JVC intros two new touchscreen Picsio pocket camcorders

JVC Picsio FM2 and WP10 1080p camcorders arrive

JVC this morning reworked its Picsio camcorders to give them new interfaces and refresh the features. The GC-FM2 and GC-WP10 replace the usual back buttons with a three-inch touchscreen that can show on-screen controls and full-screen playback. Although it uses a less-precise resistive panel, the screen choice allows input even with gloves.

Both shoot at a native 1080p with a specific iFrame (960x540) resolution option for Mac users that want to edit in iMovie without having the video temporarily resized during the editing process. Still photos capture at a native five megapixels.

The FM2 is a traditionally designed body for every day use, while the WP10 is designed for modest underwater use with waterproofing down to 10 feet; it likewise adds MP3 audio recording to appeal to students. JVC ships the FM2 at the start of next month for $180, while the WP10 arrives at the end of the same month for $200.
