Mixed feelings about this 1998 digital camcorder

 

Although I bought this camera from eBay and did well on the purchase price, I was frustrated to find ...

Clarity of picture, sound, and movie-making features. Great price. LCD display is excellent.

Connection to a PC seems impossible.

Excellent if you don't need firewire

 

This is an excellent camcorder if you don't need firewire. Features abound and what it lacks in extremely low light capability it makes up for with very slow shutter speeds of 1/4 and 1/10 (tripod a must!). Like most camcorders, it's power hungry. A...

Macro, excellent night photography with street lamps and 1/4 shutter speed.

Not firewire capable, analog output.

Good Camera For home

 

After having this camera for a month and putting it through some tough and rugged testing, this camera is one tough cookie. The zoom (160x digital) is good, the fade\wipe selections are easy, although pushing the rear knob in can become annoying at...

Good Zoom, easily accessible output ports for VCR recording

No Firewire support for computer hookup, Battery life

CYBERCAM??

 

I bought this camera in a rush a few days before going on vacation. I knew that mini dv was the best camcorder medium and that JVC was a good brand name. The instruction manual is easy to follow and the camcorder is simple enough to use. It has very...

Product Specifications

The GR-DVF10 camcorder is just what you need! One of the model's standout features is its 16x optical zoom - that's a record in the DV camcorder world! Other nice pluses are the 2.5-inch swiveling LCD and built-in speaker, both of which allow convenient playback in the field. The GR-DVF10 also has a built-in light with an auto-on function for shooting in dim conditions. The GR-DVF10's serial-snapshot mode emulates the motor drive found on professional 35mm cameras, enabling you to take multiple shots in rapid succession. If you're using a VCR to copy your raw footage into some sort of order, the remote control included with the GR-DVF10 gives you access to some automatic editing functions to help streamline the process.
