JVC GZ-GX1 Camcorder Review
The WiFi works surprisingly well, but the JVC GZ-GX1 is a letdown in numerous other categories.
Loaded with a fresh new WiFi feature, the GZ-GX1 is JVC's new flagship model in the company's Everio line of consumer camcorders. The WiFi features work surprisingly well, but the camcorder is a letdown in numerous other categories: it handles poorly, offers a limited battery life, and its LCD toucshcreen is plagued with a terribly slow response time.
The GZ-GX1 lacks any kind of internal memory, so you need to purchase an SD-type memory card before you can go out and shoot with the camcorder. JVC currently lists the GX1 with an $899 MSRP, which is a bit lower than the flagship models from Canon, Panasonic, and Sony—but all come with some amount of internal memory to offset their higher price tags.
