JVC Picsio GC-FM1 review: JVC Picsio GC-FM1

 

Nice size; macro mode; electronic image stabilization; takes SDHC cards.

Garish-looking design with hard-to-use buttons; lame software.

The JVC GC-FM1's impractical design and poor software hobble an otherwise competent mini camcorder competitor.

Needs some work

 

1080P video playback is actually fairly good quality but the playback pauses about 1/2 second every 10 seconds or so. Distracting! Do not plan on using this as a digital camera as the still image quality is incredibly poor.

Easy to Use ; Great Zoom ; Mobility ; Zoom range/performance

Poor Image Quality ; Poor In Low Light ; Poor Sound ; Poor Still Image
