HD video camera
JVC Picsio HD video camera : JVC launches its first pocket flash memory video camera, the new Picsio GC-FM1. JVC Picsio is designed for those who want a small, simple, HD video camera that allows easy sharing and delivers high quality video and still images. JVC Picsio shoots true 8 megapixel pictures and 1080p Full HD video for outstanding results even when viewed on an HDTV. Further enhancing the quality of JVC Picsio’s video is image stabilization that minimizes camera shake, even when the 4X digital zoom is used. The HD video camera is about the size of a small cell phone, and is available in three colors - Black Ice, Blue Steel and Purple Passion. |

The JVC Picsio GC-FM1 video camera boasts a stylish design with a case that features a tone-on-tone geometric pattern and chrome accents for a jewel-like appearance. JVC Picsio's high quality photos result from the use of an 8 megapixel CMOS image sensor that captures JPEG stills with up to eight-megapixel native resolution - there’s no image-degrading interpolation, so Picsio images are sharp and vibrant, whether viewed on a screen or printed.

In video mode, the JVC Picsio records 1080p Full HD video that’s easily enjoyed on an HDTV by using the camera’s HDMI connection. High Definition videos are recorded in the widely-used MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format and stored as .MOV files for easy sharing without the need for time-consuming and potentially damaging conversion. The storage of the HD video camera is on readily-available SD/SDHC memory cards.

Ease-of-use was a top priority in designing the JVC Picsio video camera, so instead of lengthy menus to scroll through, functions are easily selected directly using logically placed dedicated buttons. Power (on/off), playback, delete, video/photo mode switching, and thumbnail display mode all have their own individual buttons. A four-way controller positioned in the middle controls zoom (by pressing up/down), still image viewing (by pressing left/right), and record start/stop (the center button). The large, two-inch LCD display of the HD video camera also makes shooting easy.
