Initial Quality is Great but a Very Fragile Camera - Not Recommended

Summary: I bought this camera in 2001 when the fetures available in this model was fairly high-end among consumer models. The picture and sound quality was great and to my opinion better than comparably priced Sony models. I used the camera very lightly, only in special events and maintained it nicely, taking good care. However, after 4 years it started malfunctioning.
Summary: To be honest, I had set my expectations a bit too high and was somewhat disappointed by the image quality. For instance, I had my eye on a digital camera (for stills) as well as a camcorder. So I thought I'd combine the two in a single purchase. Well, guess what! This little baby offers less than 1 megapixel (Mp), while the cheapest digital camera offers at least 1.3 Mp, with many models offering 3.3 and I've even seen ads offering 5 Mp.
Summary: The JVC GR-DVL915U is a three-way delight. First, it is a top of the line MiniDV format camcorder with nearly every feature you could want or need. I'll mention just two of the many features that stand out. Electronic stablization works as well as those on pro-model cameras. Also, what JVC calls "Night Alive" is a surprise: full color video in next-to-no-light settings. Most other camcorders can't match this ability.
Excerpt: Bella videocamera reglatami per il mio compleanno, dotato di un sacco di connettività, tra cui FireWire e USB, che quindi sostituiscono gli ormai antiquati collegamenti analogici che comunque sono ancora presenti nelle conesioni S-video e composito. Questa videocamera è molto buona, il mirino è CCD interlacciato da 680.000 pixel, offre un'immagine nitida e dei colori sufficientemente brillanti e realistici.
Cons: stabilizzatore immagini poco efficace, modalità notturna lenta
