Not impressed...


I purchased this camcorder after "researching" as best I could various brands (Sony, JVC, Canon, etc) and formats (DVD, MiniDV, Hi8, Digital8, etc.). I settled on this because according to JVC's website the features/specs were pretty much equal to a ...

Price, pass through from analog to digital

Quality, cheap plastic housing, still images unusable, not reliable after normal use

Good Family Camera

Small, uncomplicated, good quality, versatile

video stills are lowest quality

Unusable, even after $200 repair


The camera has only worked properly for a few (less than 15) hours of the time we've owned it. After just a bit of normal use, it started to insert significant "digital noise" into the recording, the viewfinder blanks out entirely, it won't focus .... ...

Nice size, weight

Riddled with digital noise / pixel distortion problems, rendering camera unusable

After several weeks of research and reading dozens of online reviews on several cams, I decided to get the JVC GR D200. I am very satisfied with my purchase. This cam delivers crystal clear video and audio. Even at low light, the video is better than...

Crystal clear video and audio. Quality of stills. So many features. Easy to use.

Can not connect external mic or video light, however I could live without them.
