Smart visuals and easy online sharing make this a handy pocket cam, if not quite best in class

I was greatly surprised by the video produced by this camera. I own other cameras of this type but the JVC surpasses all of them. Photo quality is good but can't compete with a dedicated digital camera. The biggest shortcoming with this camera is the...
