Summary: Bare in mind that this is not about this product, Manufacture only. I have had two different JVC Camcorders in the past. One a Mini DV camera that was plagued with problems. One the Image sensor died, under warranty luckily. They knew they had an issue with them.
Summary: At first I loved this mini HDV cam but, after it broke the first time it was the main button. Now the CCD is F-ed up. When I bought this unit I was offered the 5 year Mac cam warrinty. This is saving me the cost of a new one.
Summary: The JVC GRH-D1 was released two years ago as the world's first hi-def camcorder (at least the world's under-$5000 HD camcorder). It utilizes the new HDV format, developed by JVC and enhanced by Sony, JVC, Sharp and Canon.
Summary: I bought this camcorder on September 28, 2003 when it was still fairly new on the market and more expensive than it is now. By July 2004 both the LCD screen and the viewfinder just went black. No image but I was still able to record audio. I reported it to JVC.
Summary: I bought this camera from a private seller at a coffee shop in October of 2013 for $450. I thought I had a steal when in reality I had actually been robbed. This camera has great HD picture quality in widescreen format. Good luck extracting it to a computer though.
Summary: This is the first camcorder I have ever used that looks good on an HDTV. No... Let me correct that. It looks great!!! Have you ever wondered why a normal camcorder looks so bad on an HDTV? It's because an HDTV is very high resolution.
Summary: me he comprado esta de JVC, la GR HD1 para empezar a experimentar con el HD , solo he podido hacer "capturas" a mi PC en formato DV pues no he podido conseguir el Software, necesito hacer amigos a los que les guste JVC o que ya estén familiarizados con esta cámara,mi correo: firstname.lastname@example.org...
Pros: gran LCD - graba en DV, SD y HD en cassettes miniDV ,buenas prestaciones manuales y automáticas
Cons: el zoom hasta 40X es bueno, la óptica es pobre, necesitas ponerle un gran angular
