JVC Everio GZ-X900
Released September, 2009
The Pros:Video is high resolution and looks very sharp. Colors are well saturated and reasonably realistic. Turns on almost instantly, great for candid shooting.
The Cons:Optical zoom is fairly limited and doesn't make much difference. Low light performance is very grainy.

Included also is a 2.8” LCD panel and more importantly, an easy-to-use touch-sensitive slide bar that runs along the left edge of the flip-out — which means a user need not touch the LCD panel itself to operate the device. Additional notable aspects include 9MP still shots, the ability to upload video directly to one’s YouTube account, and fifteen scene modes. Some notable drawbacks include the lack of headphone and microphone jacks, the omission of 24p (film-like) and 30p (web-friendly) video recording modes, and a short battery life span.
