I have been finding some interesting deals on HSN, QVC and ShopNBC. My latest acquisition is the JVC HD Everio GZ-E10. The deal was for $169.99 which seemed to be about 25% less than what the device is being sold elsewhere (of course the list price is so much higher).
Initially, I can say that for personal video recording it is more than adequate. One of the draws was the 40X optical zoom. In Part II, I’ll include video samples and links to raw footage.
For now, here are some starter images of the product:
