Summary: I just came back from a 4 day vacation to LA area. This camcorder takes great HD pictures. It's easy to use, easy to download the videos to my computer. I would highly recommend this camera to any amateur picture taker.
Pros: user friendly lightweight and very compact.
Cons: hard to use the view finder screen in the sun.
Summary: Bought the camera to film sporting events from the stands, it does a wonderful job. Great detail, the zoom is 65x so I can zoom in on shoe laces from 100 yrds away. Battery life is good, but the camera can film while it is charging. The SD card makes for easy transfer to the computer. I have not used the wi-fi options yet, but Costco does a wonderful job in putting this package together.
Summary: I ordered and it came in super fast. COSTCO always comes through! I love the ease of use, although I am still learning as I go. It would have been nice to have a manual to go with it. Still much to explore!!
Pros: ease of use
Cons: miss not having a viewfinder getting used to it.
Excellent every day HD video camera AND great research tool with external audio input

Summary: Use this camera for recording home interviews and other research topics. Several features are essential for our purpose, and the EX515 has them all... +Mic Input +Audio Monitor +Adjustable Mic Level +Record on AC power +SD recording quality +Good low-light capability Details This is, of course, a very good quality HD video camera for everyday use. Video quality in low indoor lighting is excellent, and you have some high bit rate HD resolutions on tap as well.
Summary: Just got back from a long vacation using this camcorder. It's super light and full featured. At first, I was also concerned from the previous reviewer about not being able to see the action outdoors without a viewfinder. Ignore that concern as you don't need a viewfinder. If you are on silent mode (e.g. no sound when you click start/stop recording), you cannot see the picture on the touch screen when outdoors for some reason.
Fulfills every expectation, with a surprise extra.

Summary: I had reviewed the features on several models and settled on this one because of the low-light performance, external microphone plug, audio monitor plug, the ability to grab a still photo while recording video, and long, stabilized, zoom range. I was vaguely aware that it had a wi-fi card built in, but had not thought about how that might be useful.
Summary: Het is een prima camera, lekker licht en klein maar zeer goed van kwalieteit het is ook niet mijn eerste JVC ik heb ook nog de JVC GR-D640E hiervoor heb ik er nog een gehad maar die is helaas gesneuveld dat was een van de eerste kleine camera's dus z...
