall its not bad to just preserving memories.

Nice looking, reliable and light basic DV camcorder

  • Summary: I'm a Canon Elura 65 owner who was spoiled by all the features and excellent optics that come with it. But as any Elura (60,65,70) owner will tell you, reliabilty did not come with the package and needs special care. I was looking for something a litle more sturdy, and I believe I found it in the JVC GR D850.

A great camcorder

foreilly1, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder to record videos for my series, The Amateur Telescope Maker's Workshop, which I post on YouTube. I have burnt out three other cameras making these videos. I am impressed with the quality of the camera and the conceptual ease of operation. Simply put, this is a good camera. The downside is the small size of the controls, which make it manually somewhat challenging to operate until you get accustomed to the camera.

  • Summary: For the price of this product it works very well. There is no view finder so that can be frustrating and the manual focus doesn't work very well but the picture quality is alright.

Died at the worst possible time

Overstock
8 December 2009
  • Summary: We're still not sure if this is a battery issue or an issue with the camera, but it only held a charge once. I charged the camera up the first time to interview my 95 year old great aunt at a family gathering. The second time we tried to use it AT THE BIRTH OF OUR SON, even after keeping it on the charger for a full 24 hours, it was DEAD.I'm still distraught over this horrible breach of trust.
