Conclusion: The JVC GZ-VX815 packs a hefty set of features – high-definition video capture, 12-megapixel photo capture, and just plain “fun” features – all in a small profile that will fit quite comfortably in your pants or shirt pocket.
Pros: High-definition 1080/60p video recording, 12-megapixel JPEG still images, Compact, slim profile, Wi-Fi with remote monitoring
Cons: Short battery life, Menu navigation sometimes quirky, Zoom control speed jumpy
Summary: You already have a hi-def video recorder on your phone already, so why do you need a camcorder? Because you'll end up with better footage, for one thing. If size has put you off using a camcorder, the JVC’s compact form might win you over.
Pros: Lots of creative features, Smart image stabilisation
Cons: Interlaced footage not ideal for monitors, Some compacts beat it for video quality
