Need some help Troubleshooting

jesse, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: I have had my GZ-MG330 for a few years (with minimal use) but recently a problem has come up. The LCD screen does not work anymore. While in "recording" or "still" picture mode the LCD screen goes black. At first i thought the screen went out, but i can still view past pictures, videos, change setting, etc.. But as soon as you push "record" the screen goes black. During playback, you can even hear the sound, just no picture! Anyone else have this issue?

  • Summary: Didn't realize that the camcorder wouldn't be coming with the battery, charger or any wire components. Literally all I got was the camera. Kinda bummed I now have to find all the other parts to even know if it works.

poor video compression - lots of artifacts

OneArmed, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this yesterday, and am returning it today. I needed a camcorder to record billiard and pool matches for practice and archiving. Now I wasn't looking for HD for broadcast, but it would have been nice to actually have some decent picture. On the viewscreen, the picture was fine, but I was dismayed when I got it home with 4 hours of footage on Ultra Fine. It uses MPEG2 in a .MOD format. Not very friendly to work with. I didn't even try the lower resolutions.

nice camera with problems

  • Summary: Overall this is a nice camera. The MOD file extension is a pain. Very few programs will work with this file name. That means you may have to convert the file unless you use software included. Also the hard drive is very motion sensitive. I also had to have this camera replaced. the first one I had failed after one use.

Picture Quality Horrible

B. Cook, Amazon
16 July 2008
  • Summary: Bought this to replace my trusty but dying Sony thinking the picture quality HAD to be better after six years. But sadly, no. My Sony TRV350 had much better picture quality especially in weird light situations (shadow/light, low light, etc.). Focus was horrible and stabilization non-existent. Colors not real or vivid. On the plus side it holds a huge amount of video, is extremely easy to transfer the video to a computer, is very small and thus portable and looks cool.

Mac OSX users beware!!

Mio, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera itself seems to run smoothly. However I am unable as yet to see how the video plays on my mac. When I came to download the recorded files to my mac, I discovered that the native JVC mod. format is not recognised or playable. It appears that in-order to play the recorded files, separate video converter software has to be purchase (approximately £30 -£40).

Nicht überzeugend

Amazon Customer, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: So, ich hatte das Vergnügen, ein Gerät von einem Bekannten geliehen zu bekommen. Ich wollte damit meinen Sohn filmen, wie er mit Profifußballern in das Stadion einlaufen darf. Warum muß man die Linse per Hand selbst aufmachen? Kann das nicht automatisch gehen, wenn man das Gerät anmacht und auf Aufnehmen drückt??? Das Zoomen gestaltet sich schon schwierig, da das Gerät meiner Meinung nach sehr lange braucht, um den Focus wieder richtig einzustellen.

Naja gerade so

Werner Wagner "JVCler", Amazon
20 June 2009
  • Summary: Der Camcorder macht mal gerade seine Arbeit. Meinen alte JVC Videobandkamera kann da gut mithalten. Fotos macht ein gewöhnliches Handy weitaus besser. Zum Hobbyfilmen ist die JVC gerade mal OK. Wer eine bessere Qualität wünscht muss auf einen etwas teureren HDD Camcorder mit HD-TV Technik sparen. Da ich den Camcorder in den 4 Wöchigen Urlaub mit nahm, kann ich ihn nicht mehr zurückgeben. Ich hätte es sofort getan.
