JVC GZ-GX1 Camcorder Review
The GZ-GX1 has a good mix of automatic features and manual controls, but the camcorder's overall usability gets bogged down by the sluggish performance of its processor. The menus are slow to load and open, which makes accessing any control—be it manual or automatic—a frustrating process (especially during recording). The touchscreen interface is equally at fault here, as it often refused to respond to the selections of our tapping fingers. If the GX1 didn't have these faults, it would be a great camcorder for beginners, but we found the interface too frustrating to work with.
