JVC Has Good Video Camera Reviews

JVC is one of the superior video camera brands according to average expert and user review score data that we have collected for all camcorders.


Lens System

Has an Image Stabilizer

The GZ-VX815BEU has an image stabilizer. Most of the other big total megapixels video cameras that have been around for a comparable time to this video camera also have an image stabilizer.

We compared this camcorder to all the other camcorders with an image stabilizer and we think because of it's better review score, the Panasonic HX-WA30 is also worth considering.

The average digital zoom of similar spec video cameras that came out more than two years ago is 170x. At 200 times zoom factor, the GZ-VX815BEU has a fairly big digital zoom compared to most of the other similar spec video cameras that have been available for a comparable time to this camcorder.

If this JVC video camera digital zoom is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the HC-W850 ($1,020.99) (1,500x), or the HC-V770 ($497.99) (1,500x) both from Panasonic which also has a higher rating.
