JVC PICSIO jumps into HD pocket cam market at $200
JVC is throwing its hat into the US pocket HD camcorder rat race, officially bringing their PICSIO cam to the US, a few weeks after announcing the PICSIO’s Japan release details. JVC is advertising the PICSIO GC-FM1 as a 1080p cam, which is a lie, since it actually does 1440x1080 at 30fps. You also have a 720p mode that shoots at 60fps, which is where we think the sweet spot is on the PICSIO. The device can also capture still 8 megapixel images, a nice value-added feature, and all the content gets recorded onto an SD card that you’ll have to provide yourself. You can get the PICSIO in purple, black, or blue, and at $200, it’s definitely a competitor to the Kodak Zi8, despite the PICSIO’s lack of mic input port.
Looks like Amazon has the JVC PICSIO for $179, a $20 discount.
