July 3rd, 2012
If you live life to the extreme, and want to document it, then you need to check out the new JVC GC-XA1 ADIXXION camcorder. It has a bunch of features, and the ruggedness of this device will let you take it with you anywhere. And you can look really cool if you wear it with goggles, like this guy:
The GC-XA1 ADDIXION weighs 4.48 oz, is waterproof to 16.4 feet, shockproof to resist a fall from 6.5 feet, dustproof and freeze-proof. It has Wi-Fi connectivity, a 1.5-inch LCD monitor, image stabilization, full HD at 1920 ×1080 at 30p and 1280 × 720 at 60p. Video is stored in MP4 format, allowing you to quickly watch it on a smartphone of laptop.
It comes with a goggle mount, flexible mount, and two lens protection covers. It will be available later this summer for $349.95 (USD).
Clearly JVC has seen the popularity of the GoPro line of cameras and is taking aim with this model.
