Point-of-view action video is some of the most compelling viewing you'll ever watch on your high-definition screen. There's no substitute for seeing the world exactly as the surfer, the skier, the mountain biker or the skydiver sees it. Get ready to see it better than you've ever seen it before with JVC's compact, lightweight and gracefully appointed GC-XA1 Adixxion action camcorder. JVC has taken the concept of action videography and carefully refined it, making the Adixxion camera way more versatile than its competitors.
The Adixxion is Wi-Fi® capable; there's nothing extra to buy for this feature. Embedded Wi-Video software makes it capable of streaming video to your Windows® PC right out of the box, and apps available for Apple® iOS® and Android™ make it possible to use those devices as external monitors. Stream your footage for live viewing via the USTREAM social network/streaming site, or upload it in minutes to the online community of your choice.
You won't need a waterproof enclosure for most shots either. The GC-XA1 Adixxion is waterproof to 5 meters (over 16 feet) without any external protection, and it will withstand a fall from up to 2 meters (6.5 feet). Plus, it's dust- and dirt-proof and freeze-proof as well. Considering it also has a 1.5" LCD screen as an integrated part of its design, it's fair to say that this camera is the "elite special forces" performer of its class.
The Adixxion specializes in delivering clear, computer-friendly MP4 HD video. It shoots in industry standard 1080p (30 frames-per-second) and 720p (30/60 fps) formats, and has alternate 1280 x 960 (30 fps) and WVGA capture options. Its 5-megapixel CMOS sensor also delivers great still shots, which can be assembled to create great time-lapse shots with the internal self-timer. An on-board stereo mic delivers solid sound from your camera's position.
This camera uses commonly available SD cards, and is compatible with lots of mounts you probably already own, thanks to its incorporated tripod mount. Specialized mounts and accessories are available as well. Two mounts, a goggle mount and a flexible mount, are included to get you started.

Overview: The JVC GC-XA1 Adixxion is a versatile action camera for capturing HD video or 5 megapixel still images. Its "quad proof" design lets you record in extreme conditions. The Adixxion's tiny size and multiple mounting accessories makes it easy to attach to most anything. In addition to recording videos and still images, the camera can stream audio and video via Wi-Fi, or act as a wireless webcam.
Quad Proof: The GC-XA1 is built to withstand the following extreme conditions:
Pocket-sized: The Adixxion's tiny form factor makes it easy to attach it just about everywhere. It weighs just over 1/4 pound, and is only 1-7/16"W x 2-1/8"H x 2-15/16"D. It has two standard 1/4" tripod mounting sockets for attaching the camera at virtually any angle, and to any of the multiple accessory mounts.
Battery: The camera is powered by the BN-VH105 Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery (3.7 volts, 1050 mAh). It charges in the camera via USB in approximately 5-1/2 hours. With the optional AC-V17UL AC Charger, you can charge the battery in 3-1/2 hours. A fully-charged battery can power the camera for approximately 70 minutes of continuous recording, or 40 minutes of typical recording.
Lens: The GC-XA1 has an F2.8, fixed focus, super wide-angle lens (170°) for capturing all of the action. It has a focus range of 23.6"-infinity. Two GL-LP001 lens protectors are included. The built-in digital zoom allows you to zoom in from 1x to 5x.
LCD Monitor: The camera's 1.5" LCD lets you monitor your recordings in progress or watch your videos and photos in playback mode. The camera's menu settings can be set using the LCD monitor as well. A clear plastic LCD protection film is included to help prevent scratches to the monitor.
Storage Media: The camera records video and still images onto SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards. No memory cards are included with the camera.
Image Sensor: The Adixxion is equipped with a 5 Megapixel CMOS image sensor.

Still Images: The camera can record 5 MP still images with a resolution of 2592 x 1944. Approximately 3600 images can be stored on an 8 GB SDHC card.
White Balance: The GC-XA1 offers one automatic and five manual white balance settings: Auto, Daylight, Fluorescent, Tungsten, Blue (marine), Green (marine).
Picture Inversion: The Picture Inversion feature allows you to invert the pictures on the monitor so you can view them from above.
Digital Image Stabilization: To reduce camera shake, the Adixxion offers digital image stabilization (DIS).
Recording Modes: The Adixxion offers several shooting modes:
Connections: Behind the battery compartment cover, there are two connectors: a Mini USB 2.0 port for connecting to your computer, and a Mini HDMI connector for connecting to an HDTV. A short USB cable is included. A Mini HDMI-to-HDMI cable is required for viewing videos and still images on a TV.
Wi-Fi Compatibility: The GC-XA1 has built-in Wi-Fi allowing you to share your videos and photos, as well as a range of other functions. Using the WiVideo application (Windows only), your computer will search for your camera and connect automatically. Once you are connected, you can wirelessly transfer files from the camera, watch live streaming video from the camera on your computer, and use the camera as a wireless webcam for online video chatting.
Note: WiVideo is compatible with Windows XP (SP3), Vista (SP2), and 7 (SP1).
Mobile WiVideo: In addition to connecting wirelessly with your computer, you can use your mobile phone or tablet to connect to the camera via the WiVideo app, available for iPhone/iPad and Android systems. You can also use your mobile phone as a remote control to take photos or videos from the camera wirelessly. There are different methods of connecting: via access point, via mobile hotspot, or directly to camera.
