Read the full JVC PICSIO GC-FM1 Pocket Camcorder review

We have to admit to being mostly impressed at how JVC has met the challenge of the changing camcorder market with the PICSIO. Like every other pocket Internet model it has major limitations, thanks to the fixed-focus lens and complete lack of manual settings. Despite this, the GC-FM1 is capable of decent video and reasonable performance in low light. It’s also competitively priced, although you do have to factor in a small extra cost for SDHC media.

The reviewer missed an obvious flaw that tends to get forgotten in the rush to praise these devices - the battery is fixed. So it'll be a great device until the day that gives out...requiring you to buy another one.

Fantastic piece of kit.so what about the battery...also the whistling noise on 1080p is bad so i only use on 720p and everything is hunky dory.........

I imagine that by the time the battery dies, the NEXT BIG THING will have arrived and these things are getting cheaper all the time.


Amazing!
