Good Brand

Video cameras produced by JVC are some of the better video cameras according to average user and expert reviews.


Storage

Quite Large Maximum Memory Card Size

The maximum memory card sizes of similar spec camcorders that were launched around the same time as this camcorder range from 8GB to 130GB, and the average maximum memory card size is 64GB. With a maximum memory card size of 128 gigabytes, the GZ-E105BEU has one of the larger maximum memory card sizes amongst similar spec video cameras of this age.

We compared all the other 128GB maximum memory card size video cameras to this video camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Zoom Q4 (£199.99), and the Canon XF105 (£1,999.00) is also worth considering.
