Greetings:

Has anyone made a review on the Jazz HDV 189 Camcorder?

What type of quality does this camcorder have?

Has someone used this camcorder, would appreciate your feedback.

Looks interesting. Sadly these models on the 'fringe' of the consumer market tend not to get much in the way of reviews so you either have to wait until someone posts a test video to youtube or simply bite the bullet and buy it yourself!

Where did you see it for sale? Do they have a decent return policy?

The Jazz HDV178 was almost the perfect camcorder when you took it's $99 price into account. Small with good low light. I wish they would make a newer version with the same characteristics and price but with an increased bitrate to get rid of the pixelization. I'd buy one. Who knows, if we're very lucky, perhaps this may even be it?

Thanks Rgvcam and Fishycomics for your replies.
