Hi,

 

I'm new here, and I really need your help.

 

I need to choose between theses camcorders.

 

Price doesn't matter since I'm getting it with my airmiles rewards.

 

JVC Everio GZ-VX815BU

JVC Everio GZ-E100WU

Sony Handycam HDR-CX320B

Samsung HD F90 HMX-F90BN

Canon Vixia HFR400

 

I need something user friendly, with good image quality and good low light performance.

 

According to my research the JVC GZ-VX815BU seems the best choice, what do you think ?

 

Thank you for your help :)

Thanks for the input, but I prefer to choose in the 5 listed in my original post, since I can get them for "free" with a reward program.

What? I started a thread on the RX100 I bought a year ago. It was trashed for having lens aberrations. Why is that on your short list?

I dont need a camera like the RX100, but that doesnt mean its not good for another kind of shooter.

You guys forget that we are less than 1% of the population. wink.gif

The user needs something user-friendly and with good low light - those 2 cameras are great in those aspects. He doesnt care about real resolution, bit depth, artifacts, color info etc. He doesnt seem to be a hardcore enthusiast. (BTW, im just guessing biggrin.gif )

For that kind of user, the RX100 can be a great camera.
