JVC GR-D340E

 

Excellent value for the price. It's a basic machine but results are good and battery life is enough to record a full 60 min tape on one charge.

None at that price

size, weight, ease of use. this will fit in your coat/jacket pocket and as such you will take it anywhere.

not too good inside when light is low. nobody will go "wow" a jvc.

JVC GR-D340E

 

It does what it says on the tin, i.e. makes videos, quickly and easily with no fuss. In fact a great little camera. If you're after all the bells and whistles you may want to look elsewhere.

None really.
