JVC ADIXXION GC-XA2 review:

 

In a category largely occupied by smaller brands like iOn, Drift, Liquid Image, and Contour , JVC is one of the few large electronics brands to produce an action cam.

The JVC Adixxion GC-XA2 is a small, lightweight action cam that's water-, shock-, freeze-, and dustproof without a housing. It uses full-size SDHC/SDXC memory cards; has a removable, rechargeable battery; has built-in Wi-Fi for remote control and...

Some of the controls are mushy and difficult to press and the battery and SD card compartment is difficult to open; heavy vibration causes some Jell-O-ey video; battery life can be brief, especially if you're using Wi-Fi; and only one mount is included.

After making several improvements and adding a list of new features to its first action cam, JVC's Adixxion GC-XA2 is easily one of the best options for capturing your thrills and spills.

This affordable action camera is rugged and has premium image quality

Its battery life is below average for an action cam

The JVC Adixxion is a well-designed, highly functional HD action camcorder. It gives you nearly everything you need in an action cam at an affordable price.

JVC ADIXXION GC-XA2

 

GoPro has a serious rival in JVC's second generation action camera

Built-in LCD display ; 720p shooting at 120 frames per second ; WiFi connectivity including USTREAM

No 4K video resolution ; Only one mount included as standard

This allows the XA2 to be waterproof to 5m, as well as dustproof. JVC also claims the camcorder can withstand a drop from 2m, as well as freezing temperatures down to -10C. These are all quoted with IP codings, so the ratings will be reassuring for...

Epic Action Cam

 

I had bought this cam from a local dealer for the same price w/ 16 GB memory, Marine case, and suction cup mount. Im still putting it threw its paces for daily usage still breaking it in so to say.

Does everything it says and then some. Still putting it threw its paces as a daily user. Im glad i didn't waste my money on a GoPro. What makes this thing better than the GoPro HERO (TM) is the LCD on the side of the camera and the Wifi so you can use...

It dosn't have a wall adapter for faster charge times (2+ hrs VS. 5+ hrs using the PC) as it is seprate purchace but does come with a USB at least so you can charge it using your PC.

Easy to operate.

 

This unit like the GoPro Hero, Swann and others do not allow charging while driving. This limits you to the battery life. Batteries only lasts for a couple of hours at best. I have a 32GB micro SD card, and could record for hours if not for battery...

To small for a camcorder not fit for purpose

JVC ADIXXION GC-XA2

 

Amazing size... perfect for everyday use ; The image quality is every bit as good as the GoPro Hero (see Utube comparisons) and the sound quality is better because it does not require an outer skin for water protection thereby inhibiting the audio ;...

Not the best in terms of battery life but this is nit-picking
