JVC's second-generation POV camera is a solid performer. Improvements include better slow motion (half "real-time" speed of 1080p at 60 fps, and 720p at 120 fps). Image stabilization is also super cool. We particularly like the standard LCD screen, which takes the guesswork out of framing your shots and changing settings in the field. The WiFi capability and dual standard tripod mounts are also welcome features. We did find that the overall image quality leaves a bit to be desired, as the footage was generally lacking clarity and color accuracy. The camera uses standard SD cards, enabling long recording times, (10 hours of 1080p at 60fps) with a 128mb card. We do wish the package came with more mounting options, even though experienced image makers will make good use of the double ¾ inch standard tripod holes.
