I thought I'd share my problems with my JVC GR-DX67 in the hope it will help inform others about which camcorder to buy. I've owned the camera since about May last year and have only used it 5 or 6 times, less than 3 hours record and 10 hours playback. The first problem I encountered is that the zoom would stick on, especially after charging. To get it off you had to wobble the zoom rocker until it stopped. This got to the point where it took some 15 or 20 minutes for it to stop. Anyway I then take the thing on holiday, use it very little (due to the problems) but when I get back to review the recording I had done I switch on to get a balck screen telling me the lens cap is still on when its not. Searching here and other places shows this is a well known problem on JVC camcorders and one that can only be fixed by an engineer. To make matters worse I (against my better judgement) bought it from Dixons who either want £105 just to look at it and then its plus parts or £159 and they'll fix it whatever the problem. Luckily it started playing up, and finished, whilst being used for work so they will hopefully pay. I just wanted to let everybody know that JVC camcorders do not have a good relaibility record as searching the web and my experience has shown me.
