JVC Picsio GC-FM2 review


Nearly every electronics manufacturer currently seems to be in a rush to release a flash memory storage HD video camcorder at near pocket money prices. They look near identical too, held vertically in the palm and used for filming like you would your...

JVC's Picsio pocket cam is ready to tackle the Flip and Sony Bloggie with its Full HD, 5MP stills and 3in touch panel…

Smart visuals and easy online sharing make this a handy pocket cam, if not quite best in class

JVC PICSIO Full HD GC-FM2 Digital Pocket Camcorder with 3" LCD, CMOS, 5 Megapixel Image, 2.1 Megapixel Video


I was greatly surprised by the video produced by this camera. I own other cameras of this type but the JVC surpasses all of them. Photo quality is good but can't compete with a dedicated digital camera. The biggest shortcoming with this camera is the...
