Released January, 2007
The Pros:Zoom range is very good, can catch distant subjects. LCD is large and clear, easy to view. Works with standard DVD recording media, cheap and easy to acquire.
The Cons:Still images are low resolution and have a lot of noise. Top resolution still doesn't achieve 720p high definition.
