Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the
Jazz HDV-205, it's the Jazz model with the 5x optical zoom and the 4x digital zoom.

I can't seem to find anything on the internet about it, or find anyone who has
actually used it. I'm interested to discover if it has auto focus, and manual features
such as exposure/shutter.

Does anyone have one of these? How does the quality and bitrate compare to the
HDV-178 or 188?

Is there a site for Jazz camera manuals?

At least they finally have a contact number. So you can call them to see if you can obtain a manual (if you have the camera but no manual of course).

Generally camcorders such as these won't have much in the way of manual features. It's rare for them to have manual focus and aperture or shutter speed.
