Adventure Tech: JVC Has An Action Cam Too!Posted on the 28 June 2012 by Kungfujedi
The new JVC ADIXXION Camcorder (Marketing people come with the best names!) weighs in at just 4.5 ounces (127 grams) and is waterproof to five meters, able to shrug off a fall of up to two meters, and is dust and freeze-proof as well. That means, unlike some of its competitors, you won't need to purchase separate housing for basic operation.
The camera features a 1.5-inch LCD screen, built-in image stabilization and WiFi. Additionally it can shoot full 1080p HD video at 30 fps, or 720p at 60 fps. The camera's built in 5MP CMOS sensor will capture decent still images as well and it's ultra-wide angle lens should capture a lot of action. The camera is capable of shooting time lapse recordings, has a self-timer and a 5x digital zoom.
The press release for the ADIXXION says that the WiFi feature will allow the camera to connect to smartphones for an external monitor and can attach to a PC for wirelessly transferring data as well. Perhaps most interestingly of all, the camera is capable of streaming live, high definition video in real time to USTREAM without the use of a PC. Apps for Android and iOS will be available at time of release too.
Seems like a pretty powerful little device and I can't wait to see how it performs. JVC says it'll be available later this summer starting at $349.95. Seems pretty reasonable for what you get and I can see how these could potentially be used in a lot of different situations.
