Junk? I'm curious why you'd say that. I've been required to use two different small JVC HD cameras for other producers, and though I didn't want to go out and buy one for myself, they had their good points, including light weight & good picture. Definitely not junk. The only problems I had was with a blown fuse (from using an on-camera light), and perhaps too-light weight.
But I'd like to hear what you experienced, in case I get a gig on those cameras again.
