The Wi-Fi skills, combined with the free Android and iOS app are welcome but fiddly to set up.

In use this sharp, bright LCD display makes it easy to see what's in shot. It doesn't add much to the weight, either – the GX1 is relatively light at just 235g including battery.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/jvc-everio-gz-gx1-hands-on-back_2.jpg?1364298374" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> JVC Everio GZ-GX1 - controls </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The GX1 allows manual control over the likes of focus, shutter speed and aperture, the latter going down to F1.2 for artily shallow depth of field effects. But like almost all its other settings, they're buried within its painfully clunky and slow-to-respond touchscreen menu system. The only two features that get a physical shortcut button are the image stabilisation and "silent mode" which turns off the camcorder's beeps and dims its screen.</p> <p>The manual control features will appeal to more ambitious camcorder users, but without a dial or lens ring like the one found on Panasonic's X900 they're not easily enough adjusted to be of use in a real shooting situation. To get to any useful settings you'll have to skip past the first menu which contains a handful of little-used shortcuts including Wi-Fi settings, smile shutter and special effects that let you doodle on screen as you film or add face-tracking graphics like a pair of comedy glasses with nose attached.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/jvc-everio-gz-gx1-hands-on-controls_1.jpg?1364298374" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> JVC Everio GZ-GX1 - video </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Gripes about the menu aside, the GX1's large 1/2.3in sensor produces excellent results and its Intelligent Auto mode copes well with changes of scene. In daylight colours are spot on – vibrant and accurate – and there's bags of detail. It does admirably even in low light, especially when compared to other camcorders of the same size. However, perhaps as a result of the larger sensor, you're limited to a 10x optical zoom. Small compared to some, though there are few instances when more than this is required during normal shooting.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/jvc-everio-gz-gx1-hands-on-screen_2.jpg?1364298374" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> JVC Everio GZ-GX1 - battery life </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Battery life is unimpressive, lasting less than an hour-and-a-half of varied use, although there's plenty of scope for slotting in a higher capacity cell to extend life.

This can be done directly between phone and camcorder, or through local wireless networks meaning that you can potentially see through its lens from anywhere in the world.</p> <p>Another option sets the GX1 to email a short video clip or still image to a chosen address when motion is detected.

In fact, its top-heavy body looks like the result of a love-in between a DSLR and a handycam. But once you've stopped sniggering over its design, you realise this thing is pretty powerful. We're talking about 12MPs, full 1080p HD video recording at 36Mbps and a 1/2.3in back-Illuminated CMOS sensor for solid low-light performance, complimented nicely by an ISO of up to 6400.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/cameras/news-nugget/jvc-announces-high-end-videostill-hybrid-gc-px10 </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/jvc/jvc-announces-high-end-videostill-hybrid-gc-px10/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/jvc/jvc-announces-high-end-videostill-hybrid-gc-px10/news#comments JVC Tue, 04 Oct 2011 10:40:05 +0000 Lucy Hedges 418092 at http://www.stuff.tv JVC UX-VJ3 double docks iPhone and iPad http://www.stuff.tv/jvc/jvc-ux-vj3-double-docks-iphone-and-ipad/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> What do you mean your dock only takes one device at a time? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="281" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/JVC_dual_idevice_dock_0.jpg?1364401637" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-twitter-banner_3022.jpg?1364401637" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>The JVC UX–VJ3 may be an affordable £130, but it screams wealth by showing off you have two iDevices. That means you can keep movies on your iPad and music on your iPhone (or vice-versa if you're feeling fruity), without having to sync all the same content. More important than aesthetic attention-seeking, it’ll let you output to your TV or hi-fi with video-out, aux-out and a USB port that – oddly for a Mac-centric device – connects only to PC. The retro LED display comes in useful for the old-school FM radio.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/tv-and-hi-fi/news-nugget/jvc-ux-vj3-double-docks-iphone-and-ipad </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/jvc/jvc-ux-vj3-double-docks-iphone-and-ipad/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/jvc/jvc-ux-vj3-double-docks-iphone-and-ipad/news#comments JVC Fri, 29 Jul 2011 11:06:50 +0000 Luke Edwards 417248 at http://www.stuff.tv JVC Everio GZ-HM960 http://www.stuff.tv/jvc/jvc-everio-gz-hm960/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> What do you call a 3D camcorder that only shoots in 2D?

LCD TV to the UK wasn’t Samsung, Philips, Panasonic or Sony, but JVC.
