JVC Does Pocket Camcorders Right With 1080p GC-FM1
The new GC-FM1 is one of the more stylish pocket camcorders that we've seen, boasting a prism-like finish and a few bold colors to set itself apart from the plain competition. As for specs, the FM1 includes an 8MP sensor (for still photos), a 2.03MP sensor (for video recording), support for SD/SDHC cards and a 2" LCD for instant playback. It captures clips in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264, and there's even an HDMI output for pushing those fresh captures right back onto your television. There's a 1080p, 720p, VGA and QVGA mode on tap, though we get the feeling that "1080p" isn't exactly Blu-ray quality.
There's no word yet on an American release, but it should ship soon in Japan for around 20,000 yen (or just over $200). If you're looking for one of the wildest promotional clips to ever grace a pocket camcorder, just mash play below.
