JVC GC-PX10 Review

 

JVC claims this isn't a camcorder that takes stills,nor is it a video-shooting camera—it's a hybrid that does both. Although it doesn't have the sexiest name in the world, this odd-looking duck has the potential to be the ultimate two-in-one device...

Excellent video ; Very good photos (both need lots of light) ; Versatile 10x zoom lens

Difficulty focusing in low light ; Noisy in low light as well ; Bulky, somewhat awkward ; Not AVCHD 2.0

The JVC GC-PX10 has some wonderful things going for it… and some serious drawbacks.

JVC GC-PX10Digital Camera Review

 

JVC's GC-PX10 is a unique little camera. The company seems to have taken the hardware of a camcorder, and simply affixed an ultracompact body to the back. Marketed as a “true hybrid,” the model is equal parts dedicated video device and dedicated still...

A “true hybrid” the PX10 is not. We’d estimate you’re getting about $80 worth of camera, while the remaining $720…well…that’s for CamcorderInfo to decide.

The GC-PX10 represents JVC's latest attempt at making a true photo/video “hybrid” device, which is something the company has been toying with over the last couple of years. The camcorder looks excellent on paper, combining a 12-megapixel still image...

A unique and disappointingly overpriced hybrid camcorder-camera.

High-quality video capabilities

Cheap casing and unresponsive screen; No in-camera editing; Inaccurate color shooting gamut

A “true hybrid” the PX10 is not. We’d estimate you’re getting about $80 worth of camera, while the remaining $720…well…that’s for CamcorderInfo to decide.

JVC GC-PX10 Hybrid Still/Video Camcoder Review

 

32GB Internal memory ; Records high-speed stills ; ISO to 6400 ; Records 300fps for slow motion playback ; 36Mbps sampling rate

Design not well suited to handheld use ; Battery access a bit clumsy

If you're looking for one camera that shoots it all, including high-speed video and stills, then be sure to check out JVC's GC-PX10 hybrid.

I have been impressedwith the variety of options this camra offers and thehigh speed option great for the smooth playback. It works best at a wide angle recording with lots of light though…so get in close if you can. The option of taking stills at the...

JVC GC-PX10

 

JVC's GC-PX10 is a camcorder, but you'd be forgiven if you mistook it for a digital camera.

12Mpixel still images ; Full HD 50p video at 36Mbits/sec ; Extensive enthusiast features

More expensive than Full HD-capable digital cameras ; No lens ring

Expert review by:

JVC GC-PX10

 

This peculiar-looking camera from JVC straddles the boundary between still camera and camcorder.

Given that the still camera market is fairly mature, and pretty much every camera worth its salt has some degree of HD video recording, we're wondering whether the PX10 has the chops to make a dent in the minds of photographers and videographers. JVC...

JVC GC-PX10 camcorder first look

 

HD camcorder with the ability to deliver good stills as well.

The JVC GC PX-10 looks like a still camera on steroids but performs well as a video camcorder.
