JVC GC-XA1 Review

 

A camcorder that's designed to capture action sports needs to be as tough as nails as the daredevils who pull off those stunts, and the JVC GC-XA1 ADIXXION rugged POV camcorder ($299) is just that. It's shockproof up to a 6-foot drop, waterproof down...

Good high-def video capture at 1080p ; Easy menu navigation ; Built-in Wi-Fi ; Uses standard SDHC memory card ; Extremely lightweight and rugged
