If you are getting ready to get out and into some active winter sports this season, here's a new piece of gear to bring along. This JVC Adixxion GC-XA2 ($299.95) is a new helmet cam / action camera, a small lightweight all-weather high definition video camera that is waterproof, dustproof, shockproof and freeze-proof. It has built-in Wi-Fi that allows the camera to link to a smartphone to frame shots no matter where the camera is mounted, and you can stream video to a PC and wirelessly transfer images from the camera to a computer.
The Adixxion shoots Full HD video, has a high-speed recording mode for slow motion playback, and offers time-lapse recording. Burst mode takes multiple stills photos at up to 15 frames per second, and it’s also possible to shoot stills and video at the same time. The GC-XA2 has an F2.4 lens and features a digital image stabilizer with Gyro Sensor, an LCD monitor with a resolution of 115k pixels, and an eight megapixel image sensor.
