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 1280×720 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]
