It has been quite a while since we have reviewed something from Geeks.com, but we've gotten back together to take a look at an item you might expect to find on their virtual shelves... A funky little electronics gadget with an attractive price tag.
This review is going to take a look at an item from Geeks.com's extensive list of digital cameras, the Jazz Elite HDV-188 5MP HD video camera. This compact and lightweight camera not only takes still images up to 5MP, but it can also shoot video in a variety of resolutions, including 1280x720 high definition.
Jazz Cameras wasn't a brand I was familiar with prior to this review, so I dug around a bit to see what I could find out about them. Their website doesn't provide too much information, and the Flash format makes it rather difficult to navigate, so other than that they feel their products are unsurpassed in the industry and that they have over 100 years of combined experience in the camera industry, I couldn't find out much about them.
Features and Specifications:
Given the state of the Jazz Camera's website, Geeks.com is your best bet for details specific to the unit provided for review, where the following introductory quote can be found:

The Jazz Elite HDV-188 is sold in the compact plastic blister pack shown below.

Other than having to hack my way in with scissors, I don't have any complaints so far.
