JVC SXM740u Camcorder

cvol3521, Ebay
6 September 2008
  • Summary: We utilize 14 of these type of Camcorders for Day and Night research. We have found them to easy to use, and daytime clarity is Excellent. The ambient light feature allows us to use them in darkness to photograph anything that generates light....and they have captured several interesting images. If one is looking for an inexpensive alternative to Videotape...then this could be your answer. Tapes are plentiful, and replacement batteries are readily available.

Purchase of JVC GR SXM740U Camcorder

705076942@deleted, Ebay
3 June 2008
  • Summary: I won the bid on the camera after several failed attempts at other models. It was actually my first purchase on ebay. I purchased it to replace a similar model that I had owned previously, but lost in an offshore fishing trip. I have used it a couple of times already, and it performed favorably. It has a few features my old camcorder did not have, and I haven't had the time or need to use them yet. But, overall I have been pleased with the purchase.

Good Camcorder Good Sound

Mike, Amazon
26 December 2002
  • Summary: The sound on this camcorder is good. My 12 year old son was able to make a very understandable commentary on his video shoot. The video is very good, even on standard "SP" mode-not S-VHS. I was able to use zoom to follow a cat outdoors at 30+ feet and on playback on a 48" RPTV I could see each of his whiskers very clearly. The controls are not in the most ideal position. The camera has good balance.

JVC sounds Bad

Mike, Amazon
8 April 2002
  • Summary: I recently purchased the Jvc GR-SXM740U Camcorder and took it on a trip. The picture quality was super. However I was very dissatisfied when I returned home and started to view the movies I had taken. The sound was awful. I filmed some of our movies outdoors and you sort of expect the outdoor sound quality to be less the perfect. But when I watched the indoor movies I could not believe it. Four people in one room and at times three of us could not be heard.

Discreta, ma datata

epy, Ciao

  • Summary: JVC GR-SXM740 è il nome di una videocamera che è stata un buon modello per alcuni anni, prima che venisse surclassata da prodotti con tecnologia decisamente più competitiva. Sto parlando infatti di una videocamera che ha uno zoom ottico 16 x e digitale di 600 x, due valori entrambi ormai sorpassati. Il prodotto in questione ha anche uno schermo da 3 pollici e mezzo, ad alta risoluzione da un lato, ma anche per quelli che erano i tempi.
  • Pros: qualità video e di registrazione, design, praticità d'uso
  • Cons: qualità audio, rapporto qualità/prezzo, prodotto superato
