At the heart of the Everio GZ-EX515 is a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor that delivers an outstanding Full HD image and improved low light performance. JVC led the way with built-in Wi-Fi in its camcorders and expands the available Wi-Fi features. Wireless data transfer possibilities include sending video to a smartphone or tablet (AVCHD converted to high definition MP4 or standard definition), as well as non-converted iFrame data transfer to an iPod or iPad or Android smartphone. JVC's free app for using wireless communication functions is available for download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Market. To make it quick and easy to get rolling with Everio, Wi-Fi models are supported by a QR code-based Wi-Fi setup utility, and all models are supported by a mobile user guide that's been optimized for smartphone viewing.
In addition to native Full HD resolution AVCHD recording and Standard Definition recording, Wi-Fi models also offer an iPhone/iPad-compatible iFrame recording mode. This model works with iMovie and Final Cut Pro X. It also incorporates K2, a technology developed and used in professional sound studios, which is applied recording. Auto Wind Cut intelligently reduces wind noise without that annoying unnatural muting of sound. There's also a powerful two-hour battery for longer recording and streaming. JVC engineers have also redesigned Everio's Wi-Fi antenna to provide a drastically improved powerful wireless connection.
For ease-of-use, this Everio camcorder features a "Best Play" function that provides simple digest playback of the best scenes from recorded footage. This is actually a cluster of functions comprised of Best Scene Mode, which allows tagging of favorite scenes while recording or later on, Best Face Mode, which automatically picks out scenes containing registered faces, and Best Smile Mode which picks out just the scenes containing great smiles. The Sports Scoring is a function that lets the user record a running tally of the score for a sporting event by simply tapping on a smartphone.
