Consumer review by: dmitriy_bekkerman (

Good price/value and quite suitable for family shooting


I've received the camcorder directly from JVC as the replacement of my crappy GRSXM260US unit which kept malfunctioning on me.

simplicity/easy to use, build-in speaker, internal lighting function, color LCD monitor & viewfinder ; good price/value

short battery life ; viewfinder not adjustable

Product Specifications

The GR-SXM37 features a compact stylish design. The 25x's optical zoom, 2.5" LCD and built-in auto-light make this SVHS-C camcorder really stand out. The JVC GR-SXM37 boasts three recording modes: it uses Super VHS recording to deliver up to 60% better resolution than the JVC standard models for better quality home movies. For quality and economy, the Super VHS ET mode lets you take those high-resolution videos using any VHS-C tape. For compatibility with any VHS video recorder, standard VHS is also available. A 2.5" LCD view screen allows the camera to be operated from any angle, for maximum comfort. The picture stabilizer gets rid of annoying picture shake. The 1000X digital zoom makes sure you don't miss any of the action. A built-in light improves the picture in nighttime situations. When you are done recording, the tapes play back & and can be shared in any VHS video recorder using the provided VHS-C Playpak.
