JVC GR-SXM260US S-VHS-C Camcorder

 

I had a similar one that recently broke that I purchase 7 years ago. I appreciate the new size and swivel view. Also because I use for my children (who get shy at times) the zoom comes in handy.

Small Compact, Great Zoom, Price!!!!

Storage of video, however the price, size and zoom make up for it.
