At 64 gigabytes, the GZ-VX715SEU has a pretty standard maximum memory card size compared to most of the other similar spec video cameras that were launched around the same time as this video camera.

We compared this video camera to all the other 64GB maximum memory card size video cameras and we think because of its better review score, the Canon Legria HF M52 is also worth considering.

If this video camera maximum memory card size is too small for you then you might want to consider the Canon XF105 (128GB) which also has a higher rating.
