I purchased the camera October of 2009 for $140 and it lasted me 10 before becoming unusable.  Several buttons on the camera completely stopped working, including the Record button.

This was a disappointing development, but I wasn't completely discourage knowing that the camera was... Read full review »

Cons Short Battery Life, Bad in Low Light
Recommended it? Yes

I wanted a movie camera with a decent zoom and at a decent price.  I tried another more expensive brand however ended up takng it back because of how poor the quality was when shooting indoors.  This JVC GR-DA30 Mini DV Camcorder isn't the greatest in low light but it is definitely one of...

I went from having one of those big, bulky cameras that you never wanted to bring to this and it is great! I can easily stick it in the bag and wrap it around my arm. Read full review »

Pros Lightweight, Easy to Use, Compact
Recommended it? Yes

This camera is perfect for home use. It is not professional quality, but it has worked out just fine for our home movies. The battery doesn't last quite as long as I would like, and the storage is a bit small, but otherwise I have no complaints, especially for the price. Read full review »

Pros Small, lightweight, easy to use, inexpensive
Cons Exposed LCD viewer, short battery life
Recommended it? Yes

I’d wanted a camcorder for a while, years in fact. However as a non-necessity that would cost at least $300 and likely more, a camcorder just never actually worked its way into my discretionary budget. With camcorder prices dropping rapidly I thought to myself recently that when prices dropped... Read full review »

Pros Light, inexpensive, easy to use, great battery life
Cons Volume/focus and record buttons are two close together for us fat fingered folks.
Recommended it? Yes

I bought this after having a horrible experience with a JVC Everio HDD camera. The mini DV tapes are way better to work with than the HDD. This camera is light, easy to use, and does everything I need it to do. The guy who rated this camera as a one star camera must be technologically inept,... Read full review »

I've been meaning to review my JVC GR-DA30 Mini DV Camcorder for quite some time now. I've had it about 4 months now, and I paid $199.99 for it at Best Buy, but when shopping around for prices on this particular camcorder, I found it was priced the same at Target as well. But, I went ahead and... Read full review »

Pros Small easy to carry and the price was great! Also, takes great videos.
Cons The buttons are very small and hard to read.
Recommended it? Yes

Great Camera, does a good job without spending a lot of money. We don't use it that often so we could not justify an expensive camcorder. This camera really produces surprisingly good videos. Read full review »
