JVC Updates Adixxion Action Cam

JVC GC-XA2 Action Cam

 

First introduced in 2012, JVC just announced a newer version of the Adixxion action camera that offers better image quality and more versatility. Like the original, there is still no need for an external housing for the camera to achieve its 5m waterproof, 2m drop proof, dust proof, and freeze proof status. With wi-fi and the LCD screen built into the camera, the new model is capable of recording 1920 x 1080 60p/50p Progressive Full HD recording, and1280 x 720 high-speed recording at 120fps/100fps that allows much better slow-motion playback. The lens gets updated as well, with an F2.4 wide angle lens for brighter and faster shots.

Still photography is offered in both time-lapse, and burst mode with Simultaneous REC offering video and photos at the same time. Built in features like digital image stabilization help the 8mp back lit CMOS sensor take better photos at speed.
