JVC is getting in on the pocket camcorder game with its new Picsio GC-FM1. The Picsio shoots 1080p video as well as 8MP still shots. Since you’ll be shooting HD video, JVC put in image stabilization to reduce camera shake. The camera charges via USB, has a HDMI out, a SDHC card slot, and a 2-inch LCD.
You’ve got to give it to JVC for trying an interesting pattern on the device – they call it “a tone-on-tone geometric pattern and chrome accents for a jewel-like appearance.” You won’t confuse this with a Flip or Kodak any time soon. The controls look very iPod-like with a circular direction pad and a center button. JVC claims that operation of the Picsio can be done without menus. It costs $199.95 and is available now.
