Today I picked up a old JVC GR DVL 167ek for £80 second hand from a type of e bay website.
I think this orignally came out in 2002.

What attracted me was the 1/4 Optical sensor size.

Though only 10x Optical zoom the picture quailty is excellent plus was well impressed with the sound quailty .

Also has DV in/out.

The quality is actually better then my newer JVC GR D860 , I think this is due to the larger lens size.

Its a real shame with the newer cams you rarely get 1/4 Opticlas sensor size lens unless you get HD you get that and even larger optical size lens, but obviously they cost a lot more.
