Adixxion - Epic action sports camera,
This review is from: JVC GC-XA1 Adixxion HD Action Video Camera with 1.5-Inch LCD - Black (Electronics)
I want to start out by saying that I am a huge Go-Pro fan, have used the cameras for several years now. Go Pro has set the bar for action sports cameras. I have dabbled with Contour, wasn't happy with their product at all. So I was stoked when a friend brought up JVC Adixxion. Stoked, new technology and cameras always makes me happy.
A friend of mine told me about the camera, right off the bat I was stoked. An actual camera company stepping behind an action sports camera....weird. So needless to say we met up and skated and surfed for an afternoon. When he threw me the camera I flipped out, it is soooo small! It is tiny and faces a proper direction when put on a handle or carriage, so the balance isn't akward like the go pro(even though its tiny).
The most legit part of the camera is the LCD screen built into the side, don't have to pay EXTRA! Built in wifi, playback features, time lapse are 5 second segments, comes with clear lense cap and surf mount...all this is stuff I had to spend more money on in the end. Oh ya and when you buy accessories you don't have to buy seventeen pieces just to get one, there are a ton of attachments you can choose from.
I know, I thought the same thing, looks and feels legit but how does it preform?
We filmed all afternoon at the skate park, and finished the run with a sunset surf. We headed back that night goofing around at dusk shooting "lifestyle shots", just testing stuff out. I couldn't believe how amazing the quality came out. The camera tracked so well while skating, sound was super crisp(love to hear the crack of an ollie), and underwater...that was the best part. I felt like I was watching a high end surf flick. Was a little weary of the low-light issues people complained about, but our "lifestyle shots" at dusk came out epic.
I honestly haven't been this stoked for filming my friends riding in a long time! Thanks JVC for brining back that feeling.

Stoking is habit forming.
