    I just bought a jvc everio ex215 camcorder.in bright sunlight I could only see my own reflection . I had no choice but to take it back. We have no camera shopswhere i live and it was purchased from an electrical chain.I have a camera shop who say they will let me see a camera working in sunlight before I buy. They only stock 3 cameras 2 of which are JVC which I am now dubious about. They also stock Sony HDRPJ200E. Can anyone help me with this choice. Other than this I have to order from internet camera unseen and untried I have had Sony in the past with good results

    Sony camcorders of the same class of the JVC Everio ex215 come with the same type of articulated LCD. Most people find that adjusting the LCD can lessen the glare caused by sunlight. If that doesn't work for you, you'll have to look for a camcorder with a viewfinder, which can be hard to find among the newer camcorders.
