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.
