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

Don’t use it to shoot still images ; Short battery life (about one hour per charge) ; Small 1.5-inch LCD screen

Overall, the JVC GC-XA1 is a rugged, lightweight, and good-quality HD POV camcorder. Like its namesake, you just might get addicted to using it.

Decent GoPro Alternative

 

I have seen many Youtube JVC-vs-GoPro2 comparison videos before buying this JVC camera. If a posted Youtube video had Japanese description, the demonstrated JVC video quality was far better than GoPro2. However, most of other comparison videos clearly...
