B&H Photo Video is pleased to share the launch of the robust JVC GC-XA1 ADIXXION action camcorder.

JVC GC-XA1 ADIXXION Action Camcorder is a lightweight, compact, yet highly robust camera designed to be taken on almost any adventure one can think of. It is resistant to water for up to 5 meters deep, shockproof from heights of 2 meters, and resistant to dust and freezing temperatures. This strength and resistance all resides within a compact housing measuring little more than 9 cubic inches.

Within this sturdy shell lies a 5 megapixel CMOS sensor that is capable of recording full high-definition video at 1080/30p and 720/60p, as well as high resolution JPEG still images. This sensor is complemented by a fixed-focus, wide angle lens with an angle of view of 170°—perfect for capturing all of the action while it is mounted.

For sharing adventures along the way, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity allows immediate upload, and ability to stream ones video or images to sharing sites or directly to USTREAM for live feeds. This functionality also allows to wirelessly tether the camera to a smartphone, giving the ability to control and preview shots directly on a mobile device. Since the camera is designed to be worn or placed on something, this remote viewing ability is particularly useful since one will seldom be looking at the 1.5″ color LCD during the adventure.

HD Video and Still Image Recording – This small camera is capable of recording both still and moving imagery in high-resolution formats, up to 1080/30p or 720/60p videos and 5MP stills. The CMOS sensor provides a smooth image quality in a wide range of lighting conditions. Due to the hands-off nature of using this camera, the exposure settings are controlled automatically- providing a worry-free operation. However, tuning of the white balance can be done automatically or manually, which allows one to adjust the overall look and feel of the recordings. In addition to straight video and still image recording, the GC-XA1 ADIXXION also features a time lapse recording mode which can record images at intervals of 1 or 5 seconds. Video files are output as web-friendly MP4 files while still images are saved in the JPEG file format.

Built-In Wide Angle Lens The built-in lens has a very wide angle of view at 170°, which lends itself perfectly to a fixed-focus design. The wide focal length assures that essentially everything in front of the camera remains in focus and provides enough room for less than critical framing; which is quite necessary since one won’t be monitoring the footage live very often when using this camera.

Digital image stabilization has also been integrated into the camera, which keeps the images sharp and clear regardless of how bumpy the ride may be.
