The sub-£300 camcorder features the same 1/5.8-inch CMOS sensor remains found inside the EX215 and is capable of shooting Full 1080p HD and standard definition video in MP4 format. The Intelligent Auto mode offers Area, Face and colour tracking to help sort out the best focus and exposure settings. There’s a 3-inch touchscreen LCD screen to review video and a single SD card slot to save data. Despite the price, the EX515BEK shows a noticeable improvement in low-lit shooting and has an impressive feature set for a surprisingly low price.
