Excerpt: Along with being a slick little HD camcorder with a wonderful, intuitive feel, the JVC Everio GZ-HM860 is designed to be a low-light killer, with a bright f/1.2, 10x optical lens that boasts wide-angle coverage equivalent to 29.5mm in a 35mm camera.
Pros: Since it also shoots 11MP still photos, you can leave you digital camera behind. Built-in Bluetooth wireless lets you beam your video to a smart phone and then upload to the web; time-lapse recording transforms glacial motion into short video clips.
Cons: Weak video light and plastic body that feels like it would break easily. Overcooks warmer colors. Extra-touchy zoom controls.
