What this review for JVC GC-XA1EU shows, however, is that it can be used under different situations, not just when playing sports or engaging in extreme adventures. And get this; the camera is sturdy even without a case.
1920 x 1080P Full HD Video with HDMI(R) Output
The camera films in HD up to 1080p/30fps, and supports other resolutions such as 960p, 720p and WVGA. Compared to other devices, it’s quite versatile, what with the resolution ranging from a website quality to Blu-ray quality.
This JVC GC-XA1EU review shows that the super-wide lens capture videos through its f/2.8 focal length lens. Not only this, the same lens can be used to take still images at a resolution of 5 megapixels. Simply choose the Photo mode if you want to enjoy this feature.
1.5” LCD Monitor
According to several JVC GC-XA1EU reviews, the 1.5” LCD monitor is quite small. The large menu icons and buttons, however, more than made up for the size of the screen. Still, you can use the monitor to view what you’re filming and also for playback. The menu system of the camera is also more intuitive and the interface is more user-friendly.
Digital Image Stabilizer (DIS)
Is the equipment capable of filming minus the shaking? Well, this is exactly what you’ll find out with this review for JVC GC-XA1EU. Its DIS ensures a smooth camera motion while filming even if the real action is anything but. So even if you’re running while recording, it won’t show so much on video.
Wi-Fi feature set
Through the camera’s Wi-Fi, you can stream a video to a smartphone, regardless if it runs on iOs or Android, through the JVC’s WiVideo app. But you’ll have to download the latest WiVideo firmware first to enable the Wi-Fi features. The update is available at JVC’s website. You can also broadcast a video, when you set up a channel using the U-Stream service.[youtube height=”500″ width=”780″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XjRylbGDKE?rel=0[/youtube]
