Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewMediocre


    Nice size; macro mode; electronic image stabilization; takes SDHC cards.


    Garish-looking design with hard-to-use buttons; lame software.


    The JVC GC-FM1's impractical design and poor software hobble an otherwise competent mini camcorder competitor.

Good Inexpensive Camera

Like some of the other reviews, I too feel it is a good camera for the price. One thing I notice with it is the video seems just a bit jumpy at times but it may be in the viewer software I use? Other then that I enjoy it and carry it with me almost all of the time. Still's are ok, not the best, not the worst, adequate if I need to get a quick shot in. My Iphone takes good pics and I use that most of the time for stills. I'd rate this an 8 out of 10, in overall quality, but a 10 out of 10 for the value.

Cheaper and quality product.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought this camcorder because my friend suggested.
I like a nice product.

Fast, lightweight and easy to use a camera.
Record a good start. But the quality is poor in low light. Other than that good. I think in general use outside.

I suggest those who think to take.

Very good camcorder

This camcorder has very good video quality. Nice color, good white balance, very smooth video. I especially like the wide angle view when in VGA mode. The audio is not the greatest, it sounds a little tinny. The built in speaker is very small. The still pictures are a little blurry, you have to hold the camera very still while taking the picture. It is one of the easiest camcorders to use, very simple controls. Easy to charge the battery, just plug it in to a USB port. Battery life seems good. Feels very good in your hand, nicely balanced. Overall I give it a thumbs up for very good video quality.

JVC PICSIO GC-FM1 HD Compact Video Recorder

Compact, great quality for the price, easy to use, Great choices between HD video and lesser quality video for longer times, Zoom worked well... Drawbacks were microphone was not as good picking up sounds past several feet, software on camera when downloaded to my Vista Notebook was not as easy to use as presented, also took up alot of space on computer, 4 G min. are needed on Camera Storage card for 40 minutes of HD video!... Still photo shots were very good quality and a nice bonus!

This is a good product for the money, it is a JVC and it is nice and small which I like but when using the camera, there is no flash. Very nice for outside during the day and very nice quality. Overall, If you want compact with a camera and camcorder, sure very nice....
