JVC has announced a trio of 4K camcorders that include two compact camcorders and a Super35 camcorder with a Micro Four Thirds lens mount. [Read more…]
4K is the big buzz phrase this year. Camera-wise though, the selection is still a bit slim. Sony showed off its new FDR-AX100 and Panasonic featured a prototype 4K Lumix camera. Additionally, JVC had its 4K version of the PX100 on display as a reference exhibit at CES 2014. The camera was tethered to a 4K display and streaming 4K footage from its HDMI port.
JVC recently launched the GC-XA2 ADIXXION action camera. While the name is a bit awkward, the first-gen ADIXXION came out of nowhere with some pretty cool features, including a 1.5″ LCD built into the camera and a 5x zoom. However, user complaints about battery life and WiFi connection left a big question mark next to the camera.
The second generation model now sports 1080/60p and 720/120p HD video (up from 1080/30p and 720/60p in the first-gen) for some serious slow motion capability. Like its predecessor the GC-XA2 sports a built-in 1.5″ LCD, which I thought was a great feature in the first camera and I’m glad to see it stick around. [Read more…]
It features 1080/30p and 720/60p video capture, a 1.5″ LCD and a 5x zoom. It will also capture 5MP still images and includes built-in Wi-Fi and a wireless smartphone link.
The camera should be available in August for $350. Check availability at B&H Photo.
