Summary: I love the camera but I can't get it to go into the menu mode to change settings. I thought it was new just out of the box and he hadn't used it. Maybe he didn't. I guess I can put it where he had it, in the drawer.
Summary: Overall great camera. I expected it to be an average consumer camera but, I was wrong. This camera exceeded my all my expectations for an inexpensive handheld. Color was a little washed out when we bought this, but a simple menu option changed that.
Summary: Beautiful picture quality, long battery life, but does not work, or is difficult, to transfer video from the camcorder to computers running windows vista. If thinking about purchasing this camera while operating windows vista, buy a different camera.
Summary: The item was purchased as a Christmas present and after talking to the person who received the gift they were very satisfied with the camera and its performance---would recommend this product.
Summary: This was a Christmas gift for my boyfriend! I was a little worried because it was not brand new but once he operated it I was pleased! The camera works great! The shipping was very timely!! I got it sooner than expected! It was a deal!!! I purchased the mini disk tapes and a case for it seperate. The camera itself is wonderful! I also got excellent customer serivce prior to purchase to answer my questions!
Summary: I purchased this camera in September and after we used it on our vacation to Mexico in November, I discovered it wasn't working properly. When I tried to replay the video, the sound is completely missing, not just on the camera but on the entire video!! AND the menu button is no longer working!!! I HATE this camera!!
JVC GR-D870 High-band Digital Video Camera (Refurb
21 September 2009
Summary: Have been using this camera for a while now, still have access to my old GR-DVL-300 cannot believe how things have changed here, I am very happy I kept with the mini-DV format and the memory card is a great addition. battery is terrific and resolution is great. I have no idea how to attach the neck strap and I miss the eye piece but it is so easy to use my 1 year old has taken some interesting movies.
Summary: I bought this camcorder, but returned it because it doesn't have a viewfinder! And I found there WERE situations where I felt I really needed the viewfinder (to save battery power or taking video in a darkened room of a program where I didn't want to disturb people behind me with the glow of the LED screen, etc.), and since this wouldn't even turn on without opening the LED screen, I decided to return it.
