With a maximum memory card size of 128 gigabytes, the JVC GZ-E105 has one of the larger maximum memory card sizes amongst similar spec camcorders of this age. The average maximum memory card size of small sensor size camcorders that have been around for more than two years is 67GB, and the maximum memory card sizes range from 8GB to 130GB.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 128GB maximum memory card size video cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Zoom Q4 (£199.99), or the Canon XF105 (£1,799.00).

SDXC Memory Card

SDXC memory card

The GZ-E105 supports a better memory card type than most video cameras that have been available for more than two years. This video camera supports an SDXC memory card, whereas most small sensor size camcorders that were released more than two years ago support an SD memory card. In addition, this JVC camcorder supports an SDHC memory card. SDXC cards are SD cards but with a much higher capacity and faster processing speeds. They have a maximum capacity of 2TB (Terabytes).

An SDXC memory card is in fact the best supported memory card type across all small sensor size camcorders that came out around the same time as the GZ-E105.

A MicroSD (Transflash) memory card is the worst supported memory card type across comparable types of camcorder.

SDHC cards are DS cards with a higher capacity of up to 32GB.

7 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Most small sensor size camcorders that were launched more than two years ago do not have an interchangeable lens. The JVC GZ-E105 is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.

We compared this video camera to all the other camcorders with an interchangeable lens and we think the Sony HVR-Z7 is also worth considering.

The digital zooms of video cameras of a similar type and age to the GZ-E105 range from 1.5x to 3,500x, and the average digital zoom is 800x. The GZ-E105 has one of the smaller digital zooms (only 200 times zoom factor) amongst small sensor size camcorders of this age.

We compared this camcorder to all the other 200x (digital) video cameras and we think the Vixia HF M40, and the Legria HF M56 both from Canon which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this JVC video camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Canon Legria HF R406 (1,060x) which also has a higher rating.

Only Digital Image Stabiliser

This JVC camcorder has a Digital image stabiliser, whereas most camcorders that have been available for around the same time as it have an Optical image stabiliser. Some compact cameras have digital Image stabilisation only, which simply boosts camera sensitivity (ISO) to obtain a faster shutter speeds to help prevent blur. No hardware is involved.

This video camera's image stabiliser type (Digital) is in fact the worst image stabiliser type across all small sensor size camcorders that came out more than two years ago.

Across similar types of video camera the best image stabiliser type is Optical.
