Excellent camera for a low price!

664756621f1eebdfc342e91c58452bb662682961, Ebay
27 July 2007
  • Summary: This JVC camcorder packs a pretty solid bang for the buck. The 520 lines of resolution give you a very nice, clear picture, even without going to the extent of buying an HD camcorder. Colors are very well represented, and the sound is of decent quality as well. (Can get a bit rough in windy situations though.) Aside from the clear picture, the camera is easy to use.

Excellent Powerful Mini DV Player

paciolin, Ebay
7 July 2006
  • Summary: This Mini DV has excellent sound and picture quality. If you need a mini DV this one does not have all the features of some cameras but all those features should be included in your video editing software. I mean isn't that why you buy a mini DV? So you can put it on your PC and edit it there then put it on a DVD!

Caution - try the camera out in a shop

Amazon
6 April 2004
  • Summary: I would highly recommend playing around with this camera in a shop before ordering online. ...but when I received it, I found a lot of defects that finally made me return the camera for a refund. It started with the weird design of the On/Off buttons. It was so tight that I broke my nail trying to turn it around. I tried some recording with zooms, and the time taken for the camera to focus sharp on a zoomed object was slow enough to blur the zoomed object.

Not Impressed

  • Summary: I just returned this camcorder this afternoon to Circuit City. The picture quality indoors was a major, major disappointment! Under normal lighting conditions the picture was grainy at best. I used this camcorder for one week and in three different households all with the same dull, griany results. My old 8mm camcorder has a much crisper, brighter and cleaner picture!

Good camera for the money

bob, Amazon
2 April 2004
  • Summary: I reluctantly bought a display model of the GR-DVL120U about a year ago. I choose this model because of price, shape/size and the fact it was digital. Price was the biggest concern because the soul purpose was for shooting underwater video (if my housing flooded, I would be out less money). The camera is still going strong despite use in some rough environments.

Searching for another camera

bob, Amazon
28 March 2004
  • Summary: Its funny hearing all these reviews on this camera. The problem listed in earlier reviews about the camera having focusing problems. I too have had similar problems. It almost seems like the video feed stalls slightly when panning out, or tilting the camera to one side or downward. I received my first camera and right out of the box it was so bad it did not function. My replacement I have had for about 3 months, and now similar problems are arising.

GR-DVL120U camcorder has its ups and downs

sandysobel1 "sandysobel1", Amazon
24 March 2004
  • Summary: Overall this camcorder is very good. Pros- 1. Video Quality 2. Ease of use 3. Price Cons- 1. No USB capability 2. Video takes up much memory on computer. 3. Quality in low light. 4. Battery Life. If you plan on buying this camcorder, make sure you get a firewire card. Next, If you plan to to do a lot of shooting indoors or near a power supply the battery is fine. If you will be in the great outdoors, make sure you buy an extra or better batter.

Good value

C70 "C70", Amazon
21 March 2004
  • Summary: I would recommend this product for beginning/amateur video enthusiasts for the ease of use. Although because it is limited by its price range, some features are cut out or needed, which is obviously placed in JVC's higher models. I use it to edit simple home movies using the IEEE Firewire output to my PC and it runs great on most software.

Great camera for the price

Mindcrime, Amazon
17 March 2004
  • Summary: This is a great camera for the price. ...The camera is light, easy to use and has great picture quality. I would recommend this camera to anyone looking for a nice digial video camera. I have seen several reviews of the camera online and all say that this is a great camera for the money. There are better cameras out there but you are looking at spending several hundred more for one of those cameras.
