Background and Identification

The JVC Adixxion (pronounced addiction) is an action camera/camcorder released to compete with the Go Pro and Contour style action camcorders. Like these cameras, it can easily be mounted to a helmet, bicycle handlebars, sunglasses, backpack... pretty much anything! It is extremely small and compact, allowing for maximum mobility.

One of the best features of the JVC Adixxion is the built-in wi-fi which allows you to upload photos and videos without having to wait until you are able to connect the device to a computer. You can even stream your videos live!

The camera is highly durable; being waterproof to a depth of up to 5 meters (16.4 feet), and shockproof up to 2 meters (6.5 feet), which means that the camera can withstand a drop from that height. Typically, those types of features require the purchase of an additional case. It is also freeze proof and dust proof, which makes it a great choice for your next trip around the world!
