Superbuy!!

 

I just recently purchased this camera, and I was really surprised at how easy it is to use, all the functions are very easy to learn. I purchased a new returned unit at Best Buy for 399.00 and bought a four year service agreement for 99.00 so I...

JVC Digital Video Camera (GR-DVL510U)

 

Why did I buy this JVC Camcorder? Well, because of all the great reviews I read. The first review that got my attention on JVC Digital Video Cameras was from TechTV (on the DVL505 model). With all the positive remarks about the JVC Digital Video...

Excellent quality video/sound, added bonus of a digital still camera

GR-DVL510

 

This is a great buy for the novice or experienced video enthusiast. I had last years model 310 and stepped up to the 510 this year. JVC made some improvements but they also cut some features apparently to save cost. The good things: The video camera...

Best of Both Worlds - Camcorder and Digital Camera

 

My wife wanted a digital camera. I wanted a camcorder. With the JVC GR-DVL510U we have the best of both worlds. Images are crystal clear as a camcorder and very good as a digital camera. Snapshot mode allows for still pictures or you can pull still...

Easy to use. Comes with software to edit video and capture stills. Small & lightweight

Cannot find third party battery that is compatible. JVC batteries are expensive
