JVC's new GC-XA1 ADIXXION action camera is loaded, combining the best features of the competition into a compact, everything-proof package. No extra add-ons to buy. Is this the most-powerful action footage weapon yet?
The GC-XA1 ADIXXION weighs just 128g and it's waterproof, shockproof, dustproof and freezeproof. It packs a 5-megapixel CMOS sensory, shoots Full HD 1080p footage as well as 1280x720 footage at both 30 and 60 fps. It's also capable of shooting stills. Like all action cameras, the GC-XA1 ADIXXION uses an ultra wide-angle lens. The 1.5-inch LCD screen allows you to review footage directly on the camera in the field, and using the camera's built-in Wi-Fi, you can also beam video to your smartphone or laptop. With these last features, our biggest concern would be battery life.
So the GC-XA1 ADIXXION is absolutely loaded, and what's especially attractive is that it comes with everything already built-into the camera — there's no need for a special waterproof case, external monitor or plug-in Wi-Fi adaptor. And the price is right too: GC-XA1 ADIXXION The will be available in coming weeks and will cost just $US350. [JVC]
