    WiFi Not The Best

          Comments about JVC GZ-GX1 Full HD Everio Camcorder with WiFi (Black):

          The WiFi has a full 2 second delay, which for my business purposes doesn't work. I can't frame a shot property, keep the subject in the frame, and adjust property with a 2 second delay from what's seen by the camera and then seen on my iPhone.

            Comments about JVC GZ-GX1 Full HD Everio Camcorder with WiFi (Black):

            I bought this ccamcorder because of the WiFi Features, being able to remotely monitor, zoom start and dtop recordings. This allows me to place the camera above a crowd and record without interference.

            I was also hoping to be able to use this camera to live stream video, but VidBlaster and Livestream for Producers will not connect and show video via WiFi, the Camera still needs to be attached to the computer with a video capture device.

            Image is very crisp and vivid. Large 3.5 inch LCD screen is easy to work with. The many other features is almost overwhelming and will take some time to learn. Wish there was a built in holder for the sylus it is so small I am afraid it will get lost easily.

            Transfer of video and pictures is very easy by just placing the memory card in the card reader on my laptop and copying them.
