JVC GR-D295 First Impressions Review - JVC MiniDV Camcorders

This camera is great for the price and was really easy to use. Putting the video on my PC was also easy.

Pretty good so far...


I like the portability of the camera.

It's small and lightweight -- It's pretty intuitive for using the basic features (e.g. recording and playing back tapes, and snapping pics). -- 25x optical zoom -- Comes with 2 1 hour batteries

"low quality" pictures? - Advanced features not too intuitive - Lousy lens cover - I didn't see anywhere that the camera would come with 2 batteries

Excellent for the price!!!


I bought this camera checking and comparing it with many others.

A real 25X optical zoom, better than many others, good quality in low light. Camera is incredible small, size of a digital or film camera ; it is amazing how many things it can do, for it's size

Included batteries work only for about an hour. Digital pictures are poor, the software is useless. It doesn't have inputs for audiovideo, except firewire, but the cable is not included
