Reviews and Problems with JVC GR-X5US

A disappointment. Don't be fooled by the 5MP claim. The lense is quite inferior.

  • Summary: this is a very compact camcorder. However, the 5MP 3-CCD is useless if the lense is inferior. That's what happens to this JVC miniDV. The lense is not from any lense specialist, it's made by JVC itself. You have to look at the camcorder lense carefully to see "JVC video lense". The vidoe quality therefore is limited. There are tiny dots when you play it back on TV.

Good 10 Years Ago

  • Summary: I got one of these 10 years ago, as my first digital video camera. I used it on paid wedding gigs while I was in college, and found it to be quite nice in its day, particularly for outdoor shots. That said, the image quality is no where near as nice as the HD cameras they have today, nor does it have as many feature. The blocky design isn't the easiest to hold, and as another person noted, it doesn't have a spectacular lens.
