JVC Picsio GC-FM1


JVC's Picsio GC-FM1 is cute, compact, and captures HD video along with 8-megapixel photos.

Attractive, compact design. Records 1440-by-1080p HD video. 8-megapixel still-image capture. HDMI out.

No USB Arm, charges via cable. Very low-quality speaker. Lacks external microphone. Subpar still images.

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


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
