JVC Kenwood has launched a new flagship camcorder model that captures high quality video of fast-moving action, Procision GC-PX100, and the GC-XA2 Adixxion action camera which sports the "Born Tough" Quad-proof design so it's ready for action right out of the box.
Equipped with a 1/2.3-inch 12.8-megapixel back-illuminated CMOS Sensor, the camcorder has the ability to shoot Full HD 1920 x 1080/50p at 36Mbps for extremely high quality images. High bit rate progressive recording enables Full HD slow-motion video playback, with the full range of recording speeds (from high-speed to time-lapse) can be easily controlled by a single dial next to the lens. Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity allows playback images to be beamed to and viewed on smart devices.
The "JVC CAM Coach" app developed specially for the GC-PX100 from the Apple App Store or Google Play lets you watch a video stream on a tablet while scribbling annotations onto the playback image, and more. Another highlight of this app is Twin View, which provides simultaneous side-by-side playback of two different video clips after they've been transferred to a tablet. There's also the Tagging function, so users can tag any scene for easy access at a later time.
Rare camera features are also available, such as Zoom Position Memory, allowing you to instantly switch to Full Wide, Full Tele, or a user-selectable position in between, enabling responsive capture of your subject, such as immediately going from a field full of people to a specific individual.
Waterproof to a depth of 5 meters, the camera is capable of shooting 1920 x 1080 60p/50p Full HD videos, as well as 120fps/100fps 1280 x 720 high-speed recording for excellent slow motion. In addition to being dustproof and freezeproof, the rugged model is able to withstand a drop from a height of 2 meters, and can be mounted on a surfboard, snowboard, or skateboard. This Quad-proof design is a combination of shock-absorbent internal construction, water-tight gasket-protected body casing, as well as a durable rubber outer skin.
Lightweight at just 135g (including battery), it comes with Wi-Fi connectivity, enabling real-time checking as well as live streaming over the Internet. The Quad View function of Adixxion sync. app allows the video streams from four separate ADIXXION cameras to be viewed simultaneously on a smartphone screen. Other features include Time-Lapse recording for photos and videos, Burst mode for capturing multiple stills at up to 15 frames per second, and Simultaneous REC for photo and video shooting concurrently.
