JVC Everio GZ-GX1


The JVC Everio GZ-GX1 is a high-end consumer camcorder that captures full 1080p60 video and offers up some compelling Wi-Fi features, but given its overall performance, the price is just too high.

Excellent Wi-Fi features. Sharp LCD. Full 1080p60 video. Well suited for outdoor and action video. Wide aperture lens.

Expensive. Soft and grainy indoor video. Poor still image quality.

Conclusions The JVC Everio GZ-GX1 is well equipped, with a lot of really useful Wi-Fi extras that go beyond much of the competition. Outdoor video looks great, but indoors, the quality drops precipitously. Then there's the price. The GZ-GX1 is a full...

WiFi features are fun, but the GX1 handles poorly and has performance issues

WiFi features are unique and fun to use; Good bright light performance

Slow response time; Cheap design; handles poorly

The JVC GZ-GX1 isn’t the best flagship camcorder on the market, but it’s $899 price tag is a bit lower than your average high-end camcorder. JVC cut corners by infusing the GX1 with a cheap body design, poor handling, and a frustratingly-slow internal...

JVC Everio GZ-GX1 Camcorder Review


Pixels, price and Wi-Fi functionality make the JVC Everio GZ-GX1 a serious contender in today's consumer camcorder marketplace.

Full HD 60p recording, Wi-Fi features add to functionality, Large 3.5" LCD screen, Filter thread on lens

No manual control dial or lens ring, Awkward menu system

Great video and Wi-Fi control, but awkward menus and hidden manual controls take the shine off this video star

JVC Everio GZ-GX1


The JVC Everio GZ-GX1 is a full HD camcorder with a 10.6 megapixels sensor with Wi-Fi capability. It features face recognition, built-in flash and auto modes. The JVC Everio GZ-GX1 also has a 10x optical zoom, one HDMI output, a USB port, headphone and...

The addition of Wi-Fi is a nice touch that lends lots of extra functionality to the JVC Everio GZ-GX1, but it’s the video quality that matters. Thankfully images come out great, and with lots of colour and sharpness to make the JVC Everio GZ-GX1 an...

JVC Everio GZ-GX1 Full HD Camcorder


This product performs as promised. The picture quality is outstanding in any light condition, and the stills are as clear as when taken with an SLR. Editing with the included software is easy and the results are wonderful. I would recommend this video...
