8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

Very Small Digital Zoom

The average digital zoom of camcorders of a similar age and type to the GZ-E100 is 800x, and the digital zooms range from 1.5x to 3,500x. With a digital zoom of only 200 times zoom factor, the JVC GZ-E100 has one of the smaller digital zooms amongst camcorders of this age.

We compared all the other 200x (digital) video cameras to this video camera and we think the Vixia HF M40[pl_61546_price], the Legria HF G10[pl_1059637_price], and the Vixia HF G20[pl_1564217_price] all from Canon which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this small sensor size camcorder digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might also want to consider the Panasonic HDC-TM900[plb_1824860_price] (700x and higher rated), or the Canon Legria HF R406[plb_2071911_price] (1,060x and higher rated).
