JVC Everio GZ-MG365
Released January, 2008
The Pros:Very compact form factor, easy to transport. Requires very little initial setup, just charge and use. High degree of optical zoom for this price.
The Cons:Still shots tend to be blurry unless the camera is kept perfectly still. Expensive considering it does not record in HD. Battery life is shorter than competitors at this price point.
