Small, Good battery Life, Ease of use

GRDVL100

 

Ok, so mine isn't actually a 160, it's a 100 series, but on the basis that no-one else has reviewed any of the JVC mini DV camcorders yet, I thought I might as well share my views! I bought my DVL100 from Jessops 2 years ago - it was an ex-shop-display...

Excellent value, Easy to use, Light

Poor long zoom, Not wide-angle enough

Product Specifications

The GR-DVL160 combines an outstanding performance with a sleek, compact design. It features 1/4-inch 800, 000-pixel CCD and 520 lines of resolution with super high-band processor. This camera boasts 500x super digital zoom and a unique Digital Color NightScope. The Digital Image Stabilizer helps to eliminate camera shake and an Iris Lock function allows the iris to be locked so that after focusing on a close subject, even when the subject moves away, the image will not darken. Used when shooting a moving subject, when zooming, when the subject changes its distance (thus its size in the LCD monitor or the viewfinder), or when you want to lock the brightness level.
