I actually forgot JVC made an action camera... has anyone even used it? Or even seen one in person? It looks a lot like the Drift, except at least 40 or 50 people have heard of Drift.

Yes, I have one (GC-XA2). Works very well. has many advantages over Gopro, like the 2 tripod mounts, the small screen (very usefull), the antishock and waterproof design... The image quality is a little bit lower than a Gopro 3BE though, but it's a lot cheaper.

I have one along with GoPro 2 and 3's.

I think they (JVC XA-2) are great little complete units. Integrated colour screen for framing. A much easier menu layout. Water proof without an additional housing. In general use, what I particularly like is the ease of turning the unit on and off and selecting functions through the full colour, integrated interface.

It would always be my first choice for shooting adhoc, for example on the group rides I do on the bike. Easy to put in the back jersey pocket and pull out and shoot one handed.

The only drawback I can see is the small, non upgradable battery size, you get 1 hour and 20 minutes.

I use frequently on time-lapse jobs along side the gopros and DSLRs. The 8 megapixel still produced, can create very good 4K video. As mentioned, the image quality may be a little less then the Gopro, but only in extreme contrast.

At two thirds the price of the GoPro, they are a very useful, versatile, low cost addition to the kit.

Cheers,
Robert
