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

    Summary: Replaced another JVC mini DV camcorder with this one. The other one was more expensive and more complicated with tiny buttons and things that anyone over 30 would have difficulty seeing no less someone with fingers larger than a child's could operate. ... read more

    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
