The JVC GR-D93 is the most expensive of the three GR-series camcorders at $699.99, but it's still a good deal for the level of performance and functionality it offers. The JVC GR-D33 and JVC GR-D72 share similar 1/6-inch 680K CCDs, but the D93 steps it...

Avoid JVC camcorders!

 

I recently bought a JVC mini camcorder that broke after limited use. So I went to one of their factory authorized repair places only to find that JVC will not allow anyone to repair my model but themselves. (God only knows if your model falls into this...

$250 less and Better than the Sony

 

I have spent over 2 weeks and MANY hours researching cameras. Just returned the Sony HC40 ($650 @ BestBuy) for the JVC. Low light performance was key for us and much of our shooting is indoors with our new baby. Sony's looked like it was B&W and very ...
