JVC Digital Camcorder


I bought this camcorder about 6 months ago at a circuit city in washington dc for about $1000. It was a little pricey, but at the time it was top of the line. The battery life is less than good, rewinding or forwarding wares down the battery life...

Nice small package, with a LCD and remote.

Very short battery life, hard to learn to use at first

Excellent Value!


I purchased a GR-DVM75 in December and took it to Hawaii for our vacation. I was very pleased with the performance and features of the camera and really had no complaints. I originally did some extensive research on the ?vertical palm size? mini-DV...

Excellent image quality, above average low light shooting, great value for money

Low battery life, poor viewfinder resolution, inadequate stills
