Expert review by:



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.

JVC Adixxion GC-XA2 review


The GoPro Hero may be the “sexy” action camcorder, but JVC does offer compelling features in the XA2.

Good-quality HD video ; Back-illuminated CMOS sensor, improved lens ; Rugged exterior, no casing needed ; Uses full-sized SD cards

Only one mount included

If you’re in the market for a rugged camera for capturing all of your outdoor exploits, the JVC Adixxion GC-XA2 should be on your list of serious competitors.

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...
