JVC GR-DX77

 

Enjoying pride of place as one of the smallest JVC camcorders this season, the DX-77 is a great little device to flip out of our coat pockets for those moments when we go out and paint the town red.

Small form factor ; Built-in video light ; IEEE1394 port

No accessory shoe slot ; Bottom tape loading ; Awkward LCD screen

JVC GR-DX77

 

Selecting a winner from the 11 cameras in the lab was not an easy task. While there was a $1300 variation between the cheapest and the dearest, the difference in quality and features was not as obvious. For example the Samsung D701i, which was the...

Died after little use

 

RUN from this piece of trash.

I bought this camcorder because I like mini dv. It is lightweight and easy to use. It worked well for the first 2 tapes I recorded

On my trip to Spain this summer, it started off well, but then began recording digital fuzz on the left side of the screen. 1/4 of the tape was recording random pixels, with no sound. To top it off, it won't import into iMovie

Lightweight, Easy to Use, Compact

Weak Zoom, Short Battery Life

JVC GRDX77 MiniDV Digital Camcorder

 

I found the camcorder very compact and was actually surprised to see the size. The viewfinder is too good with the clarity of the picture and also the ease of operating the camcorder. I did not had any difficulty in getting to know how to use the...

Too Compact and easy to use, actually i did not use the manual when i started to use first. The battery has long life once charged which is an essential feature of any electronic gadget.

It might take time to know how to hold the camcorder in a correct position because of its compactness. Also you should also wait for the cassette and the memory card.

Product Specifications

The Celebrity Series is a new generation of JVC pocket-size camcorders featuring chic, jewel-like styling in a size that will handily fit into a purse or pocket. The GR-DX77US camcorder features a new super bright all-glass aspherical f1.2 lens - 2.3 times the brightness of an f1.8 lens - all in a design compact enough to allow these models to be nearly 15 percent smaller than the models they replace. Other features include USB connectivity, Video CD creation, e-mail video clips, HG digital stills with two image size settings (1024 x 768/640 x 480 pixels), NightAlive, DVD Navigation, analog input, and a SD/MMC card slot.
