That may be true but from experience with one of the Jazz camcorders, which was also purchased at Big Lots, I believe it will be quite a challenge. The optics on that camcorder are cheap (plastic if I am not mistaken) so it will make getting a good quality image challenging at best. I purchased one for my students to play with and the video quality was never that good. It was durable though. They shot a video of the Jazz camcorder and it was dropped not one but twice and survived both falls.

I understand and of the ones listed in my previous post the best is probably the used Panasonic. I hope you can find some settings to help you get better video from the Jazz. Let me know if you have any specific questions and I will see what I can do to help you.
