Despite its relatively low price and big optical zoom range, the JVC GR-D370 does little else to distinguish itself in budget class.

Relatively inexpensive ; Powerful 32X zoom in a fairly compact package

Wide-screen video appears distorted on the display ; Viewfinder must be extended to be activated

The JVC GR-D370US faces a variety of competition from budget camcorders of the same price such as the Sony Handycam DCR-HC26. We'd like to say it that rises above the fray to make it the value proposition it's supposed to be, but unfortunately, there's...

Great for the Price


I have had it for about 3 years and I only had one problem with it. It just needed it's heads cleaned. I got it when it was [$]. So now it's even a better deal.

There are some problems that usually occures in another camcorder like noises, frame breaks, etc. But in this kind of unique camera, you won't found it! So, wit the price, i guess it's suitable with the benefits u get!

The powerfull optical zoom is 'REALLY-REALLY' powerful! Even in environment with darker condition, it still works so much well.

Maybe the price....In my country I bought it for Rp.3.500.000, and its..yeaah..., a quite expensive.

This camera is useless indoors


We were set on purchasing a more expensive camera. We were convinced by several sales people that this modestly priced camera would more than fit our needs. Unfortunately, they were wrong. We use this video camera extensively inside for making family...

Economically priced, small in size, easy to use

terrible picture indoors
