JVC Everio GZ-R315DE


The Everio GZ-R315DE is JVC's mid-range Full HD camcorder, and like almost every camcorder the company now makes – apart from the venerable 3D-shooting Everio GS-TD1 – it comes in a rugged housing. This means it's more resilient than the average...

Quad Proof ruggedness ; Great value ; Long five-hour battery life

Limited manual controls ; No removable battery ; Non-optical image stabilisation

The JVC Everio GZ-R315DE is a reasonably priced camcorder in a solidly rugged chassis, good for capturing family events in every condition.

JVC Everio GZ-R315


Very simple to use. Fast startup. Very easy to download video to a PC. Amazing battery life. Love the time lapse feature.

Not easy to hold one handed as it is so small. Fiddly to open access cover at first but once you get the knack it's easy.
