JVC Picsio GC-FM1

PC Magazine
6 April 2010
  • Conclusion: In the ever-evolving pocket camcorder realm, JVC's Picsio GC-FM1 is hardly a game-changer, but a slick design and a robust feature set including HD video and 8-megapixel still-image capture make it a solid choice.
  • Pros: Attractive, compact design. Records 1440-by-1080p HD video. 8-megapixel still-image capture. HDMI out.
  • Cons: No USB Arm, charges via cable. Very low-quality speaker. Lacks external microphone. Subpar still images.

JVC Picsio GC-FM1 Camcorder Review

Hardware Secrets
25 February 2010
  • Summary: Pocket sized camcorders like the JVC Piscio FM1 are very convenient. Although you won’t get the optical zoom and image stabilization that you’d get with a full-size dedicated camcorder, you will get a lot of functionality. The Piscio takes very good videos in HD, which is its biggest claim to fame.

The GC-FM1 HD shoots great bright-light video, but is hampered by its build, finicky controls and execution of marquee features

Good Gear Guide.au
5 August 2013
  • Summary: The JVC GC-FM1 HD pocket camcorder shoots some of the best bright-light video we've seen, but it's hampered by its plastic build, its finicky controls, and the execution of its marquee features.
  • Pros: Excellent video in optimum lighting, good 4x digital zoom and macro mode
  • Cons: Poor low-light performance, cheap plastic finish, too expensive for what it offers

  • Summary: On paper, the JVC GC-FM1 is a winner. Specs-wise, it has only one rival in the high-definition pocket camcorder realm: the excellent Kodak Zi8.

JVC Picsio GC-FM1 camcorder

Pocket Lint
9 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Available in a garish pink, blue or much more attractive black, as with any mobile sized camcorder, users shouldn't expect quality to match that from a camcorder with a larger lens, optical zoom and a price tag five times as much.
  • Pros: Cool design, lightweight and compact, HDMI connectivity offered alongside AV and USB out, memory expandable via (optional) SD or SDHC cards
  • Cons: Mono microphone and speaker, screen visibility compromised when cropped to ape 16:9 widescreen ratio, no convenient flip out USB arm offered as on some competitors

  • Summary: Testets lättaste och minsta kamera har en trög av/på-knapp och lite krångligt handhavande. Man behöver dock sällan gå in i menyn då inställningsmöjligheterna är få. Bilden blir mycket skarp vid goda ljusförhållanden, men rörelserna blir ryckiga och släpar efter.

Teste da Filmadora JVC Picsio GC-FM1

Clube do Hardware
15 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Infelizmente, o design bonito e bons vídeos são arruinados por controles sem feedback táctil e software ruim. Se você sobreviver a esses dois inconvenientes, terá uma ótima filmadora.
