I bought it at a deal as an older model and am satisfied with my purchase
12 January 2015
Summary: My boyfriend really likes this camera. He frequently uses it in an industrial setting and has produced clear video and sound. I bought it at a deal as an older model and am satisfied with my purchase.
Summary: Nice little action camera...good quality, very confort and portable, nice wifi and timelapse features...the only bad of this camera is the sound (not so bad but can be noisy) need to be careful with "on hand" recording...it will chake a lot...a little bit of fish eye for my taste but looks ok, quality loss on 720p...so 60fps only recomended if is really needed. but for the price is very good option and not so far on quality results from the gopro standard..
Wassabi battery kit (2 batteries + charger) is a very good addition to it and makes up short battery life ...

Summary: The camera is above my expectation and ideal for snorkeling and as an action camera. Wassabi battery kit (2 batteries + charger) is a very good addition to it and makes up short battery life (1 hrs+). I would not use it in snapshot mode, for diving and under low light condition. Other than that - I've got what I want!
Summary: Well... Excellent in terms of built what probably satisfy most of those who buy this camera as well as in terms of ease to use since the menus are simple,easy to surf through and to understand. The main drawback is related to options of installation of the camera. In reality there are given just two of them - on the dash board in your car or on the tripod.
Even GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition has 1 star reviews
12 August 2013
Summary: I just want to say i boaught this at best buy as an open item for $126 normal price being $199. As far as msrp goes you cant beat this camera. For $199 its waterproof and shock proof out the box and ready to go with built in LCD(something that cost and extra $80 if you buy a wallet breaking GoPro). Is it the best camera on the market absolulty not howerver this little thing is a TITAN. So heres my story with this camera.
Summary: Go figure..I like a camera that's made by a camera company that's been making cameras for decades instead of a one trick pony like Go Pro. From appearance to function it's a more logical choice. The built in LCD screen could use a bit brighter record indicator. Sometimes it's hard to tell if it's recording without ruining the shot. full 1080p with settings down 480i ..Time lapse settings could be a bit deeper the XA1 only offers 1sec and 5 sec times...
Camera needed to be updated on manufacture website

Summary: After many attempts to install camera on the many computers the solution was to go to the manufactures website and format the sd card and install new software inside the camera. Spent many hours seeking solutions on how to install this on Vista - Windows 8 type computers. This is a nice camera but has a corrupt file installed inside camera. MUST go to JVC website and learn to install software. Instructions must be followed to its entirety no shortcuts.
Summary: So I own 2 gopros the newest and last years. Saw this and it was affordable so I bought it too. I love the cam. Many features I like more than go pro. Pic is great and audio is better than go pro. I like that I can digitally zoom out of the extreme wide angle. I can't understand the bad reviews concerning picture quality. My battery last for about 2.5 hours and are cheap here on Amazon. As for wifi.
