JVC HD Everio GZ-V515


JVC's HD Everio GZ-V515 achieves better image quality than expected from such bijou body.

Good image quality ; Good value ; Stylish, compact chassis

Manual settings buried in main menu ; Almost no discrete control buttons

It would be hard for the V515 to have fewer discrete buttons on its body. Apart from the necessary power switch, zoom rocker, photo snapshot and record buttons, there’s just one other button available, used for toggling between image stabilisation...

JVC HD Everio GZ-V515


This is exactly what I was looking for: full HD video with time lapse. Image quality is very good and it has a wide range of features ; It does exactly what its specification describes and does it very well

The compact design is great but this means that the battery is relatively small and therefore has rather limited capacity ; Manual control can be fiddly especially manual focusing
