JVC Everio GZ-E15


The JVC Everio GZ-E15 offers decent image quality for a low price.

Decent image quality for the money ; More features than a pocket Internet camcorder ; Low price

Manual settings hard to get to ; No digital photography abilities ; Limited range of scene modes

One area where the JVC Everio GZ-E15 definitely puts itself ahead of only slightly cheaper pocket Internet models is its manual settings and features. You can enable fully manual mode using the button on the top of the camcorder, just behind the zoom...

Ultra Compact


Well priced, small and lightweight, yet producing good quality video and audio. Straightforward to use, but start/stop and zoom controls could be better positioned. Crisp, clear image on fold-out screen, even in bright conditions.

At last, a camera that is easy to use.


I have had three video cameras, they all used various types of tape, at last I have a camcorder that works with a memory card, I take out the card and put it in the lap top and have instant recordings, this camera is so easy to use as well, I have used...

Small, lightweight and compact. Easy to use even for a beginner

No protective case, needs to be purchased separately. The battery provided has the shortest battery life of batteries which fit this camcorder, approx 2 hours of continuous use
