JVC PICSIO jumps into HD pocket cam market at $200

JVC PICSIO

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 , despite the PICSIO’s lack of mic input port.

Looks like Amazon has the JVC PICSIO for $179, a $20 discount.

JVC Picsio GC-FM1 should hit Japan by October

Posted by Mark Rollins Categories: Cameras, Handhelds

JVC Picsio GC-FM1

It would appear that is going into the Kodak Z series territory with the Picsio GC-FM1.  As you can see, it is one of those rectangular frame jobs with 1080p video, 8-megapixel stills, a 2-inch LCD, as well as HDMI out. 

These video cameras are set to hit Japan by the beginning of October for about $220.  However, we found this odd video that is reminiscent of Mr. Peanut and those animated M&M guys.  You might notice that there are at least two western languages (English and French) in the commercial.  We’re betting that it’ll make its way to Europe and North America soon.

JVC NX-TC5 iPod dock stereo with digital TV support

JVC NX-TC5

Here’s an interesting stereo from known as NX-TC5, which includes the usual such as an AM/FM tuner, iPod dock, and a CD player to “rip audio to MD or USB stick at 4x speeds.”

Some of the more unusual features include the movable front-panel and a motion-activated 4.3-inch display. There is 512MB on board for photos, but the video playback uses a built-in 1 Seg digital TV tuner or WMV video stored on USB media. The TC5 should launch in Japan late next month for ¥62,000 (about $655) or ¥52,000 (about $549) if you want the NX-TC3, which lacks MD support.

JVC RA-P30

It’s JVC’s turn to come up with a new, portable iPod audio system. The RA-P30 features an alarm clock, FM radio, stereo speakers with 3D surround sound, remote control, and AC adapter.
