JVC HD Everio GZ-E205

 

JVC's HD Everio GZ-E205 packs decent image quality into a budget body.

Decent image quality ; Keen price ; 40x optical zoom

Limited manual features ; Most settings only available in full menu

This camcorder is very user friendly. You can also take photos while recording. Very light and compact and the image and sound quality are great

The battery lasts about an hour if you use the camcorder on HD only, but you can buy
