JVC GZ-RY980HUS Reviews

Everio GZ-RY980HUS Quad Proof 4K Camcorder with 10x Optical Zoom (Gray) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Must Have Camcorder! Being one of the Pioneer of Camcorders, JVC always delivers on exceptional design and hardware. Here are the little details I appreciate on this one: The change from Micro USB to USB-C port is a nice touch, the dual SD Card slot is a plus as well, Incredible Picture and Video Quality with 4K/30fps, A Great build (Quad-Proof of course) rocking that space grey color, The Simplicity of the Menu makes it very easy to operate with no extravagant learning curve, and lastly I'm so glad they brought back WiFi capability on this camcorder because I do lots of V-logging and that's a major plus for me as well... Just awesome! Happy with the product, Thank You JVC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST INVESTMENT I had been looking for a good quality camcorder for while,when i saw that my favorite brand came out with a 4K camera I was stoked. The menus are easy to learn and use the picture quality is outstanding,my snorkeling videos come out amazing on this. Transferring files to my PC are a breeze and dual SD slots are a gem!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wi-Fi is an added benefit I bought camera for the amazing 4K videos I saw it produced. I purchased a 3rd party Wifi dongle and added many Wifi capabilities to camera. Now I can perform live streaming in 1920*1080

According to JVC they have a WiFi dongle for this camera, does anyone know the model # of it or how to find it?
Asked by: Aric
It looks like on the back on the JVC Everio GZ-RY980HUS there is a USB port. I am not sure and have not tried it , but you might be able to connect a USB nano Wifi adapter here. I would contact JVC and ask them before trying anything.
