Technology will change, but there will always be cameras – Be it as a camera or a smartphone or even a tablet cameras are a necessity, but if you are serious about taking photos then you need a dedicated camera with camera functions.
People like to capture moment in their life for good memories or then just capture that sudden funny moment , but to get it right and have a good video or photo you need the right gadget. Companies therefore must provide solutions for all types of consumers.
JVC’s new series of camcorders from the Everio Range consists of rugged models and was only launched recently at the biggest technology show CES 2014. It is called Everio and it is based on the “Quad Proof” idea introduced with the ADDIXION point-of-view action cams.
QUAD proof , So what is this new term ?
It means these cameras are built tough ! Quad Proof does mean that the pair is water-proof down to a depth of 16.4-feet, shock proof to drops from up to 4.9-feet, freeze proof down to temperatures of 14 degrees Fahrenheit and guess what it is also dustproof – but I don’t know why you would need that (dustproof) when I would treat it as my prized possession and keep it in a safe place.

The first thing that I could not find was where to connect the charger to charge the camera, but this was soon sorted when I found the adapter cable that converts the mini-usb port to connect to the charger cable. You also get a Mini USB to USB cable with the camera, so you can charge it via usb if you like.
Functions are there as standard in all cameras and there are heaps of added functions as well. I am used to smartphone touch sensitivity for pressing buttons, but cameras often don’t match the smartphone sensitivity and the JVC was no different, though it gets the job done.
ZOOM in on this HD Video Camera
The camera lens’ zooming capabilities are quite good and can be extended digitally to 60x with the Dynamic Zoom technology.
You can take a still image while recording a video which is quite handy.
The battery on this HD camera is strong enough to provide a decent 4.5 hours of full HD video recording, even in tough and harsh conditions. The bonus is that the camera also supports 3rd-party external batteries.
