JVC GR-D850

No viewfinder ; VGA-quality still photos

With excellent ergonomics and endurance, and better video quality than more-expensive competitors, the JVC GR-D850 is a bargain at $229. While it may be a little bit bulkier, you—as well as everyone you show your vacation videos to—will appreciate the...

Bad

 

Camera developed a fault (locking/freezing up)after 5 tapes usage. My niece bought the same model 1 month after me, now the same identical fault has developed with her Camcorder. Would never buy JVC product again.

Easy controls

Performance after 5 tapes used.

JVC GR-D850 Handy Camera

 

I suggest you to use JVC GR-D850. As of now I am very happy that I can have this handy camera. This mini handy camera is very handy. The size is not that big at all but you can still use it to zoom very clear since it has 35x Optical Zoom. Amazing!....

Easy to use, good quality of pictures and sounds
