JVC today announced a new, upgraded action camera – JVC GC-XA2 ADIXXION. Like the original ADIXXION, the new GC-XA2 is water-, shock-, dust- and freeze-proof – JVC’s Quad-Proof design – with built-in LCD and Wi-Fi. Performance improvements in the new model include 1920 x 1080 60p/50p Progressive Full HD recording, and1280 x 720 high-speed recording at 120fps/100fps for 4x slow-motion playback. Other upgrades include a brighter and wider-angle optical lens, improved image stabilization, a higher-resolution LCD monitor with Auto off and Auto brightness functions, a higher-resolution image sensor, a higher audio bit rate and better noise reduction.
The GC-XA2 connects to Wi-Fi much quicker and can use itself as an access point for streaming live to a smartphone or to USTREAM, uploading to YouTube, and still image transfer. The new JVC GC-XA2 ADIXXION offers a range of performance and feature enhancements that boost image quality and versatility, and the camera remains ready for most any situation, no external housing necessary.
The camera features a combination of shock-absorbent internal construction, watertight gasket-protected body casing, and a durable rubber outer skin. The body (including battery, LCD and Wi-Fi) is a lightweight 135g (0.3lbs), with mounting holes located both on the bottom and side for flexibility in mounting.The JVC GC-XA2 ADIXXION will be available in late July for $299.95.
