Conclusion: Pocket-sized shooters are meant to be about fun and fuss-free uploading. The Picsio scores highly on both of these counts, even if it does lack the all-round abilities and versatility of the Kodak PlaySport.
Summary: JVC’s first Picsio camcorder, the FM1 , was pocket sized, fresh and fun but it didn’t do enough to unsettle the market-dominating Flip or rugged Kodak PlaySport . But now the Picsio is back and ready to show off its image and feature improvements. A new (and more Flip-like) design means the FM2 doesn’t look so retro. There’s now a 3in touch-activated display and, unlike its predecessor, this Picsio can shoot Full HD 1920x1080 movies.
