    Pros: Easy to manipulate, hold, and good quality video.
    Cons: Hand strap really leaves something to be desired. MUCH too small. Lens cover useless!

    Pros: Low price, easy to use.
    Cons: No information on DV import into computer with Firewire.

    Summary: I'm a very experienced computer user and A/V hobbyist, but new to digital camcorders. The JVC GR-D290 was my first DV camcorder, and I was completely lost while trying to import video using the Firewire/1394 connection. I bought a FireWire card for my ... read more
