LENS CAP ERROR sadly commonplace.


I recommend NOT getting this JVC unit. Search on JVC and LENS CAP ERROR can enlighten you to a troublesome situation for those of us who have purchased this unit. No matter which camcorder you do purchase, be sure to put it ...

Seemed fine for the brief time it did work.

JVC GR-DX95 Mini DV Camcorder


ok, i use this camcorder not every day and i cannot compare against the latest, greatest products from other manufacturers ... but up to now it fits my needs.

Easy to handle, big display

couldn't see any up to now (well, to access the menus has been tricky for the first time, but once you "browsed" around, it's easy)

Pretty good DV camcorder for the price


We just got back from our honeymoon where we used the new camcorder we bought, the JVC GR-DX95. This review is mostly about the use of the camera, I will have to update the review later about its firewire capabilities, and video qualities. ...

Lightweight, small, great zoom, available accessories, build quality, battery time.

Hard to hold, zoom ring operation can be difficult, difficult menu and configuration options

JVC GR-DX95 Mini DV Camcorder


I ordered jvc GR DX75 orignally, but the seller sent to me this model. Same except LCD monitor size. Overall an excellent camcorder within 400~500 bucks. The newest models are coming out every second. I think that it is not necessary to buy...

Large LCD monitor(3"), Vertical type,simple operation, small and easy carring.

Poor still image, Don't expect for this model
