Conclusion: As we mentioned way back in the beginning, if you’re serious about taking high-quality videos, check out the JVC HD Everio GZ-HM860. No question it’s expensive, but the results under the right conditions on a big, flat panel screen are quite good. Unfortunately the stills are not in the same league. Outside with plenty of sunshine you’ll be OK, but a $250 Canon ELPH takes far better photos.
Pros: Full HD video (1080/60p), 10.6-megapixel BSI CMOS chip, 3.5-inch touch screen LCD, Takes 11-megapixel photos
Cons: Expensive, No optical image stabilization, No AF Assist lamp, LED light is useless
