JVC Everio GZ-HD5
Released April, 2008
The Pros:Fits perfectly in your hand, well balanced and feels just right while you record. Controls are easy to work out, no real learning curve. Good light gathering, gets a sharp and clear HD image that looks great on an HDTV.
The Cons:Image stabilization is poor at extended zoom ranges. Uses a proprietary file type which isn't compatible with a lot of software.
