JVC GC-PX100

 

This camcorder-camera hybrid is an absolute stunner

Superbly designed manual controls ; Comprehensive range of settings ; Excellent image quality

Expensive

A button on the side of the lens enables the ring for manual focusing, although that is all it does. The other wheel operates the remaining manual settings. There's a curious Time Control button that lets you choose shooting speeds between 1/80th and...

JVC GC-PX100B Camcorder Review - Affordable Flagship

 

The JVC GC-PX100B camcorder has a bright F1.2 lens, shoots AVCHD 1080/50p videos, and does high-speed recording at up to 500fps, thus making it suitable for low-light or sports scenes. We gave it a run to see how good it really is.

Fast F1.2 lens, good low-light performance ; Shoots 1080/50p ; Slow-motion shooting at 500fps ; Good battery life ; Very affordable price

Control layout needs getting used to ; Onscreen menu design needs work ; Slow-motion shooting has resolution penalty ; No built-in storage

The GC-PX100B is an interesting camcorder with its unique shape and controls, and its sports-oriented high-speed modes and mobile apps. As it is, it already looks way more professional than the market-testing GC-PX10; with the EVF and monitor shade...

JVC GC-PX100

 

From out of left field comes JVC's strangest camcorder yet, but is it more than just a sales pitch?

It seems like the JVC GC-PX100 is about $900-worth of camcorder. If we line up all our test results from this model, compare them directly with other manufacturers' flagships, and do a little math, we find the PX100 earns a similar score to the average...

The JVC GC-PX100 Camcorder

 

Every once in a while, a piece of equipment comes out from a vendor that grabs you by the throat and gives you a shake as it yells, "Look at me!". The new JVC GC-PX100 is such a beast. In terms of camcorders, the GC-PX100 is quite different; the shape...

I love this camcorder. It is truly a step forward in design and has been carefully thought out with its intended market in mind. This is not to say it would not suit a casual camcorder user - it would, just that it takes certain functionality a step...

JVC GC-PX100

 

Great camera - especially for tricky mixed lighting conditions. Easy switch from 50fps to 100fps

Can't switch between 50fps and 60fps for international work. Crazy

Good size and weight

Battery life limited and swapping in spares is cumbersome

JVC GC-PX100

 

Picture quality, 40mbs a lot higher than AVCHD at 28mbs as well as sound ; Very lighweight, compact and well designed

Awful battery life, 1 hour supposedly, more like half that ; Some buttons too easy to press inadvertently
