Summary: I can not record, play, or even take pictures! I cant return the product either because of the return policy. Very, very, very highly disappointed. Waste of a lot of money. I wont order anything again.
Summary: I am now on my second GRD90. The first one got dunked in saltwater during a parasail at Paihia, Bay of Islands, New Zealand. Managed to salvage the tape in it and had some spectacular shots. But, I digress, on with the review. The main problem is the condensation problem that locks up the camcorder.
Summary: I purchased my camera refurbished and already I cannot get a picture from any live source. I only get playback from tapes already recorded. I am not happy at all with this product or purchase.
Summary: i love the camera, i received it in a timely matter but there were a few things not received with the camera that were suppose to be, but the seller fixed the problems right away and were a great help.
Summary: 1) I agree with all the reviews on poor picture quality. 2) also agree with the reviews on JVC's poor quality. Lasted a year, to save one or two hundred dollars in this case you don't get what you pay for. I learned my lesson.
Summary: This thing won't hold a charge, and JVC won't ship a new battery. Same as other reviews - it's your problem not theirs. Never even got to a point where I could experience the condensation problem. I can tape with it plugged in to the wall, but that's it. Otherwise, it's an expensive door jamb.
Summary: I own a JVC Camcorder and will never buy another one. It is less than two years old and every couple of months something else goes wrong with it. Right now it has the condensation error, please wait message.
Summary: I bought this camera because it was cheaper than alot of the others and I thought JVC was a good name. WRONG! I rarely used it, the first few months. Since then, I have not been ABLE to use it! I get the error "PLEASE WAIT. CONDENSATION, OPERATION PAUSED." And I can't do a thing with it.
Summary: This camcorder is not the greatest I am just not thrilled with it as I though I would be, I paid a pretty good price for what I got. Some things that really annoy me about it is the time it takes to focus when you are zooming - sometimes I done missed what image I was trying to capture, pictures...
Summary: I've had this GR-D90U for under a year, and used it for about 5 hrs of total record time. My wife bought this as a Christmas present to tell me that she wanted to use it to record the birth of our first child.
